The Salmon:
  • 1 whole (or 2 fillets) of raw salmon (If you are using a whole salmon, cut it in half and de-bone it or purchase de-boned fillets from the supermarket.)
The Marinade
  • 7 Tbs. sugar
  • 10 Tbs. salt
  • 2 Tbs. ground black pepper
  • 2 cups fresh dill, chopped
  • 3-1/2 cups aquavit


Place the fish fillets on a baking tray skin side down. Sprinkle the salmon with the sugar, salt and black pepper. Place the dill on the salmon then pour the aquavit over the salmon. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours. After 12 hours turn the fillets over. The next day remove the marinade from the salmon and thinly slice it. 

To Plate: Place slices on a serving tray and garnish the plate with fresh dill and lemon slices.
