Instructions
To Prepare the Salmon
  1. Ideally, you would want two 500 gram skin on fillets from the center cut of the fillet, remove the pin bones if that is not already done. But you can use the smaller fillets from Tesco, as what is in this photo. When I make this, I will use two of these fillets on the bottom, and two on top, just reduce the salt and sugar in equal proportions.
  2. Mix together the salt, sugar, and white pepper. Rub the mixture into both sides of the salmon fillets.
  3. Put half of the dill between the fillets, then divide up the remaining dill between the top and bottom, place in a ziplock bag and seal after removing as much as as you can. Place the bag in a backing dish and place a smaller dish on top and weight it down with some canned goods.
  4. Place in the fridge for 24 to 48 hours, flip the bag about every 12 hours.
  5. remove from the fridge and remove from the dish. Rinse the fillet very well with cold water, and use your fingers to rub off all the salt and dill. Dry the fillets with paper towels.
  6. Place a fillet skin side down on your cutting board, hold your knife at a angle and slice as thin as you can down to the skin but not through the skin. Repeat with remaining fillet or fillets.
For the Sauce (Gravlaxsås)
  1. Mix together the mustards and sugar, stir until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the vinegar.
  2. Using a mixer or food processor, very slowly add the oil, continuously mixing, start with just drops at first and when it binds (like making mayo), you can increase the amount of oil you are adding at a time. Season with salt and white pepper to taste. Mix in the dill.
  3. Serve with the sliced salmon as an appetizer on rye bread or with boiled potatoes for a lunch or dinner.
Recipe Notes

The salmon fillets I will use will be from Tesco, 69 Baht each for 140 to 160 gram fillets, frozen, from Norway. Initial test will be 4 fillets for a total of 276 Baht, about $8.40. I don't know the number of servings as an appetizer until I make this and I will update the pricing. For now I will say High Cost per serving.

When I make this, I will use two of these fillets on the bottom, and two on top, just reduce the salt and sugar in equal proportions.
  2. Mix together the salt, sugars, and fennel seeds. Sprinkle some of the mixture along the bottom of a glass baking dish, sprinkle some dill on that. Place half of the fillets skin side down on that.
  3. Sprinkle half the remaining salt mixture on the fish and half of the remaining dill. Lay the second piece or pieces of salmon on top of the salmon already in the dish, skin side up.
  4. Sprinkle remaining salt mixture and dill over the top of the fillet. Cover the dish with plastic wrap. Set another smaller dish on top of the fillets and weight it down with some canned goods, a brick wrapped in foil, or any kind of heavy weight.
  5. Place in the fridge for two days to cure, turn the fillets after one day, so the top piece becomes the bottom piece, this is to cure them evenly.
  6. After two days, remove from the fridge and remove from the dish. Rinse the fillet very well with cold water, and use your fingers to rub off all the salt and dill. Dry the fillets with paper towels.
  7. Place a fillet skin side down on your cutting board, hold your knife at a angle and slice as thin as you can down to the skin but not through the skin. Repeat with remaining fillet or fillets.
  8. Place the thin slices on a a serving tray, sprinkle with purple onion, dill, and capers. Serve with toasted rye bread and lemon wedges.

  1. This the type of salmon fillets I get at Tesco, 140 to 160 grams each. One fillet per serving is ideal.
  2. In a non stick pan that will hold all the fillets, add the water, wine, parsley, dill, shallots, and heat to a simmer on medium heat. While the pan is heating, season the salmon with salt on both sides.
  3. When the liquid is simmering, place the fillets in the pan, skin side down, cover and let steam for 5 to 10 minutes depending on thickness of the fillets or until they flake easily with a fork.
  4. Serve lightly sprinkled with black pepper and lemon slices if desired with rice and a vegetable on the side.
Recipe Notes

I bought 4 fillets, Norwegian import, 69 Baht for 140 to 160 gram fillets. I figured the servings as 1 fillet per serving. For 69 Baht per fillet, this is about $2.03 per serving. High cost but would be nice for a once in a while meal.

  1. In a measuring cup, add the vinegar, water, sugar, salt, and pepper, and mix together (see, instead of using another bowl to mix everything, you just saved yourself from washing another item). Pour the mixture into a small container. I used a plastic box.
  2. I used my mandolin placed right on the box with the liquid. I used 4 small cucumbers as shown. Or you can just slice with a knife and add the cucumber slices to the liquid and mix.
  3. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 3 hours to chill and blend the flavors.
  4. When ready to serve, drain the cucumbers, sprinkle on some chopped dill and mix in, serve as a side dish.

The mushroom part intrigued me with this recipe. I have made several recipes from this friend and I have to say, they are all spot on, as well as this one! I made this on 29 Oct 2017 and this is really good. I used small Shiitake mushrooms which will result in a browner appearance than using white button mushrooms.

Instructions
  1. For the mushrooms, white button mushrooms or white Shimeji give the best appearance, Shiitake, brown Shimeji, or Cremini will result in a browner appearance to the salad. If you have seen what the Thais cook, appearance is not a show stopper here, just as long as it tastes good. I used Shiitake with the stems removed and just sliced, not diced.
  2. Heat a large non stick pan on medium heat and add a splash of olive oil, when the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and saute for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and no liquid is in the pan.
  3. Put the mushrooms in a large mixing bowl. Photo showing the browned mushrooms just before I took them out of the pan.
  4. Same pan, and another splash of olive oil, when the oil is hot, add the onion and saute for 10-12 minutes or until golden, then add in the garlic and cook for another minute and remove from heat.
  5. Add the onion, eggs, and dill to the mixing bowl and mix together to combine.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the mayo, mustard, and lemon (lime) juice, stir the dressing into the salad until evenly coated, add more mayo if needed. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  7. Chill for several hours in the fridge before serving. Serve with a little bit of fresh dill sprinkled on top.

Ingredients
Servings: servings as a side
Instructions
  1. Chicken can be prepared two ways:
  2. First way: In a medium pot, add the chicken, fill with water and a teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked through, remove chicken and allow to cool and handle, then dice that and add to a large mixing bowl. Strain the broth and save (refrigerate) for use in another recipe.
  3. Second way: In a medium pot, add the chicken, fill with water and a teaspoon of salt, add trinity (1 carrot large pieces, 1 onion quartered, 1 stalk celery large pieces), and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Remove the pot from heat and let sit until room temp with the chicken in the broth, this makes for juicier chicken. Remove the chicken and dice and add to a large mixing bowl.
  5. Strain the broth and save (refrigerate) for use in another recipe.
  6. Dice the potatoes and carrots to the same size and place in a medium sized pot (same pot used for the chicken would be ideal). add enough water to cover the vegetables by an inch, stir in 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil uncovered and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process, drain well to remove any water. Add to the mixing bowl with the chicken.
  7. Add the peas, eggs pickles, onion, and dill to the mixing bowl, give it a quick stir to mix everything, then add the mayo, salt, and black pepper and mix that in. (I used 3 chicken eggs and a handful of quail eggs, plus I used diced celery in place of peas.)
  8. For the mayo start out with less than a cup and add as needed to fully coat everything.
  9. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before serving. Serve as a side dish, or in my case, this is a light main dish for me. I can see this being a main dish with a fresh cooked cob of corn on the side.
Recipe Notes

The chicken breasts will cost about 35 Baht/500 grams. For 8 servings (as a side), this is about 13 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Refrigerator Pickles.

Variants: 1. Substitute cooked diced ham or kielbasa for the chicken. 2. Add sliced red radish or diced daikon. 3. Use a combination of chicken and quail eggs. 4. Substitute diced celery for the peas.
