Recipe Signé Local: Salmon gravlax with La Pincée spices

Recette Signé Local: Gravlax de saumon aux épices La Pincée

If there's one food I love in this world, it's salmon! I honestly believe I could eat it every day of my life. Cooked on the grill, in the oven with a garnish of pesto, in Tartare, in mousse, smoked or even in Gravlax, I love salmon in all its forms.

When I saw that the company La Pincée was offering a spice seasoning to Gravlax, I said to myself: "This is my chance!"

So I went to the local fishmonger and tried the recipe for Gravlax version La Pincée for my taste pleasure and yours (because you'll want to try it soon, I'm sure).

What's great about this product is that it's all there, put together in a glass jar so the fish takes on a delicate, rich taste.

The dry marinade for Gravlax La Pincée is made with sea salt, Guérande salt, raw cane sugar, freshly roasted and ground spices and black pepper.

Salmon gravlax with La Pincée spices

To make the Gravlax, nothing could be simpler:

  • Cut the salmon fillet in half
  • Brush each piece with an alcohol of your choice
  • Add the La Pincée mixture to the flesh of the fish and massage it with your hands so that the spices adhere well.
  • Place the pieces of salmon on top of the other, flesh against flesh.
  • Wrap the fish pieces in plastic wrap and place them in a dish. Take care to put a heavy object on the pieces of salmon and let sit for three days.
  • Once the fish is ready, cut it into thin slices and lay them on crackers topped with sour cream and dill.

You can also watch the La Pincée video to see the preparation steps.

Here you are with a bite that will charm your guests. Do not hesitate to garnish your cream cheese bagel with a little gravlax or even accompany your gravlax with a few pieces of mango.
