We choose the most reputable salmon farms in Scotland to supply our salmon. We never use cheaper Norwegian fish. The salmon is sustainable and considered sushi grade (super fresh!) 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 texture and gives the salmon a more meaty texture. It is not greasy or slimy like some other smoked salmon. Erik The Red is infused with Linie aquavit, beetroot, star anise and juniper. Its is very lightly smoked over apple and beech wood for a very subtle smokey flavour. A dazzling sight! 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! A truly luxurious taste experience and one which will have you wishing everything was booze infused!

A winner

Erik the Red not only looks great, it has the fantastic flavour typical of all Pished Fish products.
The hand carved slices mean that you can actually taste the subtle infusion, so different from the more usual wafer thin slices of smoked salmon.
We bought our neighbours a small selection of smoked salmon as a Hogmanay present. They have since recommended Pished Fish to their friends and family as a ‘go to’ site when looking for something a bit different for gifts.
We look forward to a long and tasty relationship with Pished Fish. 🐟

Divine !!!!

Absolutely delicious again. Made my scrambled egg and toast really special.
Love the thickness of the Salmon and the flavour is beautiful.

Great taste and great colour.

Something different - great taste and great colour. Blame it on lockdown - we just ate it all ourselves!!

Thanks David! Much appreciated. Cheers, James
