Sushi grade Scottish salmon

”I got this because I was feeling adventurous, and looking for savoury, lunchy things. I was nervous, because I wasn't sure I would like the texture. Fish Jerky? Really? But, it was absolutely delicious! The teriyaki and honey works perfectly, and I am looking forward to getting more!" Laura A.
Ingredients: Atlantic salmon (FISH) salt, Demerara sugar, teriyaki sauce (Soybeans, wheat, sulphur dioxide), Tabasco, honey, black pepper.
Minimum 1 month shelf life on delivery. Suitable for freezing
You're probably asking what is Gilltong?! Well its our own little invention, half way between jerky and biltong, but made with smoked salmon - hence gilltong, get it now?!
We take our same prime fillets of smoked salmon, hand slice them thickly before marinating in teriyaki, honey, Tabasco sauce and black pepper.
After marinating we air dry until the slices are chewy, succulent and tender. In no way tough like beef jerky or biltong. It's sweet, salty, a little bit spicy and ever so addictive!
We don't think you've tried anything like this before.
Perfect for snacking. It contains no booze, but works rather wonderfully with pale ale, but you can choose your own tipple!
With the inability to give you a sample like we would at our market stall we offer a money back guarantee on any products you don't like! If you're a smoked salmon lover, and not afraid to try something a little different, we're sure you're our kind of customer. If you really don't like it we'll refund you in full. Can't say fairer than that!
Chilled Delivery Guarantee
With our no quibble guarantee we will refund or replace any products that don't arrive with you in perfect condition.
Please allow up to 3-5 business days for delivery at the moment as everything is being made fresh to order to keep up with demand (June 2022) We make our smoked salmon fresh each week. Most smaller pack sizes (100g and 200g) we hold some stock of and will despatch as quick as possible which is the same for our Taster and Gift packs. For larger sizes (half and whole sides) we will slice these in the week and deliver on the coming Friday (e.g order Tuesday morning, will be with you Friday) If you need it more quickly, please pop us an email (we're very friendly) and we'll do our best to get it out to you sooner, or offer the same weight in smaller pack sizes. If you're not sure, don't hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org and if you have any special requirements or need to hold delivery until a later date, please state these in the notes section in the cart or at checkout.
Northern Ireland, Highlands and Islands
We sadly can no longer offer delivery to Northern Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Due to the nature of our products we are unable to reliably ship goods to these places in a timely and safe manner whereby they are still chilled on arrival. We have been getting a lot of lost and late parcels and a lot of wastage.
For existing customers in these locations, please get in touch and we can advise on the costs of Royal Mail special delivery to your location.
How does my smoked salmon get delivered?
Your order will be packaged in insulated packaging filled with ice packs which are tested to keep the products chilled for up to 48 hours. We use DPD to transport the products on an overnight service, so the product should always arrive chilled as though it had been in a fridge. The insulated packaging is either compostable, re-usable or recyclable.
Do I need to be home when it is delivered?
If you're not home we ask the courier to leave the package either with a neighbour or in a safe place. It is always preferable to have someone around to sign for the delivery though, so an address where someone is available (home or work) would help.
How much does delivery cost?
Delivery free when you spend £50, or below that £5.95 and is applied at checkout, and is based on your cart total after any discounts.
Where is the salmon from?
We source our salmon through Billingsgate fish market, selecting only the freshest Scottish salmon from farms with a focus on responsible farming. We use wild salmon by special order only, please sign up to our emails to hear when this is possible.
What is the use by date?
All our cold smoked salmon and trout is packaged with a minimum of 23 days shelf life. The only exception is our hot smoked salmon and paté which has a shorter use by date - 14 days. We will never send out any packs of smoked salmon with less than 5 days remaining on its use by date, or pâté with less than 3 days remaining.
Can you freeze it?
Yes, all our products are suitable for freezing. Please freeze on day of arrival.
I have a discount code - where do I use it?
There is a small box in the cart section where you review your order that asks for your discount code. Please enter it here and the discount will be automatically applied.
How much should I buy per person?
We recommend 50g per person as a portion. Really love smoked salmon? Double it!
Do you do wholesale?
Yes indeed - we include some of the finest food-halls in the land as stockists. If you'd like to join them please get in touch here
We source our fresh Scottish farmed salmon via Billingsgate fish market. Wherever possible we choose RSPCA assured Scottish farms*, with key ambitions to follow responsible farming practices.
The salmon is filleted and then slow cured in our unique blend of Dead Sea salt and demerara sugar. The slow cure firms up the fish and gives the salmon a more meaty texture. It is not greasy or slimy like some other smoked salmon.
We then smoke gently over complementary wood smokes. After smoking, the salmon is rested overnight before being sliced by hand in our little Sussex smokehouse. We choose to slice the salmon in thicker, vertical, more decadent slices. Once our customers have tried it this way they never go back!
*Sometimes this isn't always possible due to weather conditions etc, in which case we choose the next best alternatives
Giltong is dried fish - so how is it so juicy? It must be magic. If you love fish, you may be surprised how nice it is with honey (and teriyaki). Delicious.
If you like spice choose the chilli
If you like sweet choose the teriyaki and honey
Personally I always buy equal amounts of both cos I think there both great
I like the way you think! Just get a bit of each.
I love love love the giltong - especially the teryaki and honey. It goes amazingly well with a beer! I do however have a complaint ... I need more in the pack lol! Seriously tasty, great flavours ... yum!
ordering is so easy and delivery and packaging is amazing - I know that the fish is arriving in tip top condition.
Not disappointed so far and will definitely be ordering again in the future
thank you Pished Fish!
Thank you for such a fabulous review Max! And for the feeedback on delivery and packaging. This is always great to hear.
So so amazed and happy with this gorgeous salmon. It’s delicate in flavour, great texture and sublime in every way. Really loved the aquavit and beetroot but now I can’t wait to keep ordering and trying all the flavours ! Fantastic - don’t hesitate. Some of the best I’ve had and delivery and ordering all seamless. Thank you Pished Fish, you answered my Pished Fish Wish 😂
Thank you Sonya. So glad that you enjoyed the order. We would love to hear what you think on any future orders.
Sadly, although this Giltong tasted great, it was all stuck together in a block. When I tried to separate it with a fork at least half of it shot out if the bowl and into the floor. Bit disappointing so perhaps it could be packed with a little more care to stop it forming one lump?
Sorry to hear of escaping Gilltong! We do pack every pack with the same amount of care, but as it is vacuum sealed it draws it all together to keep it nice and tightly secured. As there is honey on it, when chilled it can stick together a bit, but a few minutes out of the fridge should allow it to loosen a little.
On your next order please mention this email in the notes and we'll include a pack of gilltong on the house.
