Salmon that is cured before it is smoked at low temperatures results in a firm, sliceable fish called lox. Salmon smoked at higher temperatures flakes easily. Both types of smoked salmon work fine in the strata.

made this for a thanksgiving side- it was pretty tasty and made great leftovers, but I would leave out the cottage cheese next time - and I always exclude onions and chives. used extra salmon bits as well.

If you love the classic lox, bagels, with cream cheese, red onions, capers etc - just do that. It was almost like you wrecked the ingredients by cooking them all together.
