Method

1. Pre-heat oven to 100°C.

3. Blend together the ceviche cure, remove skin off unused fillet ends, and cover with cure in a bowl for 20 minutes.

4. For the dressing: combine all ingredients in a jar, shake well. Set aside to infuse. Remove thyme.

5. For the oyster cream: place oysters into a blender with lemon juice, Sparkling wine and olive oil, blend until smooth. Fold through the crème fraiche, season. Set aside.

6. For the salad: using a mandolin, finely slice rhubarb, cucumber, radishes and fennel. Place in ice water. Place in a bowl with torn parsley, mint and chives. Set aside. Lightly dress with dressing prior
to serving.

7. Remove salmon from ceviche cure, rinse lightly with cold water, dry and slice.   

8. Place fillet gently onto a serving platter. Serve with ceviche, salad and oyster cream. Garnish with micro parsley.
