  1. Sprinkle both sides of the salmon fillet with salt and place in a deep tray or zip lock bag. Pour in the Rosé and a dusting of Fresh As Freeze Dried Raspberry Powder to your liking.
  2. Cover the dish with cling film directly on top of the salmon or close the zip lock and refrigerate overnight
  3. Remove the curing liquid and pat dry with paper towels
  4. Just before you are ready to serve, season with freshly cracked pink peppercorns and a dusting of Fresh As Freeze Dried Raspberry Powder

Chef’s Tip: If you want to achieve very thin slices, you can freeze the cured salmon fillet for an hour or two then use a very sharp knife to cut to your desired thickness.

For the Rose and Pink Peppercorn cured Mt Cook Alpine Salmon, we recommend having a range of pre-prepared ingredients laid out for your guests to pick and choose how they want to build their cured salmon verrine.

Some great pairings we think could be:

For a dressing we recommend just a simple mixture of olive oil, salt and lemon juice to highlight the beautiful flavours of the salmon.
