Making Lox a picture guide. - Page 8

post #141 of 145

Maybe a dumb question maybe not.......Can you cold smoke salmon caught in Lake Michigan which are considered "fresh water" and would it be safe even if using cure?  I know you cant or at least shouldn't eat any fresh water fish raw for sushi, so I wasn't sure if cold smoking or curing would be any different. I have had hot smoked fresh water salmon which is great, but never heard or seen fresh water lox??

I don't know why not...   Follow this recipe to a "T" and you should be good to go....   I've used this recipe and it is very good.....

The other thing I do when I make lox is to freeze it after it's made for 30 days at -10 degrees.

This will kill any parasites in the fish that the cure won't.

It's probably overkill, but I do it anyway.

My lox would never make it to the freezer before it's all gone.
