Hot-smoked salmon in the DC area?
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where "smoked salmon" referred to a product in which the fish was brined, air-dried slightly, and hot-smoked, resulting in firm, flaky-textured fish. Now, living in DC, all I can find is stuff like Nova Lox, which, is soft, moist, thinly-sliced, and so forth. Can Northwest-style hot-smoked salmon be bought in the DC area, and, if so, where would I go to get it?
what you are referring to is kippered salmon. you can get it at kosher mart in rockville, shalom in wheaton and I think at Balducci's in Bethesda

Thanks for the tips, all. Whole Foods did, indeed, have some, but it didn't look that great, and was expensive for what you got, so I ended up deciding to smoke my own (it's smoking on the back deck as we speak). Ellen, had I done a better job of thinking ahead, I probably would have ordered, so thanks for the suggestion as to where to look for next time.
