Mail order smoked salmon

steakman55 Nov 26, 2007 06:12 PM

Since my previous source of smoked Scottish salmon does not exist anymore, can anyone share with me a good source of Scottish or Scottish-style smoked salmon? Have to be mail order as I live in the culinary sticks. Thanks

    I don't know where you live, but if it is anywhere in Canada, try the smoked salmon at www.blackbear.net. This is a Native-owned company on the Queen Charlotte Islands. I don't know if their salmon is what you would call "Scottish-style" and they are undeniably expensive. but, IMHO, once youi have tried their smoked salmon, everything else is just so much sushi.

      Best place I found (so far) for mail order salmon is Gerard & Dominique (http://www.gourmetseafoods.com)....good prices that include shipping...located in Seattle area....

      william-sonoma or dean & deluca both offer various types of smoked salmon, including scottish style, they can be a little pricey, but the quality is there. whole foods carries it as well, in smaller pre-packaged quantity.

        The best smoked salmon I ever had came from Willy Krauch's in Tangier, Nova Scotia. Willy's salmon has rated highly as long as I can remember. Here's a link from 2006 that discusses places in Canada that offer smoked salmon. Willy's is #1.

        I'm pretty sure Willy ships to the US (they get a lot of American tourists in Nova Scotia) so give them a call on their 800 number (listed in the link above).

          I had Krauch's salmon and it is v. good but when you factor in the shipping costs it gets super expensive...hence the reason that G&D is my choice...

          These guys are in Astoria, Oregon.
          What does "Scottish Style" entail?

            Are they the ones with the store near the foot of the bridge? Whenever I pass through Astoria I gotta stop and get some. Great stuff!

              I have had fabulous fish from Tracklements, I highly reccommend them. I've had Scottish (called Highland) but the double-smoked and pecan-smoked are also excellent. He has some other types as well--Miso/Mirin and hot smoked. I've never mail ordered from him as I am lucky enough to live only 20 minutes away from his store. Not sure how bad the shipping is, but the fish is great.
