Pat salmon fillets dry lightly on both sides with a paper towel, then place on a rimmed baking sheet.

Prep the salmon


Combine equal parts Kosher salt and granulated sugar in a small bowl, then stir to combine. You can scale up or down depending on how much salmon you're using.

Make the dry cure


Allow the fish to sit out at room temperature for 10-15 minutes to remove excess moisture and water.

Cure for 10-15 minutes


Either place the cured salmon in an ice bath or rinse under cool water, using your hands to gently rub off any remaining salt and sugar. Pat dry with a paper towel, then place on a cutting board.

Rinse off, then cut into cubes
