This looks fantastic! I'm going to make this for a party. When do you freeze it (I'll make extra for later)...before it's sliced and after the 3-day curing process?


That looks great! I make some every Christmas too. You can also try sprinkling ground fennel then the dill on top. In Denmark, they top it with a sweet mustard dill sauce (can be found at Ikea)and serve it on Danish whole kernel rye bread (can be found at Trader Joe's).


Oooh I love this stuff! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'm going to make a batch as soon as I recover from having #2!

I have never tried making my own gravlax, but this looks like the toughest part is in the waiting! I need to try this myself when they have wild salmon at the Costco!


If your mom wants to spend some time in SF, just send her my way! YUM! It's clear where you get your love of cooking.

Hey, I have a whole wild salmon sitting in the freezer just screaming for the gravlax recipe. Just gotta try this. Great blog thanks for sharing.

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
