Method

  • 1.

    Grav Lox Club Sandwiches:

  • 2.

    Stack 3 slices of bread on your work surface.

  • 3.

    Open the first slice and spread a thin layer of yogurt cheese on the inside of that slice and the top of the second slice.

  • 4.

    Sprinkle ½ tablespoon of capers on the middle slice, lay 2 pieces of grav lox over top, followed by 2 slices of tomato, red onion and finish with a few pieces of arugula.

  • 5.

    Lay the single slice of bread on top of the stack and open the top 2 slices.

  • 6.

    Repeat the process with all of the ingredients. Slice the sandwich into 4 triangles and enjoy!

  • 7.

    Grav Lox:

  • 8.

    Score the skin of the salmon in 3 places along the length of the fish with a sharp knife.

  • 9.

    Mix the sea salt, honey, citrus zests and spices in a bowl.

  • 10.

    Place a roasting rack in a baking dish. Cover the roasting rack with 1 bunch of dill.

  • 11.

    Sprinkle half of the curing mixture over the dill and lay the salmon over top, right side up.

  • 12.

    Sprinkle the rest of the curing mixture on top of the salmon and cover with the rest of the dill.

  • 13.

    Place a piece of parchment paper over the salmon and a baking tray on top of the parchment.

  • 14.

    Place large cans or bottles on top to press the salmon and allow it to cure for approximately 24 hours.

  • 15.

    When the salmon is cured (it has a firmer texture than does raw), rinse the excess cure off and slice the salmon using a sharp knife.

  • 16.

    Yoghurt Cheese:

  • 17.

    Place the cheese cloth in a colander so it lines the entire bowl.

  • 18.

    Place the colander over a bowl or plate to collect the liquid.

  • 19.

    Pour the yogurt into the cheese cloth and let drain for 8--12 hours.
