Beet-Cured Salmon Gravlax

Posted on



Ingredients for 6 to 10 ounces of Gravlax:


8 to 12 ounce tail section of fresh salmon with skin on (scaled)


1/4 cup kosher salt


1/4 cup white sugar


cayenne and/or freshly ground black pepper to taste


enough grated beet and/or fresh dill springs to thickly cover fish
– Press with something heavy, and let cure in fridge for 1 1/2 days, or until salmon is firm, and translucent when sliced. You can carefully unwrap, and poke to test, and then rewrap, and let cure longer if need be.

happy cooking.
