Smoked Salmon

Fresh salmon that has undergone a smoking process by either hot or cold smoking. Cold-smoking, producing a product called lox, is brined or cured in salt and/or sugar before smoking at 70-90 degree temperatures. The result is a salmon that is delicate in texture and flavor. It is usually served in paper-thin slices. Hot-smoking is a process in which the salmon is smoked for hours in temperatures of 120-180 degrees producing a firm, flaky texture and a stronger smoky flavor.
