Description

Our whole salmon are ideal for special occasions, ramping up the sense of theatre when presented at the dinner table. The flesh yields a silky texture, bold flavours and an array of nutritional benefits.

Rich in B vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids, salmon used to be the preserve of the wealthy, but thanks to the rise of aquaculture everyone can now enjoy this extraordinary fish all year round.

Buying whole fish opens up a world of possibilities for the home cook.

If you have a fish kettle then you can poach the salmon in a court-bouillon. Due to the size of the fish, though, most recipes involve baking it in the oven – en croute, encased in puff pastry; baked in a salt crust; or simply baked with herbs and lemon juice. Whatever recipe you choose to follow, placing a carefully cooked whole salmon in the centre of the dinner table is the starting point for a communal dining experience everyone present can cherish.

Our salmon weigh between 3kg and 6kg.

Storage

Whole salmon are best eaten as fresh as possible. Keep refrigerated between 0˚C and 5˚C and consume within three days of delivery. If freezing, do so on the day of delivery and consume within two months. We recommend defrosting overnight in the fridge, placing the salmon in a colander over a bowl.

How We Package Your Fish

1. First we vacuum pack individual fish portions (if the fillets are small then we will pack them in pairs).
2. Each portion is then weighed and clearly labelled.
3. We add frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel, to a polystyrene box.
4. We pack your order so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.
5. We seal the box with packing tape and hand it to our courier, who will deliver it to you within 24 hours (or 48 hours if you live in the Scottish Highlands).
