Here is our family Gravlax recipe we make each fall when the steelhead salmon are running up stream near our home. This is a very simple recipe for home cured salmon.
On 2 plastic wrap sheets lay the fillets, skin side down, side by side and sprinkle with the vodka. (Vodka is optional but traditional.)
Turn every day for three days. Drain off the liquid each day when turning. On the third day unwrap and rinse off the dill and salt cure.
When ready to serve slice thinly on a bias.
Serve with pumpernickel bread, cream cheese,capers and chopped red onions.
