Salmon Gravlax

Once cured, the salmon can be refrigerated for a week or two or tightly wrapped and frozen. Use it on salads, benedicts or as a great appetizer with some mustard sauce and crackers. If you have ever purchased "lox-style" or gravlax salmon, you will appreciate how thinly it is sliced before packaging. Commercial processors use a multi-bladed instrument to do the slicing. Don't feel bad if your home version is a little rough around the edges.
