Our king salmon live in cold, mountain-fed lakes, where they are farmed sustainably in a low-density environment. The ultra-clean waters of the New Zealand Southern Alps, low stocking densities and remote location keep the fish naturally healthy without the need for antibiotics, hormones, or GMOs, so it’s safe for the whole family.
Freshwater king salmon has the highest oil content of all salmon breeds, resulting in a greater concentration of healthy omega-3s. In addition to being a rich source of healthy fats, king salmon also contains a good amount of protein, while still being low in carbohydrates, making it an ideal component of a keto diet.
Aoraki Smokehouse uses a traditional Scottish method of smoking to produce the finest quality smoked salmon. The smoking process is long and slow, infusing the king salmon with a rich oak flavour, while retaining its smooth and silky texture.
Try our cold-smoked salmon slices on a wholemeal bagel slathered with cream cheese, or in a sumptuous smoked salmon carbonara.
Our frozen cold-smoked salmon slices come in a handy 200g vacuum pack to seal in the freshness.
