On promotion as the best before dates are approaching – but these salmon will be delicious on the 23rd as well (even a day or two after as these are best before as opposed to use by dates).
Many of our customers, friends & Family have tried this smoked salmon and commented that it is the best they have tried. So a little about what makes it so good!
We order from Severn and Wye their VAR smoked salmon, which is the best in their range, and certainly amongst the finest farmed smoked salmons in the world.
Raised in the cold waters of the Faroe Islands (north of Scotland), VAR Salmon is renowned for its high quality, superb texture and full-flavoured taste. The geographical position of the Faroe Islands is ideal for farming Atlantic salmon and combines clear waters, cool steady sea temperatures and strong currents and is a natural habitat for wild salmon in Winter.
The farming process is centred around the welfare of the fish with zero use of antibiotics or chemicals; the salmon are farmed in a way which mimics the rough water conditions of wild salmon (with use of tides and currents) – and the results are plain to the taste and give the next best thing to wild Atlantic salmon in flavour and texture.
Add to this Severn & Wyes know-how, and you have a really superb example of smoked salmon! The quality of the salmon is very high, the texture excellent and very “moelleux” (yielding and moist) and Severn and Wye have smoked this just right, rather on the low side, which we find better.
And the salmon is cut into long slices, which add to visual impact when serving.
VAR salmon is not easy to find commercially and this is a rare treat.
At it’s best served at room temperature with some lemon halves to squeeze over it and/ or some lightly toasted rye bread and butter.
With regard wine pairings, a very chilled white wine such as a Muscadet, Sancerre, or Riesling.
Salmon 96%, salt, sugar.
Store in a fridge until best before date. Once open we recommend using your salmon within 3 days. Please note that smoked salmon can be successfully frozen. And if you don't use it immediately, or all at once, you are probably best of freezing it.
