Lox definition - Courtesy of Wiki - Everyday's a schoolday!
"The term lox derives from Lachs in German and לאַקס (laks) in Yiddish, meaning "salmon". It is a cognateof Icelandic and Swedish lax, Danish and Norwegian laks, and Old English læx.
Sometimes called regular or belly lox, lox is traditionally made by brining in a solution of water or oil, salt, sugars and spices (the brine). Although the term lox is sometimes applied to smoked salmon, they are different products."

Happy Hump Day!!
