Kosher salt UK?

Post  Loz on Sat Jun 25, 2011 8:19 am

I'm wanting to do some cold smoked salmon lox. All the recipes call for it to be covered in kosher salt which I'm finding difficult to come by in the uk. Is there a similar salt in uk? Or would I use table/rock/sea salt and cure for less time. Would the uk salts give it the same texture and taste as the kosher?

Any help welcome

Thanks

I have used http://www.americansweets.co.uk/american-morton-coarse-ground-kosher-salt-1lb-453g-box-5364-p.asp before but they seem to be out of stock at the moment (glad I bought a load!)..

I have used Maldon Sea Salt before - remember that the reason why kosher salt is called for is the big flakes that dont change too much when you crush it/mix it with other stuff....

If you are desperate (I tend to use sugar to cure my salmon - never tried cold smoking) then I can lend you some if you are close to Essex/London (or more to the point I'll swap a box for some salmon Very Happy Very Happy )

Non iodised table salt is fine, or rock salt will also do the trick.
