Gravlax (Marinated Salmon) with Bache-Gabrielsen Cognac

16 December 2011 3 Comments

Gravlax is used at most restaurants and Hotels all over Norway and around Europe. It can be used as an Appetizer or as a main course. Fresh salmon fillets are easy to find in grocery stores or fish market.
There are, of course, many different ways to make it, but here is one I have used for many years.


• Buy two sides of Salmon fillets, 2- 3 lbs ea.
• Make sure they are boneless, if not; use a twister to remove the bones in the middle of the
• Mix together in a bowl: 1 cup sugar, 1 cup of salt and a 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper.
• Buy a large bunch of Dill, wash it thoroughly, and dry it off on a paper towel. Then chop the dill.
• Dry Dill can also be used, but fresh is so much better. Clean the fillets with paper towels.
• Sprinkle some Dill on the bottom first then lay the first fillet skin dawn on a long platter
• Rub the fillets with the mix and sprinkle half of the dill on the top. Then you sprinkle Bache-
cognac over the fillet. Repeat this with the second fillet, Use approximately 1 and
1/2 to 2 oz on ea fillets
• The thick part of the fillet should cover the thin part, with the second fillet skin up.
• Sprinkle the rest of the mix and dill over top.
• Put little pressure on top, and put it in your refrigerator. Turned the fillets every 12 hours, so
they marinate evenly.
• After 3 days they are ready to enjoy. Can be served sliced with a mustard sauce and French
bread, or as a dish, you can serve it sliced with a good potato salad, and Mustard sauce.

    I seldom leave a response, but i did a few
    searching and wound up here Gravlax (Marinated Salmon) with Bache-Gabrielsen Cognac.
    And I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
    Is it only me or does it give the impression like some of these remarks
    come across as if they are coming from brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I’d like to follow anything
    new you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete
    urls of all your community sites like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?
