Process of smoking salmon
To produce this outstanding smoked salmon, the skin is scored and cured with salt and brown sugar. It’s then left to cure for around 4-6 hours to remove moisture from the salmon before chilling for another 24 hours.
Chilling helps to give it a firmer texture. This combination of curing and chilling also promises an even smoked flavour throughout the salmon.
Once chilled, the salmon is cold smoked in traditional brick smokers at room temperature for 24-36 hours.
The smoked salmon is cooled again for at least 24 hours, in order to let all the oils settle.
After 3-4 days in care, the smoked salmon is ready for you to demolish!
All the salmon is farmed sustainably in Scotland.
