Smoked salmon

houndess Nov 9, 2012 09:16 AM

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.

      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

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

            I concur. Maybe they can vacuum seal it.

          World Market. Not too expensive either.
