Gravad as in grave, and lax as in 'what they call salmon in Scandinavia'. So gravad lax means ’salmon from the grave’ - or salmon buried in the ground, for that’s how this technique was first implemented oooh about 5,000 years ago, with the special ingredient of huge quantities of dill to act as a sort of coffin around the salmon. The dill ’cured’ the salmon and thus preserved it. Making gravad lax these days no longer requires a spade, but it still tastes delicious. Mustard & dill sauce is a favourite dressing for this fish, available in most good supermarkets. 200g packs.

Buying Guide
Price per kilo £56.00/kg

 (Based on our price for 1 pack. Multi-pack prices are lower.)

The following is a general buying guide for our complete smoked salmon range:

  • Serving guide - 50-75g starter or 100-150g main 
  • Cold smoked / hot smoked - Cold smoked salmon is the universal version. Hot smoked is less well known – at the same time as being smoked, it was also cooked. Hot smoked doesn’t come in thin slices. But it crumbles into nice flakes.
  • Typical freezing date – 6 months before despatch
  • Typical Best Before date♦ – 6 months after despatch
  • In winter months, we allow FishRJumpin and Premium smoked salmon to go by mail. Smoking is an effective form of preservation so these packs can cope with 48 hours out of the fridge during the winter. You can still store in your freezer, although smoked salmon will keep for 10 days in your fridge. Other kinds of smoked salmon are not suitable for despatch by mail, even in the winter.

 

♦ Please note that best before dates are not expiry dates. Frozen fish does not go off on its best before date. Detectable deterioration in taste will begin, yet it will remain perfectly palatable for several more months. Nevertheless, ideally you should eat our frozen fish within three months of receiving it. The best before date refers to industrial storage which is colder and more effective than home storage.
