Lean salmon by Forman and Field is subtly smoky and delicious.
Every salmon have both lean and fatty flesh. The further away from the skin, the leaner the meat becomes. We surveyed over 2000 customers to see which cut of meat they preferred and the result was a close 49:51 split. Consider it like you would the cuts of a chicken with breast or leg – there is no right or rang, it’s simply a matter of preference.
When you would head to your local deli for your supply of smoked salmon, you would usually be asked if you wanted ‘dry’ or ‘oily’ slices of salmon. With lean slices being from the top and fatty slices being from the bottom. At Forman and Field, we think it’s important that you get exactly what you are looking for which is why we’re the only smoked salmon producer that offers the option to choose fatty or lean salmon.
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.
