shopping for coarse salt and salmon
- mbe Dec 20, 2006 12:57 PM
Am in Shanghai and am looking to make Gravlax. Does anyone know where I can buy coarse salt? (du gros sel).
Salmon I can find but if anyone has a recommendation as to where I should pick up a nice side of salmon that would be great too.
The upscale Lianhua outlet in the basement of the Grand Gateway mall (Xujiahui) has a lot of Western stuff but I can't guarantee they'll have what you want.
You might call the Swedish Consulate; they can probably help you.
That's funny. Here in Paris I get my gravlax ingredients at the Chinese supermarket because it's always cheaper and fresher than elsewhere.
