Gralax

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I been making Gralax for some time, Salmon, salt, sugar, capers and dill, let it cure for 3-4 days, slice thin and serve with cream cheese. My guest love it. Now I want  to add another level of flavor without changing the texture(too much). Now,you think I could smoke it for short time at 180 for that smoke flavor or such I just use heavy smoked salt in the curing process. Thank you

If you have the capability to cold smoke it, that works well without changing the texture. Any heat above 80°-100° will change the texture. I've done cold smoked gravlax several times and it's always a crowd pleaser.

Here is some cold smoked gravlax with dill I did a while back.

That's the recipe I followed. It's the best one I've ever used. Only change I ever made was to wrap in plastic and put it back in the fridge for a day or two after forming the pellicle. It happened by accident but it was a good thing. It made the texture much more velvety.

Though I've done Gravlax, my favorite is smoked lox.   Here's a link to my most recent smoke:
