Smoked salmon

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.

  1. World Market. Not too expensive either.

      1. re: twinwillow

        The smoked salmon at Deli News Cafe is so good - too bad it can't endure the voyage.

        1. re: Veggo

          I concur. Maybe they can vacuum seal it.

      2. Could call Jon at TJ's and see what he has! I am pretty sure he vacuum seals his products for sale at local markets when he can make it out!

        You would have to see about keeping it cold though

        1. 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.
