Just had to cover all bases in the title there. ;) Swedish: Gravlax, Norwegian: Gravlaks. Grav means pit/hole/grave + lax/laks means salmon in the respective languages above. Frankly, I don’t eat salmon, but my husband loves this dish. Make sure you flip the package in the fridge every 12 hours to evenly marinate the salmon. The yield here varies wildly depending on how much each person eats and how it’s served (I’ve specified appetizers), so please keep that in mind. “Cook” time is marination.
