Smoked salmon - royal delicacy

Smoked salmon, also known as red fish, is a delicacy that possesses not only high culinary qualities but also valuable dietary properties.

Emerging in the pristine freshwater of northern rivers, salmon remains a marine fish, with its habitat encompassing the northern waters of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Upon reaching sexual maturity, it returns to the river mouths to spawn. The salmonid family includes species such as pink, chum, sockeye, coho, Atlantic, chinook, and more.

Salmon has been highly valued by connoisseurs since Ancient Greece and Rome, as well as by the nobility of medieval Europe. Its industrial cultivation began as early as the 18th century. Today, alongside fishing, salmon farming in marine farms is widespread.

Smoked salmon: culinary and aesthetic pleasure

Traditionally referred to as red fish, the color of salmon filet can vary from pale pink and light orange to deep red, depending on the species, habitat, diet, and cooking method. Primarily, the color of this fish is formed by the red pigment present in the shells of small marine organisms - the main food of salmonids. The temperature of meat processing, whether cold or hot smoking, also affects the color of the filet.

The tender, melt-in-your-mouth pieces of salmon filet have a uniform texture and retain their shape well, maintaining an aesthetic appearance. The taste is delicate, oily, with a light smoky aftertaste, and an aromatic richness with hints of the sea.
