1 bunch dill, leaves and stalk, chopped
½ cup Murray river salt flakes
1/3 cup white sugar
Grated rind and juice of 2 lemons

Sprinkle 1/4 of the mix on to a large piece of cling wrap, place salmon skin side down over the mixture.

Place salmon in a shallow tray, with a small board or tray on top of salmon parcel and weigh down with a couple of cans of food. Refrigerate for 24 hours.
