Gravlax with Mustard Sauce

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

Hey! When do we get to see the rest of this process? :-)

Thanks for reminding me. We made gravlax once when Mr. KC caught a big spring salmon. We used a 6 pack of cokes to weigh it down.

It didn't work out too well for me this time, but I am going to try again next time I get a big piece of salmon.
