    **BRAD** Since I became 100% plant based, I appreciate fermenting SO MUCH! It's added a flavor profile to my diet that I was missing without dairy. Can you give a nod to tofu sometime? I'd like to try to marinate and cure it but I'm kinda nervous. Thank you for so much great content!!

    The question is: has Brad ever watched an It's Alive episode or does he think that they take the best take of his introductions and not a compilation of every single introduction he says?

    I'm not sure what you were going for here but this is not how you make Scandinavian gravad lax. I'm very confused about the lack of dill. Is this like an Americanized version?

    never been a big fan of gravad lax, often would pick it off the food. Would say, unless you really really love gravad lax, a little goes a long way

  • Skylar Jetton

    Fun fact, gravadlax means "graved salmon" because it's, traditionally, buried in the ground or under sand to stay cool and under weight while it cures.
