You may have heard of a new style of salmon coming straight from Scandinavia: gravlax salmon. A seasoned salmon marinated in dill. A change from the traditional smoked salmon! It's a change from the traditional white wine with your smoked salmon!
Gravlax salmon is a very simple recipe: fresh salmon, salt, sugar and dill,... and a little patience before tasting! With always a little touch of innovation, we propose you a gravlax salmon recipe improved with Y'a quoi dans mon frigo. One more weapon to impress the in-laws!
Does this new preparation of salmon require us to revisit our wine and salmon pairing? Actually yes a little! We will favour mineral wines to compensate with the fat of the salmon and the marinade. Avoid wines that are too fatty or too woody even though they can be tempting with this type of dish.
Our recommendations for pairing a wine with gravlax salmon:
