Berry Cured Huon Salmon (Gravadlax)


  • 1 side Huon Salmon
  • 85g raw sugar
  • 130g sea salt
  • 1 punnet raspberries
  • 1 punnet strawberries
  • 1 punnet blackberries
  • 3g Tazziberry or black peppercorns
  • ½ bunch dill
  • 1 orange (zest)
  • 1 lemon (zest)


  1. 1
    Ask your fish monger to fillet and pin-bone the Huon Salmon.
  2. 2
    Combine all of the ingredients (apart from salmon) in a blender and mix on high for 30 seconds, which will turn to a thick liquid.
  3. 3
    Place the salmon skin side down on baking paper in a suitable sized tray that will fit in the fridge.
  4. 4
    Completely cover the fillet with the berry mixture using the baking paper to trap in the liquid by using a standard office stapler. This will ensure maximum contact between the fish and the cure.
  5. 5
    Cling film and set aside in your fridge for at least 24 hours, but no longer than 36. The longer it is left the more firm the fish will become, but it will also take on more salt.
  6. 6
    After curing, remove the fillet from the tray and using a little water, rinse away the cure mix.
  7. 7
    Pat dry with paper towel or a cloth.
  8. 8
    Your fish is ready to be thinly sliced away from the skin. Serve with lemon and fresh salad.
