We source our salmon through Billingsgate fish market. Our stipulations are that the salmon must be PGI status Scottish salmon and only from RSPCA or Label Rouge approved high welfare farms. The salmon must also be considered sushi grade for freshness.

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!

Delivery is £4.95 or free when you spend £50. Your order will be packaged in recyclable, insulated packaging with an ice pack. DPD is our chosen courier and they will contact you with an hour window for delivery, although you do not need to be at home. We offer a full no quibble refund or replacement for any deliveries that do not arrive in perfect condition

Most orders are despatched in under 3 working days. If you are ordering a larger size (whole or half side) this can be up to 7 working days depending on where we are in our weekly production cycle. If you need this urgently, please contact us directly and we can advise of a lead time.



We charge £10 for delivery to Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Why is this? DPD are unable to reach you within our specified time period, so we need to use Royal Mail who are a lot dearer for a next day tracked parcel.

Mr Chris Furniss

I have ordered from The Pished Fish on a number of occasions and the quality is nothing short of exceptional. Eric The Red is just another superb example of the incredible care and craftsmanship these guys put into making such a wonderful product.


This was my first time tasting infused salmon and I must say I really enjoyed it. It definitely needs to be removed from the fridge the 20 mins before using to get the full flavours. I would definitely recommend this flavour.

Tasty combination

Aquavit & Beetroot smoked salmon make a tasty and visually appealing partnership

Long live Erik!

Absolutely delicious. Will be ordering more.

We couldn't agree more, Carole! Erik is a firm favourite here at The Pished Fish and he's been around since the very beginning. We have no plans to retire him any time soon!

Cheers! Hermione

Great product

First time but def not the last loved it and the fact the salmon was thicker than the usual wafer thin slices you get in supermarket, looking forward to trying the others
