Balik Side Gravlax is a traditional Scandinavian dish made from thinly sliced salmon that has been cured with salt, sugar, and dill, and served cold as an appetizer or hors d'oeuvre. The term "balik side" refers to the specific cut of the salmon taken from the belly of the fish. 

Balik Side Gravlax is a traditional Scandinavian dish made from thinly sliced salmon. Gravlax literally means "buried salmon". The Scandinavians discovered this natural method of preserving freshly caught salmon for several weeks centuries ago. Balik has adapted and refined this tradition for its own purposes. After smoking and trimming, a mixture of dill, salt, pepper and sugar is rubbed into the sides of the Balik, which is then stored in the refrigerator for at least 1 day in order to marinate. The pickled sides are then cut and packaged.

A whole salmon side, mildly smoked, trimmed and then marinated. For direct consumption without lengthy preparation, the whole salmon side has been pre-cut into approx. 40 neat portions. Balik side gravlax is often enjoyed as an appetizer or served alongside other traditional Scandinavian dishes such as pickled herring, potatoes, and sour cream. It can also be served on crackers or bread as an elegant and flavorful addition to any hors d'oeuvre platter.
