Lox & Avocado Bagel
1 ripe avocado, peeled
1 tsp. lemon juice
Black pepper to taste
2 slices of lox (or 4 thin strips)*
2 slices red onion
4 slices tomato
1 tsp. capers, rinsed (optional)
In a bowl, mash together avocado and lemon juice. Season with black pepper to taste. Split bagels; spread each half with avocado. Top with lox. Layer the onion, tomato and capers. Serve.
*Note: Lox is defined as a "fillet of brined salmon" that is first cured in a solution of water, salt, sugars and spices and then cold-smoked. Not to be confused with common smoked salmon, cold-smoking requires a smoker-cooker capable of keeping the temperature at 80-degress F or less. Prepared lox can be found in grocery stores and specialty markets.
Trivia: "Lox" is the Yiddish word for salmon.
