Now, here are the different steps you will have to follow to make this beautiful dish with a preparation of 20 minutes and a refrigeration of 36 hours
Remove any bones in the salmon. Rinse it briefly and pat it in paper towel. Slice the very oily or too thin parts on the edges if necessary.
Line a flat container, the size of your salmon fillet, with cling film, allowing the edges to fall largely to the outside. Mix salt, sugar, 3 tablespoons of spices and 1 bunch of chopped dill. Spread half in the bottom of the dish. Lay the salmon fillet on top, skin side down and sprinkle with the rest of the salt/sugar/spice mixture.
Fold back the cling film. Place a planchette on the fish, weigh down with a pack of milk or soup.
Reserve 36 hours in the refrigerator. Every 12 hours, open the cling film and carefully empty the water released by the fish.
At the end of this time, quickly rinse the salmon. Pat it dry. Sprinkle with the remaining spices and chopped dill. With a wide, sharp knife, take off the skin of the fish. Then, cut it diagonally into thin slices.
Serve chilled with rustic bread and heavy cream seasoned with lemon juice, dill and salt.
