"A yummy new addition- ‘Pale but interesting’ with pale ale, black pepper and lemon. We both really enjoyed it and will have it again. The alcohol added is subtle and the main flavour that comes thru is the beautiful quality smoked salmon, plus the lemon and pepper. Highly recommend!" Fiona S.

Ingredients: Atlantic salmon (FISH) salt, Demerara sugar, pale ale (MALTED BARLEY, MALTED WHEAT) black pepper, lemon zest, apple and beech smoke.


Minimum 5 days shelf life on delivery. Suitable for freezing

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

The best smoked salmon ever!

Hosting the annual Burns dinner, we had to have Scottish smoked salmon before the haggis. Pished Fish salmon paté on oatcakes for canapés was so good that our guests stopped to take the last few before going into dinner. Starter of Pished Fish with Pale ale, black pepper and lemon, was delicious. Their hand sliced salmon is a different league from the usual rather wet floppy thin slices elsewhere. I wouldn’t look anywhere else for smoked salmon.

I have tried all the flavours and do like all of them. This one is subtle and delicious have tried it with cream cheese and avocado in a baguette and also with scrambled egg. Both work- to the point that after trying one pack I then stocked up on another 11 !

Pale but interesting

I ordered the half side for my daughter's birthday in the hope that the pepper would make it too adult a taste for my voracious small grandchildren. Faint hope. It was utterly delicious. Subtle flavour from the marination, with nice hits of black pepper. I think the real key to its success is the thick slices, making it half way between smoked salmon and sushi. This will hopefully be a staple at all future family gatherings. Great value and really fab fish.
