  1. Step 1

    Put the salt, sugar, peppercorns, orange zest, Campari, gin and vermouth in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Step 2

    Lay out three pieces of clingfilm overlapping each other, wider and longer than the salmon. Spread half the salt mixture along the middle of the clingfilm. Put the fish on top, skin-side down, and cover with the remaining salt, ensuring no salmon is visible. Wrap with the overhanging clingfilm, transfer to a baking tray and put a heavier tray or board on top. Chill in the fridge for 48 hrs, turning the fish over after 24 hrs so the timing is evenly spaced.
  3. Step 3

    Toast the fennel seeds in a small frying pan over a medium heat for 2-3 mins or until fragrant. Finely grind using a pestle and mortar, then combine with the soured cream and chill in a bowl.
  4. Step 4

    Remove the salmon from the fridge, unwrap and rinse briefly to completely remove the salt mixture. Pat dry and put on a serving board. Arrange the blood orange slices down the middle to garnish. When ready to serve, thinly slice the salmon away from the skin and serve with soured cream, parsley and blinis.
