FOOD & WINE Wine Club Grilled Salmon Gravlax FOOD & WINE Wine Club Grilled Salmon Gravlax
Portland, Oregon’s Viking Soul Food truck serves this aquavit-cured salmon with lefse, a Norwegian flatbread made from potatoes.
Servings: 6
Active Time:
Total Time: 25 minutes plus 36 hours curing
One 2 1/2-pound whole salmon fillet, with skin
3 tablespoons aquavit
2 1/2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
Vegetable oil, for rubbing
Horseradish mayonnaise and radish salad, for serving
1. Set the salmon skin side down on a large rimmed baking sheet and rub with the aquavit. Let stand for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, salt, coriander and cardamom. Rub the sugar mixture all over the salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 36 hours.

2. Light a grill or heat a grill pan. Pat the salmon dry and cut it into 6 portions. Rub the salmon skin and the grill with oil. Grill the fish, skin side down, over moderately high heat until the skin is crisp, about 1 minute. Cover the grill and cook the fish over moderate heat until rare within, about 6 minutes. Serve hot or chilled, with horseradish mayonnaise and a radish salad on the side. —Jeremy Daniels
