Lox, Nova, Gravlax, Hot-smoked, Cold-Smoked, there are a lot of names for cured Salmon out there and for those who haven’t worked in a deli, navigating through the array of labels can be slightly daunting. Allow us to break it down for you.
Gravlax- is cured (but not smoked) Salmon. It is generally seasoned with dill and a handful of other typical Scandinavian spices, then weighed down for a couple of days to cure.
Lox- on the other hand, is cut from the belly and is salt-cured, but also not smoked. Many people confuse Lox with smoked Salmon, but it’s a thing unto itself diverging into varying realms of hot and cold.
Cold-smoked- Salmon is the one people often confuse with Lox. This variety is brined in sugar and salt then smoked for around 15 hours, keeping the temperatures below 80F. Its texture is similar to Lox, but the smokey flavor is entirely its own.
Hot-smoked- is kept at around 130F for a much shorter period (about three hours), rendering a flaky consistency similar to cooked Salmon but much juicier. Now that we’ve shed a little light on the confusing world of cured and smoked Salmon, we encourage you to go put that information to good use and get some of your favorites today!
