When making gravlax, it’s important to first remove the small pin bones that aren’t attached to the main skeleton of the fish. Some fish mongers will have already done this for you, but to check, place the fillet skin-side down on a work surface and run your fingers along the centre of the flesh.

If you find the flesh is tearing as you pull the bone out, chances are you’re pulling it in the wrong direction.
