How long should I cure fish?

Asked: Jeff Van Remortel, Last Updated:

Turn the fish over about once every eight hours. The curing time depends on the size of fish and the finished texture you desire. The fish will visibly shrink as it releases liquid, resulting in a firmer texture and glossy flesh. For larger portions, somewhere between 24 and 48 hours is ideal.
