Homemade Gravlax with Black Pepper

In Soviet Russia gravlax is the important part of many holiday tables. Someone bought it, someone made it home.

Homemade Gravlax with Black Pepper

1 lb salmon with skin
2 tablespoons salt (kosher or sea salt)
1 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoons freshly-ground black pepper.

Rinse your salmon and remove any bones.  In a bowl, mix together your salt,  sugar and pepper.  Sprinkle or spread it on the non-skin side of the salmon.

Wrap the whole thing in cheesecloth.  Place the skin-side-down into a container (to catch the liquid that does come out), like a baking dish.  You can weight down the fish with something heavy. Leave the fish in the fridge for day. Slice and serve.
