Cauliflower & ginger waffle - salmon & crispy greens

Updated: May 20, 2020

Waffle diet continues, the savory waffles are making their entry on my blog and here is the second recipe so far.

More will come, thanks to all the instagram story suggestions you have made.

I'm craving sushi at the moment, however I am on the waffle diet - so the waffle iron must be in use at all times, also I had half a cauliflower in the fridge. Everything worked out perfectly.

Friday I had a delivery of fresh fish from Fiskerikajen, my local fishmonger.

Inside the box was a big piece of salmon, and I decided to cure it with salt, in order to eat it cold - japanese style. ( "yeah yeah - where is the waffle recipe" ? - scroll past the fishy part!)

Cured salmon


1 piece fresh salmon


Step 1

split the salmon lengthwise, skin on.

Step 2

Sprinkle generously with salt (if you can eat sugar do a 1:1 mixture of sugar and salt)

Step 3

Cover and leave in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Step 4

Slice and eat og freeze and use at a later time.

And now you're thinking either

"I DIDN'T GET ANY FRESH SALMON" or "whatever! it's too time consuming"

Then no need to worry, you can use cold smoked salmon from the supermarked or fishmonger.

Ok, so now you have either made cured salmon or bought some smoked salmon and you're ready to get down to the waffle business.
