I am trying to master making Gravlax so comes out consistently perfect. Does anyone have a fool proof method?
Last week's batch came out spot on perfect in 48 hrs using 3/4 cup sugar 1 cup kosher salt one pound of cheap Pacific US farm raised Salmon that was marbled with fat. This week I followed the identical procedure using wild caught Canadian salmon that was pricey in comparison and it came out too dry. This has been going on for over a year now. Sometimes it's perfect other times not so good. Is there a specific type of salmon that I should be buying that works better than others?
