Discover how satisfying and easy it is to make gravlax, and you’ll want to do it again and again. This rendition is flavored with the traditional lemon and dill, but you can get as inventive as you want with the flavorings so long as you keep the salt amount the same. You can even use more sugar, if you like.

Make Ahead Tips
Well-wrapped gravlax will keep in the refrigerator for about 5 days.
Bed,Bath & Beyond carries cheesecloth. I love gravlax but am worried about parasites in salmon. I've heard that you should freeze it briefly first to kill any possible parasites encysted in the flesh. Does anybody have any information about this and how negatively does it affect texture& flavor? I understand this is a common practice @ sushi bars.
This recipe is so simple and produces consistent results that people rave about. I would only use wild caught salmon of course. The hardest part is finding cheesecloth @ your local market.
