This is my favorite smoked salmon. It’s got a lot of up front smoke but it’s also got a tangy sweetness to it and I love the creamy texture. It’s an amazing breakfast on a toasted English Muffin with mayo or cream cheese. It’s also great on a salad and to be honest I’ll often just eat it right out of the package. It’s hot smoked so the texture is not like the cold-smoked salmon you may be used to. It’s more like a regular cooked salmon, but it’s got so much more flavor and because of the high fat content of farm-raised Atlantic salmon it’s got a nice creaminess to it.
I had my friend and assistant with packing Colby try it last week and he said the smokiness at first reminded him of summer sausage, but the texture was creamy and delicious. He raved about it and I think you will too.
This package contains 5 to 6 ounces of farm raised Atlantic salmon smoked by Grindstone Neck of Maine, based in Winter Harbor. Winter Harbor is on the Schoodic Peninsula, which is just northeast of Mt. Desert.
If you have concerns about the sustainability of farm raised salmon feel free to get in touch. As a fisheries manager I’m OK with this option, especially knowing where it’s grown.
