How can I make the most out of my Smoked Salmon?

You’ve placed your order for your sliced pack or side of salmon and now the hardest decision – how to serve it.

Really, you need no more than slices of fresh wholemeal bread and butter with fresh lemon and a twist of black pepper. Our smoked salmon is “delicious firm textured, with a balanced saltiness and delicate hint of smoke“. Like all smoked foods, it is best served at room temperature to maximise the balance of flavour from the fish and the tannins from natural smoking over oak.

If you would like a more formal way to serve your smoked salmon, look no further than Smokey Jo’s smoked salmon serving suggestions!

Simply pile up the ingredients onto each Crostini or Canapé shells starting with the creme fraiche or Mayonnaise, which acts a bit like a glue!
