I got a little over-zealous at the store yesterday when I discovered an entire side of salmon- 1+ kg, for half price!
…But what do you do when you are one person, and you have a kilogram (nearly 2.5 lbs) of salmon that is going to go bad very shortly??
I’ve been wanting to make traditional home-cured “gravlax” (lox) for a while now, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Watch a couple of videos to get the idea, and then have at it!
Mine’s got salt, sugar, tamari, lemon, dill, pepper, and fresh ginger. It’ll “be happy” in that for 2-3 days and then, hopefully be beyond delicious…
I’ll let you know!
