I saw Ina's episode of Barefoot Contessa where she made Gravlax with Mustard Sauce quite a while ago. I decided that I really wanted to try to make it myself. Gravlax is a Scandinavian style of preparing fish. The fish is cured for three days in its own juices, salt, sugar, pepper, fennel, and dill. Not being a difficult dish to make, I decided to try it. This post will take a couple of days - I will add to the post each day that I check my salmon. More to come tomorrow! See ya then!!
Put a smaller pan over the salmon and weight with heavy cans
Place other piece of salmon over the first, skin side up
Step 3 - Put seasoning evenly over salmon and dill
Put a large bunch of dill over salmon
Take one 3 pound piece of salmon and cut in half. Put on half in deep pan skin side down
