BSK’s Home-Cured Gravlox

October 6th, 2019 § 0 comments

Russ & Daughters, the venerable, wonderful “appetizing” shop on New York’s lower east side, sells gravlox (or gravlax) for $42 a pound. Though HG/BSK and family always order smoked fish treats from R & D for festive holiday meals, they never order gravlox (which is probably splendid). For the uninitiated, gravlox is raw salmon, cured in salt and sugar and covered in dill. The fish is weighted down with bricks or other heavy objects and cured for a day or so in the refrigerator. Sliced paper-thin, and served with a mustard, honey (or sugar), chopped dill sauce, it is a great way to start a meal (naughty HG accompanies it with vodka on the rocks). Here on Prince Edward Island, BSK makes perfect gravlox using farm-raised salmon from Nova Scotia. BSK’s dill sauce is the best. And, the cost is about eight dollars a pound, more than enough for a number of meals. Thrifty (and talented) BSK rules.
