You should post some pics of the finished product.
my recipe for gavadlax is something like 150g salt, 250g sugar, 2 chopped bunches of dill, a t-spoon of white pepper and some cracked black pepper, then, mix it together add spread on the side of salmon, and leave for 2 or3 days depending on the size of it, find what ever i can to weigh it down (catering size boxes of butter tend to do the trick) serve with watercress salad and honey and whole grain mustard dressing,
