Gravlax (Salmon Marinated In Dill) - Mshol Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

3 lb fresh salmon fillet, center cut, cleaned & sca
1 large bunch dill, fresh, whole
1/4 cup kosher salt (coarse, or regular is, necessary)
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp white peppercorns (or black) crushe, d

Recipe Preparation

Cut the salmon in half lengthwise and remove the backbone and the
small, freebones, as well, or ask your fish dealer to do it for you.
Leave the skin on.

Place half of the fish, skin side down, in a deep glass, enamel or
stainless steel baking dish or casserole. Wash and then shake dry the
bunch of dill and place it on the fish. (If the dill is of the
hothouse variety and not very pungent, chop the herb coarsely to
release it's flavor and sprinkle it over the fish instead.) In a
separate bowl, combine the salt, sugar and crushed peppercorns.
Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the dill. Top with the other half
of the fish, skin side up. Cover with foil and set a heavy plate or
platter on top of it, slightly larger than the salmon. Weigh it down
with cans or jars and refrigerate for at least 3 days, up to 7 days.
Turn the fish over every 12 hours or so, basting with the liquid
marinade that accumulates, separating the halves a little to baste
the salmon inside. Replace the platter and weights each time.

When the gravlax is finished, remove the fish from it's marinade you
can scrape away the dill and seasonings and pat dry with paper
towels, or leave the dill and seasonings in place. Place the
separated halves skin side down on a carving board and slice the
salmon thinly on the diagonal, detaching each slice from the skin.

Gravlax is served as part of a smorgasbord or as an appetizer and is
usually accompanied by a mustard-dill sauce (see recipe). When
gravlax is presented as a main course, it is garnished with lemon
wedges as well as the mustard-dill sauce and served with toast and
perhaps a cucumber salad.

.\\\\ichele's Notes: This is one of the easiest recipes to make. Long
as you start it in advance it's basically a no-brainer. Just remember
to turn and baste every 12 hours. And slice thin. Mmmmmmm, its great!

Food Tips of the Week

Diet tips

At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
The problems associated with low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe for you?
Cutting out carbohydrates might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy foods which must be part of any well-balanced diet, particularly those that we get from vegetables, grains and fruits.
Even though there is considerable evidence that suggests that low carbohydrate diets can help eliminate fat, some of this some anecdotal evidence has resulted in arguments between nutrition gurus, and their safety has been challenged
Foods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes citrus fruits, cabbage, scarlet runner bean and basil)

The nutrients called 'flavonoids' discovered in these fruit, vegetables and pulses are thought to have properties in preventing cancer.
Doctors researching the properties of flavonoids believe they also have most other health benefits, amongst them, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
The majority of these are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your diet system.
