How to Make Lox
Lox is smoked and cured salmon. It is not cooked.
Lox is smoked and cured
salmon so you can't make real lox without real wood smoke but you can make lox
without a smoker. All you need is a
SmokePistol and a container like an ice chest or even a cardboard box.
¬∑ Salmon filets
¬∑ Plain salt (not iodized)
¬∑ Garlic or season salt
¬∑ Black pepper
¬∑ 1 maple, or other flavor
Smoking time is 4-5 hours
in a cooled container
PREPARATION and HOW TO
Remove any skin from salmon
fillets. Place salmon fillets in shallow baking dish and season with garlic or
season salt and pepper on both sides. Sprinkle each side heavily with plain
salt cover and refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours. Wash off all salt and seasoning and
place in cold box or cold smoker. (Ice packs can be used inside smoker or box
to keep the inside cold. )
Start the cartridge and
SmokePistol. You can also use a
GrillKicker‚ĄĘ instead of the SmokePistol but you will need about 4 refill
cartridges. Smoking will take about 4-5 hours without heat (cold smoke). Make
sure the SmokePistol is set to medium and slowly smoke. Replace spent cherry
cartridge with maple cartridge and then use the two apple cartridges. When
smoking is done wrap salmon in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours. Slice
salmon on diagonal to make wide slices and enjoy. This is a favorite for people
that don't even like salmon.
