How to Prepare Gravlax
Cold-cured with sugar, salt, and fresh dill, gravlax has a fresh, delicate flavor and is delicious served either as an elegant appetizer or as an unbeatable topping for smørrebrød, Denmark's open-faced sandwiches.

Prepare the Salmon
Rinse the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Examine the fish for small, opaque pin bones, feeling down along the middle line and along the outer edges of the fillet. Remove any bones with tweezers or needle-nosed pliers. Cut the fillet into two equal halves.

Season the Fillets
Season the salmon fillets with sugar and salt mixture.

Now for the Dill
Wash and roughly chop the bunches of dill, stems and all. Sprinkle the flesh side of each fillet half with the dill seeds and ground pepper. Then, place one fillet half, flesh side up, in a dish just large enough to hold it. Place the chopped dill on top of this fillet, then cover with the second half, flesh side down. Cover the dish lightly with plastic wrap and let marinate at room temperature until the sugar-salt mixture has melted into the fillet.

Weight Down the Gravlax
Place a small pan or plate on top of the plastic wrap-covered gravlax. Weight the plate lightly, using a few rocks or canned items. Refrigerate the weighted gravlax for at least 2 days (48 hours) and up to a week. Every 12 hours, turn the fish “sandwich” over in the brining liquid that has accumulated in the bottom of the pan.

After Curing for Two Days
Remove the gravlax from the refrigerator. Scrape off most of the dill and seasonings; pat dry with paper towels. As a reminder: if you are not using a) sushi-grade fish or b) commercially frozen fish, this is the point where you will need to wrap the gravlax well and place it in a -10º F (-23º C) freezer for 7 days.

Slice the Gravlax
Using a sharp knife, cut the cured gravlax into paper-thin slices, pulling each slice away from the skin (if your fillet has the skin on).

Serve the Gravlax
Layer the gravlax slices on crispbread or rye bread. Traditionally accompanied by sweet dill mustard sauce, gravlax also pairs well with capers and finely chopped onions as an appetizer or with a variety of garnishes on an open-faced sandwich. Gravlax can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week and in the freezer for up to a month.
