Lox using cod?.
« on: May 09, 2017, 02:51:38 am »
Hey has anyone in there experience used cod fish for lox? even hot smoked it? I have probably 100 lbs + in the freezer so I wouldnt mind trying something with it.
We usually have a meal of fried cod once every couple of weeks but the season is soon approaching so I'd like to use this up.

I have smoked Lings before.

If it were me I would likely try to lox it, rather than hot smoke it.

But I guess you have the luxury of trying a lb or two of each method and then proceeding with the rest if it meets your taste approval.

If I were closer I would have been happy to work up multiple small batches for you as samplers
