Gravlax (salted salmon)
This is a Scandinavian recipe for raw salmon. Great appetizer for the holidays, you can serve with vodka, dry white wine, or aquavit (a traditional Scandinavian spirit). For this recipe I like to use lemon salt. If you don’t have fresh dill you can use dry dill to marinate the fish. Serve plain or on top of rye bread, crackers, or the most traditional way, knackebrod.

Cover with other half of the fish, skin up. Cover tightly with foil on top and put the fish in the refrigerator for 2-3 days with a press on top.
