Recipe Yield: Total time: 15 minutes, plus curing time | Serves 8 to 12
1/2 cup coarse sea salt 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons black peppercorns, toasted and cracked 1/2 cup finely chopped chives 1 (1 1/2-pound) salmon fillet, skin on and pinbones removed 3 to 4 tablespoons gin

Step 1 In a medium bowl, combine the salt, honey, peppercorns and chives. Set aside.

Step 2 Brush the top of the salmon fillet generously with the gin.

Step 3Spread the cure mix over the top (flesh side) of the fillet, then wrap the fish tightly with plastic wrap. Place the salmon, skin side down, in a large baking dish or a large, rimmed, non-reactive baking sheet to catch any juices.

Step 4Refrigerate the fillet until it is firm to the touch, about 48 hours (timing will vary depending on the thickness and size of the fillet). Uncover the fillet, rinse and dry off. The cured salmon will keep for up to several days, wrapped in dry parchment and refrigerated.
