What is the difference between Nova lox and smoked salmon?

Nova Lox is smoked salmon. Smoked Salmon is produced by treating the fish with salt and wood smoke. It is just a matter of how much salt and smoke curing time. On the one end of the scale is hard smoked fish like that made by the Indian peoples of the American Northwest. It is heavily salted and smoked until it is cured enough so that it can be stored without refrigeration for some time. The end product is tough, salty and dry. Fish jerky. Nova Lox is the opposite end of the scale. Lightly salted, lightly smoked and very delicate. Ordinary Lox is similar to Nova Lox but much saltier. Lou Rowe
