    Erik was brilliant! Will definitely be ordering again.

    A great purchase

    Excellent customer service and we hope wonderful fish as we are keeping it for New Year's eve.

    Great packaging and name but very poor product/taste

    Being scandinavian I couldn't wait to taste the Erik The Red promising all the flavours I was brought up on - aquavit, beetroot, juniper and star anise. The packaging and presentation was beautiful and four us (salmon lovers) opened the packed straight away to fight over the few slices. I opened it and couldn't resist smelling it - expecting to take me back home - I stayed exactly where I was. There was a tiny smell of smoke but absolutely nothing else. The fish was red - but no taste of beetroot. The fish had a raw texture - not at all what we expected from the description. (I make graved laks myself all the time and that melts in the mouth). Nobody went back for a second taste and I sadly had to bin it. I hope this was a one of batch that might have been rushed.
    100g for £12.21 (including postage and discount).

    Dear Inge, I am terribly sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy Erik The Red. He is one of our more popular flavours, but can also be our Brexit flavour (some people love him, some hate him) but it sounds like we didn’t tick any boxes for you on this occasion. Humble apologies, we do try to put a smile on everyone’s face, but sorry we fell short this time.

    Beautiful product and amazing quality- service 5 star!

    The most delicious thing I have ever put in my mouth (sorry husband, you included)

    Silken salmon.

    You’ll make an old fish bush!
