Our smoked salmons come from Carlos Piernas of Carpier, an extremely well regarded Spanish producer of cold smoked seafood, confits, and more. This salmon is sourced from the Faroe Islands, Norway, and Scotland, where clean waters and consistently frigid temperatures provide perfect conditions for healthy, fatty fish.
For the pine cone smoked salmon, a custom, hand-built smoker is utilized to ensure that smoke passes over the fish only once, preventing any acrid flavors from developing and upholding the cleanest, most refined flavor profile we have ever encountered in smoked seafood.
Far from the average lox for bagels, this salmon has an ultra-silky, buttery consistency that melts at the edges but remains fresh and firm in the center. It is similar to eating high-quality sashimi, and we recommend enjoying it similarly - on its own, or laid atop rice. This particular selection is cured in vodka and beetroot, imparting a bright, dynamic complexity that rewards elegant, minimal accompaniment.
