Pink Salmon (Gravad Lax) & Mormor’s Knickers

A different shade of pink – Salmon Pink (Swedish: Laxrosa [laks rawsa].This shade of pink apart from the association with the fish  makes me think Grandmother’s (Swedish: Mormor’s knickers, often in a Pink Salmon shade, with a high waist/long legs.

The Salmon Pink as in Gravad Lax *Swedish Cured Salmon is a great dish and easy to make. See link to recipie and video how to make Gravad Lax.
