What does gravlax taste like? Gravlax tastes like a cross between salmon sashimi(imagine it with the addition of seasoning from salt plus fresh herb flavour), and the smoked salmon slices you buy at stores – but minus the smokey flavour (because smoked salmon is made by smoking salmon).

Serve with dark pumpernickel bread and mustard sauce. You can also serve with chopped red onion and capers, if desired.
