I have a question about the recipe "Lapsang Souchong Cured King Salmon with Ginger Lime Cream Cheese" from QueenSashy. Is the instruction to use frozen rather than fresh salmon important?

Lilroseglow, here is my five cents of wisdom... Have I cured unfrozen fresh salmon -- yes. But the FDA states (and with a good reason) that "it's always best to cook seafood thoroughly to minimize the risk of foodborne illness. However, if you choose to eat raw fish anyway, one rule of thumb is to eat fish that has been previously frozen."

Thank you. I wasn't aware of that food safety rule. Now as a side question, how does that rule apply to sushi?

It very much applies to sushi. However, freezing does not completely eliminate the bacteria and also, does not deal with the bacteria that can come from unsafe handling practices (like handling frozen an non-frozen fish using same equipment/space). Therefore all the cautions that are attached to raw seafood.
