TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
- Add beetroot, orange zest, lemon zest and juniper berries to mixing bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 8. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.
- Add rock salt, sugar and gin to mixing bowl and puree 1 sec/speed 8.
- Place salmon skin-side down in baking tray and cover with curing mixture. Wrap tightly in cling film and refrigerate overnight (24 hours).
- Carefully remove the cling film and rinse off the First Cure. Be very gentle with the salmon to ensure the fillet does not break. Use a spoon to gently push the beetroot and salt off the fish and rinse under cool water. By now the beetroot with have shared its amazing flavour and colour with the fish. Rinse the tray clean and set aside.
- Add dill, tarragon, horseradish and gin to the mixing bowl then chop 3 sec/speed 8.
- Put the salmon back into the clean tray skin-side down. Pack the herb and gin cure onto the salmon making sure to cover all of the flesh.
- Again, wrap the salmon tightly in cling film and refrigerate overnight (24 hours).
- The following day, your beetroot cured gravadlax will be perfectly cured and ready to cut. You do not need to rinse off the second cure - the fresh herbs add a fabulous flavour to the final dish. Simply unwrap from the cling film and gently place salmon skin-side down on paper towel to absorb any excess liquid.
- Slice the salmon on an angle - as finely as you can. You will get gorgeous thin slices of gravadlax of a vibrant colour and flavour.
