Recipe: Smoked Salmon or Gravadlax Platter with a Cucumber Relish

Have you tried some salmon?

Classified as an oily fish, it is considered to be healthy due to the fish’s high protein, high omega-3 fatty acids, and high vitamin D content.

Salmon can be eaten raw as sashimi or sushi (buy the freshest you can find), marinated with sugar and dill to make gravadlax poached, pan-fried, grilled, baked or braised.

Poached salmon is very popular and with good reason – it is delicious served both hot and cold and makes a great centrepiece for any festive occasion.

This versatile, oil-rich fish is a popular restaurant choice but you can work wonders with it at home too.

What’s more, smoked salmon is a versatile ingredient that’s great to use in quick and easy starters or light main meals.
