How to make it

  • Scale the salmon and remove the small bones, but leave the skin on. Make a few cuts in the skin for the marinade to penetrate.
  • Mix salt, sugar, pepper and sprinkle it underneath and on top of the salmon filet together with plenty of dill.
  • Place a weighted cutting board on top of the salmon filet and let it marinate at room temperature for 2–4 hours. Then refrigerate for 24−48 hours, turning the salmon filet a few times.
  • Rinse the salmon in cold water. Cut into very thin slices at a slant/ angle without getting too close to the skin, so the dark salmon is included.
  • ***
  • Gravlax sauce: mix the mustard, sugar and vinegar and season with salt and fresh-ground pepper. Stir vigorously, while pouring on the oil in a steady, thin stream. When the sauce has attained a mayonnaise-like consistency, stir in the chopped dill.
  • ***
  • Serve with lemon wedges and dark rye bread.
