Making the Gravlax

I’ve never tried to make Gravlax before, but it seemed like it might be a fun project and tasty too.  I think it will be ready for supper on Christmas with all of the relatives.  I hope they’ll enjoy it.

  • 1 pound fresh salmon fillet
  • 1/8 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 bunch fresh dill
  1. Pat the salmon fillet dry and remove pin bones – mine strangely had none. Cut it into two parts of equal size.
  2. mix together the sugar and salt.
  3. sprinkle mix on each fillet and cover each with the dill fronds.  
  4. Add extra mixture and filp one fillet on to the other so the flesh-sides are together. Spread the rest of the mixture on both sides of the skin.
  5. I wrapped mine in parchment before the saran wrap to keep the plastic off of the fish.  It is now in the refrigerator under a couple of soda cans and I will be flipping it every 12 hours or so.
