For the citrus-cured salmon

  • 25g coriander seeds
  • 400g salt
  • 400g white caster sugar
  • 20g lime zest
  • 80g lemon zest
  • 500g fresh salmon side, skinned
  • 100g hay

For the yuzu creme fraiche

  • 100g creme fraiche
  • 20g yuzu juice
  • 10g chives
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • slices of grilled sourdough, to serve


To cure the salmon, crush the coriander seeds using a pestle and mortar and combine with the salt, sugar and zest. Sprinkle a layer of the cure mix onto a tray and place the salmon on top of it. Cover the salmon with the remaining cure mix. Cover and place in the fridge for 2 hours. Remove the salmon from the tray and wash off any remaining cure very gently with cold water.

To smoke, wrap the salmon in muslin, tying lightly with twine. Dampen the muslin with cold water. Lay the hay inside a smoking cage and place the wrapped salmon in the middle, covered with additional hay. Close the cage and place over hot coals of the Hub or Fusion BBQ to ensure the hay catches alight. Once all the hay has burnt out, remove the smoking cage from the coals and place inside a large container. Cover with cling film and leave to stand for 20 minutes, repeating the entire smoking process for a stronger smoky flavour. Remove the salmon from muslin and slice with a sharp knife. Set aside in the fridge until needed.

In the meantime, make the yuzu crème fraiche by mixing all the ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside in the fridge until needed.

To finish the rillette, place 100g of sliced smoked salmon into the bottom a ramekin and top with atablespoon of yuzu crème fraiche. Serve with lightly grilled slices of sourdough bread.

Best gift ever!

My family knows how much I adore having loved ones around and cooking up a storm - so they know just what to get me when I was given the 4K! So sleek and intricately designed, the quality is ridiculously good.

Dad absolutely loves his new 4K

After doing my research I decided to buy the 4K as Dad’s fiftieth present. Let’s just say he is truly in love. I can only speak from my experience, but the quality of food created from this barbeque is like no other.
