About smoked fish

Smoked fish :
Sometimes considered a luxury product, appreciated at the end of the year celebrations, smoked fish has now become a common consumer product.

Salmon, trout, eel, herring, haddock (haddock), halibut, sturgeon… all are cleaned, prepared in fillets, salted, desalted and then dried.

The smoking is either artisanal or industrial. The big difference lies among other things in the quantity of fish smoked at the same time, much more important in industry; the smoking time, much longer in the craft; and the selection of sawdust to carry out the smoking, the different species of wood scenting the fish in a variable way (beech, birch, oak, etc.).
