    Sharon123's Note:

    A fillet of lightly cured salmon hinting of ginger, coriander, and Szechwan peppercorn. Cured salmon is surprisingly easy to make! A piece of plastic wrap and a few day's patience is all that's required. Adapted from the China Moon Cookbook. Cooking time is marinating time.
