Thai Cured Salmon And Noodle Salad

While the salmon needs to be cured overnight in a spice-and-herb brine, the extra work is well worth the effort to enjoy this refreshing salad. To give the salmon a char-grilled flavour, cook it on a pre-heated barbecue plate.

  • 2 tblsp dry sherry
  • 1 tblsp flaky salt
  • 1 tblsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tblsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tblsp chopped fresh mint
  • ½ tsp ground white pepper
  • 2 tblsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
