Trio of salmon

Fish is an integral part of any archipelago menu. This summer, we had primarily salmon: hot-smoked, cured and in soup.

My mother made this amazing gravlax by marinating a salmon fillet (with skin) with coarse salt, sugar and dill and letting it cure for a day in the fridge. We ate it on rye crispbread with salty butter and fried quail eggs.

Did I already mention that my mother makes excellent food?
