Here in California where we also have good salmon, and we have both "smoked
salmon" and "lox."

LOX - Brine-cured salmon, which may or may not be also cold-smoked.

Lox is "prepared" differently, as noted in the definition above.

The lox that I've typically had all my life comes in very thin slices (it's
not a spread, although of course it can be made into a spread like anything
else). And I especially enjoy it on a bagel with cream cheese. Lox is also
a common part of kosher Jewish foods.

Makes me hungry for lunch and it's only 10:30am here..... <grin>
