You cannot beat the taste and velvety texture of real Scottish Smoked Salmon

Hot Smoked Salmon

Sutherland’s of Portsoy  are renowned for their range of Scottish Smoked Salmon.

The salmon come from fresh, fast-flowing waters and are fed on a natural diet that reflects their choice in the wild. This means a better texture and taste – before the traditional smoking process begins.

We work with quality suppliers, some of whom are monitored by the RSPCA and who hold Freedom Foods accreditation for care of their salmon……and we do care about our salmon! Only the best, carefully selected fish are used in the smoking process. This maintains our reputation for providing delicious smoked salmon to the highest standards – those set by our family.

The smoking process, which Alex Sutherland has developed over the years from his Great-Grandfather’s original smoked salmon recipe, is started as soon as possible after catch.

The process is crucial and still remains a family secret, but there are basically two stages.

The fish are prepared for the kiln by salting. At this stage the freshest fish are used and careful handling to preserve the texture and appearance is imperative.

During stage two the fish are placed in the kiln where smoke from burning oak whisky casks, caress and penetrate the salmon flesh to give that special award winning Gourmet’s Choice flavour.

No artificial chemicals or preservatives are used.

The combination of the freshest salmon, skill, experience and attention to detail, results in the production of the finest Scottish smoked salmon available.
