Salt-Grilled Salmon
How to make old-fashioned salted salmon is to put salmon directly with a large amount of salt into the storage tank, and then it will be a weight in stone for maturation.

The old-fashioned style takes a long time (cost) , so now they are mainly made by one of two production methods.
–  Dipping the salmon in salt water    定塩製法
–  Injecting salt water into the salmon  インジェクション製法
Or a mixed method of the above.

Production of these methods are called “Ama-Jio-Jake” 甘塩鮭 literally “sweet salt salmon”.
