What is Gravlax?
The classical beetroot-colored salmon is called Gravlax and sometimes Gravadlax, traditionally a Scandinavian method of preserving fish through marinating. The conventional method includes the application of cure mixture by hand, which gives vivid color to the salmon. The classical recipe includes just four fish (salmon, of course), salt and sugar, and beetroot juice. The fish is not smoked, and it is just marinated in Gravlax. The word ‘Gravlax’ comes from ‘Grave’ and signifies that the fish should be kept buried under some pressure while resting time in the fridge.
What is Lox?
Lox is an old-school method of preserving fish. The belly lox of the salmon is salt-cured but never smoked.
Is Marinated Salmon different from Cold-Smoked Salmon?
Cold smoked salmon is wet or dry brined with sugar and salt. Then it is smoked under 80 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 10 to 15 hours. This is a technical method that requires burning wood at quite a distance from where the salmon is. There are different varieties of cold-smoked salmon such as Nova, Norwegian salmon, Scottish salmon, Irish salmon, and Western Nova.
Nova is often referred to as a cold-smoked salmon that comes from Nova Scotia. Western Nova is cold smoked Pacific salmon. Marinated salmon is not smoked at any stage and is just the same as cured salmon.
How to Preserve Beetroot Marinated Fish?
You can preserve the beetroot marinated fish for up to fourteen days in the refrigerator and three months in the freezer.
How can you serve Beetroot marinated salmon?
Thinly cut slices of salmon are more flavorful and look good when served. The lunch can be served with poached eggs, spinach and tomato salad, and sourdough bread and mustard sauce is also a great accompaniment to the beetroot marinated salmon. You can also enjoy it as a luxurious breakfast with scrambled eggs with rye-bread.
What is the benefit of making marinated salmon at home?
Homemade beetroot marinated or cured salmon allows better control over your ingredients. You can take the best quality, freshest salmon available to you and make this recipe. Another benefit is that you have control over the amount of salt and sugar so that the salty flavor does not overpower the original flavors of the salmon. Making any food at home from scratch ensures that the food is free from harmful additives.
Is it safe to eat marinated salmon?
Salmon, particularly when intended for marinating or curing purposes, must be bought in frozen form. According to microbiologists, Salmon is vulnerable to worm infestation, and therefore it possesses a health hazard when consumed raw. Though marinating with salt and sugar kills most microorganisms, only freezing can assure that the parasites are killed. Ideally, the salmon should be kept in the freezer for at least five to seven days before marinating it.
