Smoked Fish - How long does it stay fresh?
I buy only from Russ & Daughters. Upon asking, they say ok to store in refrigerator for one week. My suggestion is to insert each item in a ziploc bag unless already in a plastic sealed container.
My experience teaches me 3 things: 1-for best taste, consumer in less than 7 days--4-5 is best to avoid drying. 2-are you kidding but who can resist eating up the goodies in more than a few days? Perhaps the stuff wasn't great to start with--try R&D. 3-buy small portions and buy more often (try R&D smoked sea bass when available)
Is it vacuum wrapped?
According to the Acme website, smoked fish should be consumed within a week of opening the package.
I just finished off some (only wrapped in paper) that was in my fridge for two weeks.... it smelled fine, it tasted good (despite a slight loss of freshness) and I didn't die. But I bought this smoked salmon strait from the factory, so it was definitely fresh from the start.
