Ingredients:

 2 x 6oz salmon fillets, skinned

2 tbsp organic sugar

2 tbsp sea salt 

1 tsp coconut oil

1 lemon wedge 

 

Method:

  • Mix the sea salt and sugar together and sprinkle over the salmon. Cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours to allow the salmon to cure. If you want a stronger flavour, then you can cure the salmon for up to 24 hours. 
  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6.
  • Remove from the fridge and rinse thoroughly under cold water. Pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Brush the salmon with a little coconut oil, heat a non-stick pan and fry the salmon until crispy and golden brown.
  • Transfer the salmon to a baking sheet and put into the oven for 8-10 minutes until just cooked. 
  • Serve with a crispy green salad and enjoy!

* Once cooked can be kept in the fridge and eaten within 4-5 days.
