Gravlax is cured, unlike lox it is not smoked so no fancy equipment needed. The ingredients used in the Raskin’s gravlax kit cure the fish; you only have to turn your fillet over for the next few days to get the whole fish covered with the curing ingredients and voila. The magic happens on its own.

And a no fuss dish is definitely on top of our list these days….

Make sure to specify to your Raskin’s fish specialist that you will be using the salmon for a curing technique as the grade of the fish plays an important role in the success of this recipe.

Gravlax can also be served as an appetizer thinly sliced on bread or crackers.

We keep our fish skin on as it makes it slicing easier.
