How To Make Gravlax

Gravlax is a dish that originated from Nordic countries. This recipe highlights the curing of salmon using salt and dill for a few days. This tradition is the best way of curing salmon. Historically, this dish was mainly prepared by fishermen. They do this by putting salt on the salmon and fermenting it lightly through burying it in the sand just above the line where the high tide comes in. However, as years passed by, fermentation is not used in the process of curing the salmon.

Cured salmon is mainly served as an appetizer. It is thinly sliced and usually paired with mustard sauce, freshly boiled potatoes, lemon wedges, or crostini.
