Wowza I’m stupid! I should have listened to the comments about store bought seasoning being too salty. Now I’ve got a whole Tupperware of these salty little beasts. I haven’t come up with a way to salvage the ingredients yet… was thinking of just mashing them up, adding more cream cheese and putting into some lettuce cups.
Love this! Thanks!!
Can’t wait to try these!
These are amazing. I do not like the taste of lox but my husband and I were fighting over these. They are a great savory option for a fat bomb.
Fantastic…hard to eat just one.🤪
I am absolutely in love with these! I love bagels and lox, but I can’t eat bagels on Keto. I made these using red onion in place of scallions, and added some capers. I got all the flavors I love without the carbs. I bought already made bagel seasonings at Trader Joe’s (no added sugar), and it was a huge time saver. Instead of rolling them, I just sprinkled on top, so they weren’t overly salty. I’m very happy with this one.
how do you roll these into balls successfully and make them look presentable? mine pretty much were a sticky mess and couldn’t get them into a ball. in the picture, there stacked in the glass and look as though you could grab one without it sticking to the others. mine, not the case haha
Put some olive oil cooking spray on your hands. It keeps things from getting sticky when you roll them. I also placed mine on wax paper on a cookie sheet, separated from each other, and put them in the fridge until they set. Mine came out great.
I just made these and they are absolutely delicious! I used a garlic pepper smoked salmon and made my own seasoning for the outside. I can’t keep my hands off them. Thank you so much!
Why (raw) smoked salmon and not hot smoked salmon?
Traditional Lox is made with (raw) cold smoked salmon, the smoking and curing technically cooks it so it’s not really ‘raw’ — from a texture perspective, hot smoked is sturdier where as cold smoked is very soft and blends in. The flavors are different as well.
What kind of salmon? The kind in a can or pouch in the canned meat section, or salmon in the ba in the refrigerated section? And how much is needed?
The recipe is at the end of my blog post, it gives the ingredient list and amounts needed.
Just started Keto a couple weeks ago and decided to try these. They looked SO yummy. Guess what? They are SO yummy! I used the seasoning from Trader Joe’s and mistakenly rolled them in it and found them a tad too salty. Next time, and there will be, I’ll be more frugal with it. I let one soften a bit at room temperature and spread it on a zero-carb parmesan cracker I found. Think I’ll go have another:).
Thank you for this ingenious recipe.
That’s exactly why I make my own seasoning! Glad you are enjoying them
Might be good to add that to your “notes” that the store bought ones are much saltier and may not want to roll it in the mix as pictured.
I go into the super-saltiness in my seasoning recipe <3
