In my search for Danish recipes, I came across this website, International Cuisine. Of all the recipes that I found to make cured salmon, this one was by far the most simple and it worked fantastically! So, I am referring you to that website for the recipe and just sharing a bit about what I learned as I made Gravlax, or Cured Salmon for the first time.
Finally, wrap the plastic wrap tightly around your salmon and put the whole thing into the refrigerator for 3 DAYS! That made me really nervous because I didn't want it to go bad. But, all of the recipes required at least 3 days to cure the fish, so I crossed my fingers and did it. I wondered if I would be brave enough to eat it when it finally was all done.
Since many of the recipes called for mustard. I first served mine on a sprouted wheat roll with a layer of mustard and the salmon on top. I was trying to get that smorgasbord feel.
