It’s Christmastime in North Carolina and Sonny #2 is coming home for a visit. So mama started cooking this week to make all of his favorite dishes while he’s here.
My son loves all things salmon. Skin, roe, sushi, lox, and smoked. He also loves to eat gravlax. So naturally, I made him some! Gravlax is an easy cure of salmon with salt, sugar, pepper and usually dill. I switched it up a little this time and used some smoked coarse salt in the curing process.
The color and flavor are delightful! Soft and buttery smooth, it is great served with a mustard dill sauce on crostini, crackers, etc.
