Dill and Gin Cured Salmon Recipe, with Fatty’s Organic Spirits

Fatty's Organic Spirits

We all know that our favourite tipple is oh-so-versatile but did you know it can also create a sensational gin-infused salmon?

This fabulously fresh take on a Salmon Gravalax is created by events catering specialist Sojo Kitchen and includes the aromatic herb dill as its key ingredient.

The (not so!) secret ingredient is the delicious Fatty’s Organic London Dry Gin, which also happens to feature dill as a primary botanical.

We recommend pairing it with their Cucumber & Dill Gin Mojito on the side for added freshness!

Ingredients

  • Side of salmon⁠⠀
  • 100g Table salt⁠⠀
  • 100g Sugar⁠⠀
  • 100ml Fatty’s Organic Gin
  • Fresh dill, finely chopped⁠⠀
  • Lemon zest⁠⠀
  • Peppercorns⁠

Method

  1. Place the salmon side in a large tray skin side down.
  2. Combine the sugar, salt, lemon, gin and pepper.
  3. Add the mixture to the salmon, coating both sides and ensuring it is evenly distributed.
  4. Cover with cling film and leave overnight in the fridge.
  5. After 24 hours, take the tray out of the fridge and wash off the marinade with cold running water and pat dry. Finally, thinly slice or cube depending on how you wish to serve the salmon. ⁠⠀
