How long will smoked salmon (lox) keep in the fridge after the package has been opened? I love lox and bagels with cream cheese for breakfast, but alas the hubby does not, so I am the lone eater here and I tend to throw things out rather than keep them. I have a fear of getting sick on food past its prime. If I knew it would be safe to eat, I could probably finish the package in two weeks . . . would it still be okay to eat? If not, would the smell be off? I threw the remains of some out over the weekend that had been in the fridge (opened) for about 16 days--it didn't smell weird, but I was just scared to eat it. But what a waste!
