    I buy if/when it goes on sale and freeze it myself. It's oily enough so that there's no way to know once it's been thawed.

    Well, you can blame yourself and not the #*&% grocer.

    Isn't it physically impossible to freeze a *&%! nova?

    My context is correct.

    It's kinda hard to put "nova" into it's proper context using some
    non-standard and unknown definition.

    I make no mistake. Just because you want to be cryptic and anal
    doesn't make me the asshole.

    no·va/ˈnōvə/
    Noun:
    A star showing a sudden large increase in brightness and then slowly
    returning to its original state over a few months.

    You buy stars at your grocer, do you? How big is their freezer? And
    what do you do with them once you get them home?

    Perhaps you mean "lox"? That's what those of us who speak and write
    English call it. Calling it "nova" makes about as much sense as
    calling it "scot" [with no offense to our two Scott's (OK, plus Jill)]
    I bet you call San Francisco "Frisco" and your vitamins, "Flints".

    Scottish lox is far superior to anything from NOVA SCOTIA anyway.
    Colder and fresher waters. The fact that the only lox you can buy is
    from Canada (and probably farmed) and is FROZEN just shows you how
    much of redneck you are in redneck town using a redneck term. Ft
    Meyers/Arlington? Figures.

    Blame? Why blame? Lox freezes as well as butter.

    I don't know where you hail from. but around New York delis and supermarkets, "nova" means lox from Nova Scotia, and by extension, any lox with about half the salt of the less sxpensive varieties. Unfortunately, it seems to have become a synonym for lox, without any implication about quality.

    I prefer the lox from Norway that a friend brings with her when she visits.

    Not in my experience. It loses the lovely silken texture and it seems
    to lose a bit of freshess too. The difference between frozen and un-
    is easy to perceive.

    Oh, and I figured out the answer to my earlier rhetorical question:
    You call him "sqwishy".

    I had no idea "nova" referred to "lox", Steve, so thanks for clearing that
    up. Seems to me the only way to get really fresh lox is live where the
    salmon is fished (or farmed) then cured/brined/seasoned. Grocery stores in
    areas where it isn't readily available would have no choice but to freeze
    it, if for no other reason than for transport to their locations. It's
    geography

    He's wrong. Nova and lox are distinct variants of smoked salmon.

    Anybody who conflates the two terms is speaking some regional dialect.

    Actually not. There are several types of lox and not all are
    smoked.... "smoked salmon" is not lox. Nova refers to Nova
    Scotia lox, a mild type. Scotch lox is more assertive. Belly lox is
    a saltier lox. Then there are various types of pickled lox. At one
    time most lox was home made by the individual venders, ergo each store
    sold something uniquely different, there are as many types of lox as
    there are those who make it. Nowadays what's sold as lox is NOT
    lox... it's lox like Velveeta is cheese.

    It is only different from Gravlox/gravlax. Which is a different word,
    you'll notice.
