Marinated Salmon
Ingredients:

2 salmon fillets with skin, 5oz (140g)
3 tbsp coarse sea salt
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp coarsely crushed black peppercorns
3 tbsp aquavit or vodka
4 tbsp chopped dill
Lemon wedges, to garnish
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp distilled white vinegar
1 tsp sour cream
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp chopped dill

Instruction:

Score each fillet with several diagonal shallow cuts on the skin side, about 1/8 in (3mm) deep. Combine the salt, sugar, and peppercorns. Sprinkle a quarter of the mixture on the bottom of a shallow nonmetallic dish. Place one fillet, skin-side down, in the dish and sprinkle with half the aquavit and another quarter of the salt mixture. Spread 2 tbsp of the dill in an even layer over the fillet. Sprinkle the flesh side of the second fillet with another quarter of the dry mixture. Place it, skin-side up, on top of the first fillet. Rub the remaining salt-and-sugar mixture over the skin and sprinkle with the remaining aquavit. Cover the salmon with a sheet of wax paper. Top with a large flat plate or cutting board, and weigh it down with cans of food. Refrigerate for 24 hours, checking the salmon every 6 hours and draining off accumulated liquid from the dish. Turn the salmon over and refrigerate for another 24 hours, turning and weighing the salmon every 6 hours or so. To make the mustard sauce, thoroughly whisk the mustard, oil, sugar, vinegar, sour cream, and salt in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour. Just before serving, add the dill. To serve, scrape the seasonings and dill from the salmon. Place the salmon, skin-side down, on a cutting board. Slice the fish thinly on the slant, away from the skin. Sprinkle with the remaining dill. Serve with the mustard sauce and lemon wedges.
