Cold smoked salmon (Nova Lox)
 
Picked up a nice filet of salmon and decided to try Thirdeyes Nova Lox. His method is discussed here http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...36&postcount=1
It is basically a double cured technique using a dry cure, then a wet cure.
It is not difficult and I highly recommend it.


Here is a pic right out of the wet cure.

Onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and dill weed and into the cold smoker for 3 hours.

Let is sleep overnight for all the smoke and flavors to settle and you have Nova Lox.

Make sure you serve it really cold, preferably on a cold plate. I think this piece of salmon cost $15.00. If I bought that Lox I can't even imagine how much I would have had to pay.

That looks awesome, Marty! Glad to see you are putting that new cold smoker to use! :-D

Looks really good I'm a big lox fan I will have to try this especially with the double cure

Wampus 04-09-2013 09:16 PM

That looks absolutely amazing. BEAUTIFUL!


Question.....how is this different than hot smoked salmon?

I do a cured, hot smoked salmon (cooked through). I'm assuming since this is cold smoked that it's got a different texture? I can't slice mine thin like that.



I gotta try that.

Looks beautiful, Marty! I know it always feels like cheating when I make that because it is soooooo easy!

rifraf 04-09-2013 09:34 PM

Lox is a cured salmon that is not cooked at all. The salt and sugar does their thing to the salmon. It is a moist, delicate piece of meat that should be cut very thin (wish I had a meat cutter/Hobart). The warmest this salmon ever got was about 70 degrees.

It reads like a great recipe & your effort looks fantastic. I am waiting for cooler weather so I can cold smoke to try it.
