canned smoked salmon
Can anyone recommend a source for this? A recent house guest from Alaska brought a can that had been caught, smoked and canned by a local, apparently something all Alaskans do and it was a real treat. Would love to get some to give as a gift for Christmas.
If it's canned I assume it would have to be hot-smoked (aka kippered salmon), which can be very tasty but is quite different in flavor and texture from cold-smoked salmon.
Tweetie, you can order this from places like Russ & Daughters and Zabar's in NYC, but I suspect it will be shipped vacuum-packed rather than canned. And I'm pretty sure I've bought it in the past at The Butcherie in Brookline.

Thanks again Bob. I came across them too but ended up ordering from Wild Planet. They sell in bulk but let me buy 6 cans instead of the usual 12. Sounds promising, smoked out of the can in an actual smokehouse and no liquid smoke used for flavor which I guess some vendors use. Should be interesting...........
