Serves ~8 People/lb
- Salmon thawed and raw
- Saran/Plastic Wrap
- 2+ Baking Sheets
- Something Heavy (e.g. Books/Weight/Brick)
- Refrigerate: Place this stack in the fridge for 48hrs at about a 20-degree angle so that the liquid from the salmon moves away from the fish. Tip: Use another tray or platter to catch any liquid at the bottom of this angle
- Clean and slice: After the 48hrs, rinse off the salmon and cut thin slices along the grain to create your lox slices.
- Garnish and serve: Sprinkle with lemon juice, dill, and capers or serve on a bagel with cream cheese, purple onion, tomato, and capers.
