Fish Brine

Brine is a highly concentrated saltwater solution that is used for processing, cooking, preserving and seasoning a wide variety of food. Brine isn't just used to preserve and pickle vegetables; it's also used to preserve and pickle cheeses, fruits, meats and fish.

Marinating fish and meat in brine for short periods of time increases flavor, tenderness and shelf life. While this recipe calls for salmon as the brined fish, feel free to use it on any fish of your choice.
