Gravlax (cured salmon) is a traditional Norwegian dish made by curing Salmon with salt, sugar & dill. The Norwegians typically served it as an appetizer.
It is similar to the Jewish ‘Lox’ that is served on bagels as a very tasty sandwich.
PREPARING THE SALMON.
- Mix all of the spices in a large freezer bag.
- Wash & pat dry the salmon filet & place in the bag.
- After this time has passed, remove the salmon from the refigerator & carefully drain off the liquid. Put it back in the fridge for another day & repeat the process.
- You can eat it after two days, but I like to go for three. You can do it up to five, but I don't let it go that long.
To serve; slice thinly with the grain & at an angle to get bigger pieces.
You can eat the skin, but I like to leave it off when I'm slicing.
Put this on a toasted bagel with, cream cheese, sliced tomato, pickled onions & capers for an amazing sandwich. Much thanks to the Jewish community for creating this amazing sandwich.
