Basically, you brine the salmon over night, and then layer it with aromatics in a cute jar and top it off with olive oil. My photo is pre-olive oil. After adding the olive oil, the jar was not quite so pretty. You also make a jar filled with par-boiled potatoes.
It really is a lovely presentation. I tried the veggies and potatoes and unfortunately was not impressed with the flavor at all (basically I just got oily veggies). St. James tried the salmon and said it was good. Yeah! I still couldn't bring myself to try it. However, lest you think I am so set in my ways that I can't try anything new...look what I did try this week:
That's right, I tried raw oysters (two to be exact) and I didn't die. They were ok...not something I'll run out to eat all the time, but at least I got over this hurdle. I know you're probably thinking, heck, if you can try a raw oyster, why not the raw salmon...don't know...just can't. Don't judge me too harshly...maybe one of these days.
Check out how my everyone else fared this week at French Fridays with Dorie.
