This simple, cured salmon will have you wondering why you ever splurged on expensive store bought varities. Perfect for quick appetizers!
If you are familiar with Russian Seledka/Herring this reminds me of it in some sort of way. Salmon does have a different flavor but that is the closest thing that I could think of.
This salmon works great as an addition to an egg breakfast or a simple salmon sandwich with some veggies.
