Gravlax...why did they call it that?

I've never tried nor made Gravlax, but i hear that it's similar to smoked salmon in a way. I want to try making it for my mom b/c she loves smoked salmon (i also like the technique involved).

has anyone tried it? what do you think of it? and also, does this seem like a good recipe?

Recipes : Gravlax with Mustard Sauce : Food Network
Thx!!!

Gravlax is a different thing from smoked salmon.

Gravlax is salt cured with spices and herbs, no smoking.

Smoked salmon is smoked, not salt cured.

Lox is salt cured and smoked.

You have to decide for yurself if you like it. I can't give you a literal translation of the work.

This is how you can make your own:

Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Gravlax

Lox - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nova Scotia is my personal favorite - less salty, IMO.
