All salmon have lean and fatty flesh. The closer you get to the skin, the fattier it becomes. Some people prefer fatty, some prefer lean. In fact, when we surveyed over 2000 customers about their preference, the result was a near even 49:51 split. Think of it like chicken breast or leg; there is no right or wrong.
Back when you’d visit your local deli to purchase smoked salmon, you’d be asked if you wanted “dry”, lean slices from the top, or “oily”, fatty slices from the bottom. We think it’s important that you receive exactly what you’re looking for, which is why H. Forman & Son is now the only smoked salmon producer that offers its customers the option to choose between lean-only or fatty-only packs.
Lean smoked salmon has a slightly saltier and smokier flavour and a drier texture than Fatty smoked salmon.
All Forman’s smoked salmon is hand-sliced the day we dispatch it and is presented in beautiful gift packaging.
