Serves 4 persons

  • ½ salmon tail of ½ kg
  • ½ litre of good quality white wine vinegar
  • Salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Chopped parsley


After eliminating the fat from the side of the salmon tail, finely slice the salmon horizontally along table line (If you do not have the table dimension, you can ask the fishmongers to cut the salmon in horizontal slices).

Arrange the slices in an ovenproof glass tray and pour a little vinegar and salt over each level, being sure to properly cover the salmon with the vinegar before composing the next layer.

In the end, the salmon must be completely covered with the vinegar. Move the slices of salmon with the use of a fork so that you remove all the trapped air. Leave to marinate for at least 24 hours.

When the slices are cloudy, drain and layer them in a tray. Add an abundance of extra virgin olive oil until the slices are covered and add chopped parsley. Marinate for another 6 hours. The salmon is then ready to serve.
