If you aren’t familiar with gravlax, it’s salmon that is cured with a mixture of salt and sugar and left with either dill or spruce on the top during the process. Sometimes is cold smoked as well.

It’s very similar to lox. But there is a difference. Gravlax is cured in herbs, sugar and salt and lox are cured in salt. Lox uses only the tender belly, but gravlax uses various cuts of the salmon. Gravlax have a mildly fish taste where lox are mostly salty. Both are delicious!!

Just three ingredients and some herbs –

  • You can use plain chevre cheese can  instead of chevre with honey. If you use plain, mix it with a drop of two of honey, then roll and slice.
  • Can’t find gravlax? Use lox and add just a few chopped dill fronds with the chives.
