Help! Gravlax tastes like sugar- can I salvage it?

I used this recipe: http://nymag.com/listings/recipe/grav...

I just tasted it today and it tastes like candy salmon. The first flavor I get is overwhelming sugar, then overwhelming salt, and at a distant third the flavor of salmon. The texture is all right, but the overall verdict is YUCK.

I don't want 20 euros of salmon to go to waste... is there any way to lessen the flavor of sugar? Soaking it in water maybe?

Have a dinner party tomorrow where the salmon was promised. I'd be grateful for any help!
