This cured salmon recipe features a little Slavic twist with a light marinade of sliced onions & oil. Simple and so much cheaper than store bought varieties!
– 2 lb salmon fillet – 1/2 cup salt – 1/4 cup vegetable oil – 1 yellow onion
Pat the salmon fillet down with a paper towel. Salt each side of the fillet generously, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and place it in the fridge for 12-24 hours.
Rinse the salmon under cold water and let it soak for a few minutes in a bowl of water. Remove the salmon from the water and pat it dry.
Using a sharp knife, slice the fillet at an angle into very thin pieces.
Place the salmon in a dish. Cover it with oil and diced onions. Let all the ingredients sit for at least an hour before serving. Enjoy!
