Smoked salmon is prepared by curing whole sides of salmon with salt and smoking them. Catsmo smokes using two types of smoking processes, cold-smoked and hot-smoked. Cold-smoked salmon is smoked at low temperatures, has a milder smoky flavor, while hot-smoked salmon’s consistency is flaky with a moderately drier texture than cold-smoked.
A Word About Storing Smoked Salmon.
Our salmon arrives fresh, never frozen, and is smoked within hours of being received. Once smoked, it is shipped out to our customers. We don't freeze or store our smoked salmon long-term. All of our smoked salmon is vacuum-packed to keep it fresh until you open it. Unopened it can be kept in the refrigerator for 21 days. Once opened, it should be consumed within 7 days. If wrapped properly, unused smoked salmon can be frozen for up to 3 months. Enjoy!
SPRING 2020 and going forward: We are building an expansion onto the smokehouse facility and due to space constaints some of our smoked salmon flavors are only available in 4oz units or sides.
