Vodka Cured Salmon


Prep: 10mins Curing: 4-6 hours (or overnight)

Serves 12



1kg salmon
200g Cornish Sea Salt Flakes
50g caster sugar
2 cooked beetroot - grated
Zest of 1 orange
2 tbsp chopped rosemary
1 tsp dried rose petals
1 tsp pink peppercorns
2 generous shots (50-75ml) of Douglas Fir Vodka

Serving suggestion:
Cornish Sea Salt crackers
Fresh dill sprigs
Selection of pickled vegetables (we used homemade pink pickled onions, picked radish, samphire & fennel, and sweet dill pickled cucumbers)


We created this delicious vodka cured salmon to celebrate the launch of the Moorland Spirit Company's Douglas Fir Vodka. If you don't have any Moorland, you can use a plain vodka, or leave it out altogether if you would prefer. This salmon makes the perfect canapé ingredient.


  • Mix all of the cure ingredients together then spread over the salmon to cover it entirely on both sides.
  • Leave to cure for 4-6 hours, or, if you want a stronger flavour, leave refrigerated overnight.
  • To serve, wash the cure from the salmon under cold water. Pat dry and slice very thinly.
  • Serve with Cornish Sea Salt crackers and a selection of pickled vegetables.
