Nova lox or other smoked salmon

If you had to get a piece of smoked salmon - decent size, something we could eat for a while, where would you get it from? I am assuming mail order, shipping, etc..

Thx..- Grant

  1. I don't know where you live, but I would just go to my favourite fish seller and have them order it in.

    1. Any interest in making at home? It's really easy

        Yes, someday.. I'd like to try to some home smoking.. but for this, I am going to have to do mail-order. This is more for a Christmas gift thing for parents down in Florida, and being that I am travelling, I can't stuff a pound or two of smoked salmon the luggage.. I did search on there and find a previous thread, though, that spoke a lot about sites..

        1. A good fish store close to them is the best bet, but you can pick up decent frozen smoked salmon from a nearby Sam's or Costco. The pre-sliced slabs will last two days in the fridge, but the unsliced sides will go 3-4 days. Here is a mail order supplier of dry packs

          1. The best smoked salmon I have ever eaten comes from Pikes Place Fish Market in Seattle. i have bought it from many other places including many mail order places in Alaska and nothing comes close to theirs. Their only real competition was a small store on highway one near Half Moon Bay in California that sold amazing stuff but I don't know what it was called or if it is still there. Their classic Alderwood smoked is fabulous. As a matter of fact I had some tonight for dinner that I brought back with me from Seattle in October. Wonderful. They sell a three pound sampler that includes the Alderwood, Pepper and Belly Strip Jerkey. You're going to pay dearly because of the shipping costs but you won't be disappointed.
