Graved lox is a yummy salmon appetizer. With a few simple steps, you can make your own and for a fraction of the price!
I have just started up my new blog Bloggie Stylish
where you can find all kinds of neat tutorials, like this one.
Step 1: Ingredients
There isn't too much to the recipe. You will need:
1 large fillet of salmon (I got 2 smaller pieces, since that was all that the fish market had)
1 Cup Kosher Salt (it MUST be kosher salt!!)
2 Cups Sugar
A bunch of dill
Cracked Pepper Corns
Step 2: Mixing The Sugar & Salt
In a large mixing bowl, add the sugar & kosher salt. Use your hands to combine the ingredients well & set aside.
Step 3: Preparing The Dill
Wash a small handfull of dill under the tap. Then seperate the little bunches of dill from the main stalk. Grab a few of the little bunches between your thunb and fore finger and pull the dill leaves off of the stalks. Now chop the dill finely until you have a good half of a cup.
Step 4: Laying Out the Saran Wrap
Lay out a generous length of saran wrap over a cookie sheet. Sprinkle a moderate amount of the salt/sugar mix and dill on the plastic wrap. Now lay the salmon fillet, skin side down, on the salt/sugar mix.
Step 5: Adding the Salt and Sugar Mix
Sprinkle a generous amount of the salt/sugar mix over the fillet, covering it totally. Now grind a light covering of pepper over the salmon fillet.
Step 6: Adding The Dill
Sprinkle a generous amount of dill over the fillet. Now add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of whiskey over the salmon, covering the fillet as evenly as possible.
Step 7: Wrapping The Salmon
Wrap the fish tightly in the Saran wrap.
