Salmon Cured in Beetroot and Horseradish (Gravlax)

Aside from the 36 hours needed to cure the salmon, this dish should only take 15 minutes of your time tops. But it’ll so much worth the wait. Let's build on the traditional gravlax curing mixture of salt, sugar, and dill by tossing juicy beetroot and spiking the whole thing with horseradish, lemon, and vodka. The oily salmon meat will wonderfully borrow these flavors.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
