Fresh salmon is readily available in Finland. However, in other words, the only thing that is easy to eat is salmon. To change the taste a bit, I made this pickled salmon.
I always buy whole salmon, and make sashimi and make this zuke. You can also buy whole salmon fillets. However, they cost about three times as much as whole salmon.
There are many ways to enjoy zuke: as sushi with sushi rice, as zuke don on rice, or as sashimi. Juhani says that he prefers zuke to regular sashimi.
