Salmon for gravad lax and salt cured ham

AndreaOK | Nov 22, 2002 02:46 PM

My husband and I are having an open house for the holidays and decided to have a smorgasbord. We are making gravad lax and are looking for a reliable source for excellent salmon. I don't think the stuff we usually get is good enough. Also, I'm having a problem finding salt cured ham. I've been looking and have only found it smoked and fully cooked, or smoked and partially cooked, but not necessarily salt cured.

Any ideas? My guess is that my best bet might be someplace in Andersonville (where one would reasonably expect to find smorgasbord/Scandanavian holiday meal supplies), but never having had occasion to prepare a Scandanavian meal, I have never shopped around there.
