Re: Salmon Gravlax with beets

This isn't from a magazine, but the recent Jamie Does Stockholm - will be doing it this coming weekend for bbq party...

Amounts are for 1 large side of salmon, filleted and pin-boned.
Lay salmon fillet out on clingfilm and sprinkle evenly with:

8 tbsp sea salt
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp grated fresh horseradish (jar will work but not creamed)
2/3 med beetroots, grated
2 shots schnapps
5 tbsp chopped dill
Grated zest of 1 lemon

Wrap tightly in clingfilm and weigh down with bricks wrapped in foil/mineral water bottles/whatever and refrigerate for 48 hours.

Remove clingfilm and scrape curing mix from the flesh, then pat dry with kitchen towel.

Run a sharp knife between skin and flesh to de-skin then slice thinly. Serve with:

8 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
good grind of black pepper
good pinch of grated lemon zest
squeeze lemon juice
2 tbsp chopped dill

Hope this fits the bill - i'm really looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

Re: Salmon Gravlax with beets

Watched this on TV last night and was thinking I should record it. I thought I would just look up the recipe on-line but didn't have much success. The recipes above give me some clues though.

Down to the market early this morning and got the salmon. Off to the kitchen now to have a go. yummy
