With 40 years of smoking tradition, Grants is one of the few remaining commercial smokehouses to continue the centuries-old craft of rope-hung smoked salmon.
With this award-winning product, they abandon all the cost-saving and conveniences of modern production methods and step back into the past. The result is an exceptional, distinct smoked salmon which we consider the best you can buy online in Hong Kong and around the world.
The hand-selected farmed salmon is delivered fresh twice a week from the free-flowing, clean, open waters off the Scottish Coast. The fillets are then prepared by hand for curing and allowed to rest. Using natural sea salt and sugar, they cure each fillet for up to 12 hours before carefully rinsing the fish. A rope is secured to the tail of each fillet and hung to mature for 24 hours before the smoking process begins. Oak whiskey barrels are slowly burnt in their open-fire, brick-built kiln.
The cool smoke is allowed to envelop the free-hanging fillets for up to 36 hours and is monitored carefully to ensure perfect temperature and humidity. With years of experience, the head smoker knows exactly when the salmon is ready to leave the smoker. The fish is then allowed to mature for a minimum of 48 hours to allow the exquisite buttery texture and strong but delicate smoke flavour to fully develop.
Due to the traditional methods used, this remarkable smoked salmon is produced in small batches. But what else would you expect from a smoked salmon which can proudly sit alongside the finest food and drinks from across the planet?
Frozen to preserve quality and freshness, the smoked salmon is shipped to Hong Kong in a vacuum-sealed pack. Buy online now at Biltong Chief and enjoy next-day delivery.
Smoked salmon is a delicacy that can be served in a multitude of ways. One popular option is to serve it cold as an entrée, with some accompaniments such as herb vinaigrette and capers. Other common preparations include putting smoked salmon on toast or a bagel with cream cheese or in salads. For those who want a more stunning heartier presentation, it can also be added to pasta dishes, stir-fries and chowders. The salty flavour of the salmon typically goes well with light vegetables like dill, cucumber and arugula.
