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!
With the inability to give you a sample like we would at our market stall we offer a money back guarantee on any products you don't like! If you're a smoked salmon lover, and not afraid to try something a little different, we're sure you're our kind of customer. If you really don't like it we'll refund you in full. Can't say fairer than that!
Chilled Delivery Guarantee
With our no quibble guarantee we will refund or replace any products that don't arrive with you in perfect condition.
Please allow up to 3-5 business days for delivery at the moment as everything is being made fresh to order to keep up with demand (June 2022) We make our smoked salmon fresh each week. Most smaller pack sizes (100g and 200g) we hold some stock of and will despatch as quick as possible which is the same for our Taster and Gift packs. For larger sizes (half and whole sides) we will slice these in the week and deliver on the coming Friday (e.g order Tuesday morning, will be with you Friday) If you need it more quickly, please pop us an email (we're very friendly) and we'll do our best to get it out to you sooner, or offer the same weight in smaller pack sizes. If you're not sure, don't hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org and if you have any special requirements or need to hold delivery until a later date, please state these in the notes section in the cart or at checkout.
Northern Ireland, Highlands and Islands
We sadly can no longer offer delivery to Northern Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Due to the nature of our products we are unable to reliably ship goods to these places in a timely and safe manner whereby they are still chilled on arrival. We have been getting a lot of lost and late parcels and a lot of wastage.
For existing customers in these locations, please get in touch and we can advise on the costs of Royal Mail special delivery to your location.
How does my smoked salmon get delivered?
Your order will be packaged in insulated packaging filled with ice packs which are tested to keep the products chilled for up to 48 hours. We use DPD to transport the products on an overnight service, so the product should always arrive chilled as though it had been in a fridge. The insulated packaging is either compostable, re-usable or recyclable.
Do I need to be home when it is delivered?
If you're not home we ask the courier to leave the package either with a neighbour or in a safe place. It is always preferable to have someone around to sign for the delivery though, so an address where someone is available (home or work) would help.
How much does delivery cost?
Delivery free when you spend £50, or below that £5.95 and is applied at checkout, and is based on your cart total after any discounts.
Where is the salmon from?
We source our salmon through Billingsgate fish market, selecting only the freshest Scottish salmon from farms with a focus on responsible farming. We use wild salmon by special order only, please sign up to our emails to hear when this is possible.
What is the use by date?
All our cold smoked salmon and trout is packaged with a minimum of 23 days shelf life. The only exception is our hot smoked salmon and paté which has a shorter use by date - 14 days. We will never send out any packs of smoked salmon with less than 5 days remaining on its use by date, or pâté with less than 3 days remaining.
Can you freeze it?
Yes, all our products are suitable for freezing. Please freeze on day of arrival.
I have a discount code - where do I use it?
There is a small box in the cart section where you review your order that asks for your discount code. Please enter it here and the discount will be automatically applied.
How much should I buy per person?
We recommend 50g per person as a portion. Really love smoked salmon? Double it!
Do you do wholesale?
Yes indeed - we include some of the finest food-halls in the land as stockists. If you'd like to join them please get in touch here
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
Love the flavour, just enough to taste but not too much to obscure the flavour of the fish.
We've never had a bad thing from the Pished Fish. Everything is delicious. This Sweet Chilli Gilltong *is* delicious. So why haven't I given it 5 stars? The delivery was quick, the customer service is excellent, the product is lovely. I gave it 4 starts JUST because the original gilltong flavour is BETTER. But, you know, both are awesome.
That's fair enough. Glad that you still enjoyed the new flavour. We love the original too.
We discovered The Pished Fish just after the first lockdown. You have been an absolute godsend to us; we love all of your products, never disappointed. Please keep doing what you are doing…
Thank you so much Janet! It must have been a great way to help with the seemingly non-stop lockdowns.
Having tried the teriyaki gilltong I saw the sweet chilli and tried that aswell.
Wow absolutely love it, great to pick at especially on a lazy afternoon with a cold beer
That sounds like a perfect way to enjoy it! Glad that you liked it.
Glad you enjoyed it.
