Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the fennel in half and remove the core. In a small mixing bowl, toss the fennel with the oil, salt and pepper. Place in a small roasting pan and roast until golden brown, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove and cool. Using a sharp knife, thinly slice the fennel. Pat the grapefruit dry with paper towels. In a shallow dish, toss the grapefruit with the sugar. Heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the grapefruit and cook until the grapefruit is caramelized, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and set aside. In a mixing bowl, toss the arugula and fennel with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the caramelized grapefruit and toss well. Fan out the cured salmon in the center of each plate. Mound some of the salad in the center of each plate of salmon. Drizzle the gastrique over the entire plate. Garnish with parsley.
In a mixing bowl, combine the salt, dill, zest s, vodka and sugar together. Place the salmon, skin side down, on several large sheets of plastic wrap. Cover the entire salmon with the curing mixture, packing the cure into the salmon. Wrap the salmon completely and tightly in the plastic wrap and place the salmon, skin side down on a half sheet pan. Place something heavy, like a skillet, weights or a brick (which needs to be wrapped in plastic wrap) on top of the wrapped salmon. This will help infuse the salmon into the mixture. Refrigerate the salmon for 24 hours.
Remove the salmon from the refrigerator and wipe off the salt mixture. Rinse the salmon under cold water, removing all of the cure. Using a sharp knife, slice the salmon diagonally, paper thin and set aside.
