Hot-smoked salmon in the DC area?

  • 5
  • Share

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where "smoked salmon" referred to a product in which the fish was brined, air-dried slightly, and hot-smoked, resulting in firm, flaky-textured fish. Now, living in DC, all I can find is stuff like Nova Lox, which, is soft, moist, thinly-sliced, and so forth. Can Northwest-style hot-smoked salmon be bought in the DC area, and, if so, where would I go to get it?

  1. Whole Foods carries it at the holidays. Sea Bear brand if I recall correctly.

    1. what you are referring to is kippered salmon. you can get it at kosher mart in rockville, shalom in wheaton and I think at Balducci's in Bethesda

      1. Try Wegmans or Whole Foods. But its never going to be remotely as good as what you can get out there so I ship mine from Pikes Place Fish Market in Seattle. Its worth the cost.

        1. Thanks for the tips, all. Whole Foods did, indeed, have some, but it didn't look that great, and was expensive for what you got, so I ended up deciding to smoke my own (it's smoking on the back deck as we speak). Ellen, had I done a better job of thinking ahead, I probably would have ordered, so thanks for the suggestion as to where to look for next time.

            you can also have it shipped to you from the upper west side iconic smoked fish store, Barney Greengrass the king of sturgeon. google and go to their website.
