Sweet Chilli Gilltong **NEW**
Sushi grade Scottish salmon
Medium oak smoke
Marinated in Single Variety Chilli Jam
Sweet, salty, and a little spicy! I use my friend Nicola's sweet chilli jam (it's the best in the world, check out her company here)
"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, Sweet chilli jam (Fireflame chillies, Cider Vinegar, Natural Pectin)
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 sweet chilli jam. 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 a beer, but you can choose your own tipple or dare I see it even use it as a protein "shot" after some exercise - steady on now!
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

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 currently can't deliver 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 which at current point in time (early 2022) are having a lot of difficulties reaching the destination on time too. We'll keep trying sporadically though.
First time I have tried it, and I am a convert to it, I ate it as a quick snack, but this would be great on so many things, scrambled eggs, canapés, even finishing off a pasta dish, certainly will purchase again.
Really found it lovely
I know right???? It is gone way too fast.
I really enjoy the taste and texture of your new product Sweet Chilli Gilltong and fortunately for me there is only myself who eats fish in my house. So consequently I eat this Sweet chilli Gilltong as a treat when I'm watching a good movie. Great snack food thankyou.
Well that is just a bonus - more for you!
So glad that you enjoyed it.
Really enjoyed the sweet chilli flavour and I'm not usually a fan of sweet chilli. These guys know their stuff and I figured it was worth a try, and indeed it was.
Thank you for the feedback Jeanette. It is always nice to get feedback on new flavours.
