Based on a recipe from Anna-Maija’s and Juha Tanttu’s book, Food from Finland. Short of knowing a fisherman, I get my salmon for this from a reliable sushi-grade fish monger. In Portland, Maine, this would be Brown’s Trading Company. If anyone in Maine knows of another reliable source, please let me know!
