You only need a small amount of beer in the curing mix in order to slowly infuse the flavour into the salmon over a couple of days. So plan in advance and you get to drink the rest of the can as a reward!
1. Mix together the lemon & lime zests, coriander seeds, sugar & salt. In a small container rub the curing mix over the salmon fillets. Pour over the porter & refrigerate.
2. Leave to cure for 24-48 hours, turning 2-3 times a day, until firm.
3. Once ready to serve remove from the fridge, rinse under running tap, pat dry and use a very sharp knife to cut lengthways into thin slices.
1. Sift flour into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar.
2. In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, pale ale, egg & butter. Season to taste.
3. Make a well in the centre of the flour, whisk in the milk mixture to make a smooth batter.
4. Heat a large non stick frying pan over a medium heat and brush with the extra butter. Drop heaped tablespoons of batter into pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden.
1. Place the pale ale in a small saucepan over a medium-low heat until reduced to a thick syrup. Remove from heat and allow to cool fully.
2. Mix together the horseradish, crème fraiche & reduced ale syrup. Season to taste.
