For years, we’ve been soaking salmon fillets in cheap vodka to remove any hint of fishiness. One night, we had the inspiration to substitute a bottle of hard cider—the fizzy stuff—for the vodka, and voila! A new recipe was born. If you have pink curing salt—also known as Prague powder or InstaCure—use it. If not, don’t worry. Your salmon will still be wonderful.
