"Early explorers knew the benefit of salt and sugar curing seafood. Cured jewels of the sea sustained them through months of hard physical exploration and adventure.
Inspired by this age old method of food preservation we've crafted a delicious, yet delicate, version of this explorer's dietary classic. But to satisfy our own need for culinary adventure we've also added a handful of spice and lashings of Young Henrys Noble Cut Gin to boot. "
In fact, this all came about when Mark was invited by our fav brewers to use their Noble Cut Gin as an ingredient in one of our dishes.
Teaming up for the Hot Chefs series, here's Mark's gin-cured Ora King Salmon salad using Young Henrys Noble Cut Gin.
Whilst this new dish isn't going to make it on to the menu, we are giving away 10 sides of this amazing Henrys Noble Cut Gin-cured salmon away via a competition.
To enter, upload a picture of your visit to Salmon & Bear, or your own best adventure picture, to Instagram and use the hashtag #gincuredsalmonandbear and #orakingsalmon.
Mark will pick out his favourite photos and the winners will be invited to take away the prizes from our Newtown store. Entries close on 1st July. Winners need to collect their prizes within 7 days.
Huge thanks to Ora King for offering such awesome sides of Salmon as part of the competition prize.
