This salmon dish I have been hash tagging all over the world. For me salmon is best served after a light cure as I think the fish is creamy, seasoned and full of flavour this way. The dish is then finished with the season at that time. Normally some acidity and freshness. Here I have finished it with a simple lemon curd and simple summer salad garnish.

Cover fish flesh and skin. Cling film with skin side up with tray and put a weight on top of fish (1-2kg of weight)
Cure for 12-36 hours depends on fish
Wash cure off skin and wipe cure off flesh (if you wash the flesh-it removes flavour.)
Vacuum pack fish or cling film tightly and leave over night before you slice.
Mix everything together into a vacuum pack bag, seal and cook at 75C for 60 minutes.
Blend until smooth.
