This sounds delicious! I’ve been on a pescatarian diet at the moment and salmon recipes are my go to at the moment. I did want to about a few of your ingredients, which I can’t seem to find in any of my local grocery stores: caster sugar, yellow and chiogga beets, and cider vinegar. Are there any substitute to these that are more easily accessible? If not, what recipe modifications do I need to make so that the flavor is not off?
Thanks for such a great recipe! Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for commenting on my recipe Emilie. The ingredients are rather basic but they might be called differently in your part of the world. If you ask your grocer he / she might be able to point you in the right direction, or suggest a substitute which could lead to an even more yummy dish that you could share with us here.
Bon appétit! 😋
