    Latest batch of Lox

    Got one last nice cold weekend, so I took the opportunity to turn the last 3 salmon fillets I got from a coworker into lox. Used the exact same method as last time, with the addition of adding dill to the wet brine and sprinkling it with dill before the vacuum seal. I wasn't sure why one of my...
