Our smoked salmon fillets are some of our most popular offerings. Large enough to feed several people or pull together a larger meal spread, these fillets are true showstoppers. The secret to our smoked salmon recipe is simple: We don’t try to hide the salmon’s flavor. We prepare our wild-caught and sustainably sourced salmon fillets with a bit of sea salt and brown sugar, then let the hardwood smoke do its thing. The result is a perfect balance of sweetness and salt. Whether you’ve never tried a smoked fillet or have been eating them all your life, you’ll find the best-tasting smoked salmon here at Lummi Island Wild.
