Atlantic salmon is on the Marine Conservation Society’s Fish to Avoid list (goodfishguide.org), but you can get good quality farmed organic salmon or MSC-certified Alaskan salmon.
Prepare the salmon at least 12 hours (or up to 3 days) in advance, but don’t leave it in the curing mixture for more than 12 hours; after this time, wash and dry the fish and keep it chilled, wrapped in clingfilm.
The garnish can be prepared and the salmon dressed 1 hour before assembling the blinis; keep in a cool place.
What's the perfect wine match?
Our friends at Majestic Wine recommend Definition Albarino. From Northern Spain, where the weather is distinctly ‘British’, this sea-influenced white has the tart acidity and fresh citrus notes to cut through this rich and creamy salmon canapé.
