A fundamental character on the Jewish breakfast table, lox is brine-cured salmon that is fairly salty – salty enough to want to be paired with a generous schmear of gentle-flavored cream cheese … and to keep with tradition, eaten on a bagel that also contains a slice of tomato and maybe a slice of onion. And perhaps capers and dill, too. Nova lox is the same thing, but less salty.
