My Sister Rachael's Gravlax

Another family favourite and so Easy!

Every Christmas for several years Rachael would bring this delicious Gravlax to our house for Christmas eve. Whatever was leftover we would eat the next day for brunch with a crisp white wine or a glass of bubbly.

8 ounce piece of Salmon
1 cup salt
1 cup of white sugar
1 shot of vodka or tequila
fresh dill
fresh lemon

In a serving dish large enough to hold the salmon, make a L shape with two pieces of plastic wrap.

Place your piece of salmon in the middle. Mix the salt and sugar and pour over the salmon. Next add the shot of Vodka and squeeze the lemon juice right on top. Cover with fresh dill. Wrap tightly with the plastic wrap and refrigerate 12-24 hours. the longer the better.

To serve remove the salmon from the plastic wrap and rinse thoroughly with water.

Slice into thin slices and place on a serving platter.

Serve with crackers, baguette toast or rye toasts, capers, dill, red onion, sliced lemons, spring onions and sour cream.
