Raw salmon?

How do you prepare raw salmon to eat without cooking? In this picture the salmon looks raw. I've bought salmon from sainsburys packaged and sealed but l don't want to cook it.

    The salmon in the picture is probably cold-smoked, which does have a raw appearance and texture, but the smoke will have killed/inactivated bacteria etc. The Japanese eat a lot of raw fish [suchi], but not sure if this includes salmon.

    I don't think you should eat raw food that's why people in china have that virus they are the only people in the world who eat raw food why do you want to anyway it probably tastes like crap

    You can only eat it raw if its sushi grade

    One option is to pasteurize the salmon in a sous vide circulator. Salt the salmon then place it in a bag with no air (I use a vacuum sealer). Wait half an hour, then put in a sous vide circulator bath at 115° for half an hour to 45 minutes, depending on how thick the cut is.. The other way is to use sushi grade salmon and eat it raw.

    There is a way to 'cure' it with lemon and dill, the recipe is called 'Gravadlax', you may find it on 'Google'.

    It needs cooking unless it's smoked salmon.

    Cooking kills the bacteria.

    CB is correct - you could also cure it in gin (,it's amazingly good) but it does take 48hrs.

    Unless the salmon is sushi (shashimi) quality you don't eat it raw with out risking your health. You could make cerviche, the acid from the citrus cures the meat - just look up a recipe on google.

    Honestly wouldnt recommend it. Salmon has been found to harbour bacteria, viruses and parasites. Its safe enough if cooked, but if you eat raw salmon, you run the risk of infection
