Several weeks ago I posted a recipe for homemade gravlax, promising to share the recipe for my favorite creation made with the leftovers.

Leftover salmon of any kind is uncommon in my household, especially since it’s a treat that we don’t enjoy all that often. I LOVE salmon pizza, though, so sometimes I try to save a little for that purpose.

This time, I used gravlax.

There are two benefits to this:
1) If you’re tired of eating the straight-up cured meat, you can mix things up and create something new;
2) Technically this method COOKS the fish (in addition to curing it, which you’ve already done), so anyone who’s squirmy about eating “raw” fish can relax and enjoy it guilt-free. You’ll be able to see it become less and less opaque as it bakes.

You can by all means use regular leftover salmon here, too.

I’m the stereotypical Minnesotan girl of a century ago, only in the year 2016 and with treasured modern conveniences like heated seats and convection ovens.

BOO!

Did I scare you? :)

It’s been a long year of doctor visits, fatigue, and unanswered health concerns, but I’m feeling a million times better after God healed me in an amazing way a few weeks ago!

After spending a week at Mayo Clinic, seeing various local and far-away specialists, quitting the full-time job that I was no longer able to handle, and trying every conceivable remedy to cure my overwhelming exhaustion, I quite simply felt like my body was slowly wasting away.
