- Rinse the salmon under cold water. Pat very dry with paper towels.
- Cut the salmon into ½-inch (1.5 cm) cubes. In a bowl, combine the maple sugar, salt and white pepper. Add the salmon and gently mix to coat in the sugar mixture. Let marinate for 2 hours in the refrigerator.
- Pat the salmon dry, as needed. Place in a plate and serve with toothpicks as an hors d’oeuvre.
