How to Cure Salmon

Curing is a technique that is used to preserve fish or meat. The most commonly used method is a dry cure but an alternative would be to use an acidic marinade such as in a ceviche recipe. Cured fish is also sometimes known as gravlax.

Salmon and other oily fish are better for curing due to the high-fat content. Not only does curing help preserve the fish in top quality, it can also be used to add flavour! Curing fish is very easy to do yourself and the flavour combinations are endless. Here’s how to do it.

1.Prepare the base of your curing mix by mixing sugar and salt in equal quantities. Make sure there are enough to cover all the fish fillets you want to cure.

2.Add your choice of seasonings. Make sure to grind and crush any whole dry spices you want to use. You can use things like lemon or lime zest, coriander seeds, chilli flakes…Anything you like!

3.Rub the dry cure mix all over the salmon fillets, making sure that all sides are generously covered.

Curing salmon4.Place in a dish and cover in cling film to cure in the fridge for anywhere between 1 and 24 hours. The longer you leave the salmon in the dry cure mix, the stronger the flavours will be so it’s up to how strong you would like your fish.

5.Take the salmon out of the fridge and rinse thoroughly in cold water to remove the excess mix. Pat dry and the fish is ready to be eaten as it is in thin slices, or ready to be baked, grilled or poached!

How to cook tuna steaks

Our Tuna is a sushi-grade fish, which means it can safely be eaten raw as sushi, ceviche or tartare! However, if raw tuna is not your thing, our tuna steaks can easily be cooked using the method you prefer.

Preparing your tuna before cooking

Our Tuna steaks are cut and ready to cook. There is no need to rinse the fish before cooking, just pat dry using kitchen towels.

Grilling tuna steaks

Before tuna steaks are thick and meaty, they are perfect for cooking on the BBQ, grill or pan. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side on medium-high heat so the outside is cooked but the tuna is still fresh in the middle, just like a medium-rare steak.

Baking tuna steak

If you prefer tuna cooked through, try baking it. Wrap the steaks in foil or parchment paper along with a drizzle of olive oil, some seasoning and your favourite veggies and cook for 10-15 minutes, until just cooked through and flaking easily.

Cooking tuna steaks in sauce

To prevent steaks from drying out, you can slowly simmer steaks in a sauce of your choice, for about 10 to 15 minutes. Try a tomato-based sauce with some basil or Italian herbs!

Defrosting Fish in the Microwave

Defrosting fish in the refrigerator or in cold water are ideal methods to thaw fish properly and preserve quality and freshness. However, if you’re really short on time you can always use your microwave defrost function.

<<Method 1: In the refrigerator

<<Method 2: In cold water

Method 3: In the microwave

Most microwaves now have a defrost function that can be used to quickly thaw food stored in the freezer. However, it’s very easy to overdo it and can be a method that’s more difficult to control. Microwaves being primarily designed for high heat, it’s a method we wouldn’t recommend unless you are very short on time.

Remove frozen fish from their bag or packaging and place in a microwave-safe dish. Use the defrost function of your microwave to thaw the fish for a few minutes.

 

It is difficult to give guidelines for defrosting times in the microwave as this will highly depend on both the thickness of the fish and the power and settings of your microwave.

Check on your fish often to make sure that it hasn’t started cooking. The fish will be properly defrosted when it is pliable but still feels icy to the touch. Make sure to cook the fish immediately after defrosting in the microwave.

You can find many recipes such as stews and soups that will be best for thawed fish. Some methods of cooking will be more appropriate such as poaching or baking – you can even sometimes cook fish from frozen!

How to Cook Salmon Fillets

Salmon is one of the most popular fish in the UK, if not in the world! It is part of the oily fish family and has many health benefits, including being good for heart health thanks to omega-3 fatty acids. It’s a delicious fish that can be cooked using a variety of methods.

How to Bake Salmon

Roasting salmon in the oven is one of the easiest ways to cook it and is perfect for weeknight dinners. Make sure salmon fillets are bone-free before starting. If you are buying salmon skin on, you can choose to remove the skin before cooking or leave it on.

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius (or 180 fan). Place your fillets in a roasting tray, either on foil or baking paper and use kitchen towel to pat dry. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper (and any herbs or spices you like) before putting the tray in the oven. You can also use baking paper to form little parcels to place your salmon along with veggies. It keeps the fish moist and makes for an effortless dinner!

A good rule of thumb is to count 4 to 6 minutes per half-inch of thickness but it’s always best to keep an eye on your salmon fillets so that they don’t overcook. Generally, thick fillets can take 8 to 10 minutes. Salmon fillets are done when they are opaque and the flesh flakes easily.

How to Pan-Fry Salmon

Pan-frying is a method best suited for salmon fillets skin on, so you can achieve crispy skin and tender flesh. Before starting, pat dry your salmon fillets and season them with salt, pepper or any spices you prefer.

Bring a frying pan to a medium-high heat. Once hot, add enough oil so that the bottom of the pan is covered by a thin layer of oil. Carefully place your fillets on the pan, skin side down.

Do not move the fillets and let it cook for about 4 minutes per half-inch of thickness. The flesh gets pale when cooked, which can help you see where you are in the cooking process. When about 3/4 of the fillets are cooked, carefully flip over. Let the fish cook for another minute or two (depending on the thickness of the fillet) then remove from the pan and serve.

How to Poach Salmon Fillets

Poaching is a great way to cook salmon fillets and keep them moist while flavouring the fish at the same time. You can poach fish in just water, but our suggestion would be to use stock, milk or coconut milk to add some flavour.

Bring liquid to a simmer and carefully add your salmon fillets. Your fillets do not have to be covered by the liquid, in which case you just need to carefully flip fillets after 2-3 minutes and cook for 2-3 minutes. Poaching fish can take 5-7 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets. The flesh should easily flake when the salmon is cooked.

How to Steam Salmon Fillets (Without a steaming basket)

To steam salmon fillets when you don’t have a steaming basket, you can use a similar method to poaching. Use a pan with a matching lid and fill your pan with a small amount of water (half an inch). Place a heatproof plate or dish with your salmon fillets on the water (the water should not touch the fish) and cover with a lid. Cook for at least 5 minutes until the salmon is opaque.
