Luxurious foods are, practically by definition, extremely expensive. Except for gravlax. For the price of a fresh piece of salmon, you can cure your own gravlax at home, then slice it and serve it as one of the most elegant hors d'oeuvres or light appetizers imaginable. In this recipe we cure it with sugar and salt, caraway, coriander, and dill, then serve it with a tangy mustard-dill sauce.

Gravlax is a traditional Swedish salmon preparation, where salmon is cured in salt, sugar and dill for up to a week. This recipe combines jasmine and green tea instead of the more traditional dill, making for a slightly smoky flavor. It takes a traditional Swedish appetizer and turns it into a simple brunch.
