Fennel Pollen Cured Salmon

So Instacart delivered 5 bunches of bananas instead of one bunch of 5, and forgot the fresh dill? No worries if you have fennel pollen on hand. Fennel pollen is one of those chefs' secrets. It’s expensive, packs a flavor wallop, lasts a long time and a little goes a very long way! You can use it on vegetables; cooked and raw, as a dry marinade for chicken and beef, sprinkled into pasta sauce, to enhance ground pork sausages & stuffings and I particularly like the way it pairs with roasted tomatoes. This recipe is for cured salmon, and most of the work is hands off.
