HYGGE'S BEETROOT LAKS HOME CURE

HYGGE’s Beetroot Laks Home Cure is handcrafted by Danish chef Caecilie Hougaard Pedersen and HYGGE smørrebrød.
The unique combination of sea salt, sugar and natural beetroot powder makes for a sweet and earthy Beetroot Laks for those looking to experiment with contemporary Scandinavian cooking.

Dry curing is a simple technique that will make your fish firmer, more vibrant, and more flavourful. HYGGE’s Beetroot Laks Home Cure makes curing your own fish super easy, even for the untrained chef.

HOW TO CURE YOUR OWN SALMON:

You need:

  • 1 side of fresh salmon (approx. 500g) with skin
  • 75g of HYGGE’s Beetroot Home Cure
1. Pat down the fish gently so it is dry and place it skin down. 
2. Sprinkle HYGGE’s Beetroot Laks Home Cure onto the flesh of the salmon, and rub gently.
3. Cover and wrap the fish tightly in cling film and leave to cure in the refrigerator for at least 48 hours, turning the fish approximately every 12 hours. (You can leave the fish in the cure for longer, if you wish a stronger flavour, and firmer texture to the fish)
4. After at least 48 hours, remove the fish from the cure, discard the leftover cure and liquid and rinse the fish gently.
5. Now simply slice thinly and enjoy, for example with seeded rye bread, pickled beets and a dollop of cottage cheese.
