easy gravlax

Do you like gravlax? I do.

I recently saw this post on Deb's blog.

The recipe is super easy and fast, which is why I wanted to try it. I think if you make traditional gravlax it takes several days.

I roasted a red pepper, some kabocha (pumpkin), an onion, and some sweet potato to make a warm salad. I also added some lettuce on the bottom.

After the salmon was marinated, I added some dried dill, dried tarragon and fresh parsley. Deb uses fresh herbs, but I only had fresh parsley.

For the dressing, I used the vanilla vinaigrette.

It was a great combination and I loved the flavors.

So far this week we've had this for dinner two times, once with the veggies mentioned above and the second time with different roasted veggies (eggplant, red pepper, sweet potato and carrot). Thanks for sharing a great recipe Deb, if I could get my hands on some guava puree, I would try those bellinis too!

Hi Kat - Wow, that's an interesting recipe. When I make gravlax it does take at least 2 days to cure, and it's always such a big slab of salmon! Same with the version of miso gravlax..... probably why I don't make it anymore.

Thanks Kirkk, it is really fast and easy, I hope you try it. Miso gravlax sounds delicious :)

Take care.
