Smoked Wild Sockeye Salmon Lox
You may think that smoked wild salmon lox are the same as other smoked salmon you may have tried in the past. This is a common misconception. Traditional smoked salmon is hot smoked, unlike lox, which is never cooked with heat. Lox, cured using a salty brine mixture, preserves the raw taste and texture, creating an aromatic fullness that is not found with smoked salmon alone.
