Gravlax and Dill Skyr Crostini

Recipe By: LindseyEats


Homemade gravlax (it’s easier than you’d think!), on toasted crostini’s with a dill skyr spread is just delicious! The gravlax mixture is a blend of salt, sugar, peppercorns, zest and fennel seeds with dill; stored tightly in the fridge and thinly sliced prior to serving. The thick and creamy dip is easy and can be made in less than 5 mins with our Traditional Plain Skyr, fresh dill, lemon and garlic. This recipe is simple & impressive!
