Hello Chowhound Board,
I will be traveling to India soon. A friend has asked for smoked salmon. Where do I get smoked salmon in a vacuum-sealed pack, or any other packaging that stands up well to long travel? Between buying and delivery,
I am looking at a difference of 10 days.
Although I still think the OP's best bet is an already sealed package of a side of smoked salmon at Costco, There is also Becker's Seafood at Farmer's Market, Shed #2.
Becker sells great fresh seafood and his (fresh, not previously frozen) Scottish smoked salmon is killer good! Especially for only $17.99lb. I would recommend the OP spend a little time with Becker, taste his salmon and see if he can seal an airtight package of it for travel. He can always put it in a box with dry ice. Believe me, Becker's has some of the BEST smoked salmon I've had anywhere in Dallas!
He's usually there Wed-Sun. CALL FIRST! To make sure.
Regardless, all Chowhounders should visit him. He sells FRESH, HUGE 8-12 whole head on shrimp that he brings up from the gulf himself every week.
