Add the rye and reduce the heat to medium. Cook the rye until it is tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Drain in a sieve, rinse under cold running water, and let cool. Meanwhile, fill a skillet halfway with water and bring to the boil over medium heat. Add the salmon and place the herbs on top. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, until the salmon is rosy pink when flaked in the center. Using a slotted spatula, transfer to paper towels to drain. While the salmon is cooking, bring the vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan. Put the cucumber in a small bowl, sprinkle with salt, and pour in the hot vinegar. Set aside for 5 minutes, then drain. Mix with the drained rye and parsley in a medium bowl. Place the salmon on a dinner plate, top with the cucumber mixture, and serve with the egg alongside.
