Rinse the salmon under cold running water and pat dry with a paper towel.
In a small bowl, mix the salt, sugar, and pepper together. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture all over the salmon on both sides until well covered.
Place the salmon skin-side down in a sheet of aluminum foil or plastic wrap and wrap it tightly.
Transfer the salmon packet to a container and refrigerate for 36 or up to 72 hours (see the notes above), turning the salmon packet over after 12 hours.
