Recipe: Fennel-aquavit gravlax with caraway crème fraîche

Subtler than smoked salmon, gravlax has a velvety texture and a delicate taste, particularly when it's scented with notes of anise and licorice the way Amy Scattergood prepared it for a story on brunches. Just take skin-on salmon fillets, spread them with equal parts sugar and kosher salt. Add some sliced fennel and a sprinkling of aquavit -- a Scandinavian spirit similar to vodka that is typically flavored with caraway. Stack the fillets, wrap them in cheesecloth, add weights on top and put the whole thing in the refrigerator. After 24 hours, turn the package over; after two days, unwrap the fish, scrape off the salt-fennel mixture and slice it very thinly on a bias. It pairs beautifully with a bowl of crème fraîche studded with toasted caraway seeds.
