Directions

  1. Combine salt, pepper, lemon zest and chopped cilantro.
  2. Rub both sides of the fillet liberally with the curing mixture, and seal tight with plastic wrap. Topping it with a weight would help.
  3. Cure the fillet in the fridge overnight. (For a firmer texture, flip the salmon and continue to cure for up to 3 days.)
  4. Right before serving, rinse off the curing mixture. Slice and enjoy.
