    Default Smoked wild atlantic salmon on sale

    From this weekend Financial Times:

    "8 Sally Barnes Wild Atlantic smoked salmon

    2019 marks 40 years since Sally Barnes started smoking wild Atlantic salmon at her Woodcock Smokery in West Cork. One of the great pioneers of Irish gastronomy, she works only with wild fish, and her salmon, cold-smoked over beech wood, has won a host of awards. Forget the lemon wedges that mask the oiliness of farmed fish: serve it instead with thickly buttered soda bread and a glass of champagne.

    From 45 for 250g, woodcocksmokery.com."

    Interesting ...

    From her website:

    Caught in the south of Ireland by traditional 5th generation Salmon fishing family, just as they head upriver from the ocean, they are at their absolute best eating. With full belly fat, bright, silver scales and torpedo like form, they have not yet begun to expend energy by morphing into river fish as they are fresh from their epic Atlantic adventure.

    Will this be from (legal) netsmen?

    Perhaps a call to BIM in Killybegs by someone local (!) who's seen this stuff may clear this up?

    Have a look at Woodcock Smokery's site - by the fat striations in the steak it looks like Irish salmon are doing very well at sea !
