Congrats to all! And thanks to the Editors and especially AntoniaJames for her lovely review of my "scattered rice".

My pleasure, IPK! I'm forever indebted to you for my first adventure ever into gravlax. And I simply loved how you just left the rice + tea alone! The only way, really, to do justice to green tea. ;o)

Gravlax rocks! So glad you're happy with it and knowing you, you'll find so many ways to enjoy!
