I am making cured king salmon for a party this Saturday. The cure is salt, turbinado sugar, Lapsang Souchong, a pinch of Chinese five spice, a pinch of chipotle powder and a pinch of black pepper. Disclaimer: I have not tried this combination of spices before and this could end up in a complete disaster. In case it works out – how would you accompany it? I would like to use gently scented crème fraiche or mayo. I often make Earl Gray cured salmon and serve it vanilla mayonnaise. It could work here, but I would like to try something new. What do you suggest?
