beetroot cured salmon

Local cafe does an amazing pan fried beetroot and vodka cured salmon. I’m going to try to approximate it at home, starting with this recipe that I will modify a bit and pan fry.
Beetroot and Vodka Cured salmon

Update: the spices were delicious, but it was a bit salty, which in hindsight made sense as I was pan frying and not curing like gravlax.  I think I will try again, but cut back the salt and sugar a lot, and maybe try one of the juniper berry versions.

Update: tried again with only 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon sugar and fresh ginger to substitute for fresh horseradish.  It was well received by our lunch guest and we could certainly make it again.  Served with a cucumber and green apple salad and roasted root veg, it was a great meal.
