You need very fresh, top-quality salmon for this recipe. Tell your fishmonger it’s to be cured, not cooked. Organic salmon is generally produced in a sustainable way but wild is best, if your budget allows
To save time and stress, prepare and cook the röstis the day before. When cool, layer between sheets of baking paper and keep chilled. To serve, arrange the röstis in a single layer on a couple of baking sheets, then crisp up in a hot oven for 5 minutes.
You can also make the apples a day ahead, leave to cool, then chill overnight. Let them come to room temperature before serving.
Parboiling the potatoes first when making röstis stops them turning grey when they’re grated.
