Canadian-inspired, rich in quality and candied to perfection, The Can-D Food Co. has launched Britain’s first commercially available premium candied smoked salmon.
Handcrafted in East London, The Can-D Food Co. uses the finest sustainable Scottish-farmed salmon and a traditional Canadian First Nation preservation method that involves a combination of curing, brining and smoking. The result is an addictive, uniquely flavoured, savoury-sweet, satisfyingly chewy treat unlike anything ever tasted before.
Niall Carroll, founder of The Can-D Food Co., first discovered the delicacy whilst holidaying in Vancouver, British Columbia, where salmon has been a staple food source for its coastal First Nation for thousands of years.
To preserve the catch, the First Nation tribes would smoke the salmon and combine salt and maple syrup to create a delicious, confectionery-like treat to eat throughout the long, harsh winter months.
Upon returning to the UK, Niall wanted to share his candied smoked salmon revelation with Britain and spent years testing and developing the perfect recipe with a backyard cardboard smoker.
Today, The Can-D Food Co. takes the finest sustainable Scottish-farmed salmon and slices it against the grain. It is dry-cured and brined in a special mix of salt, honey and pure maple syrup. It’s then air-dried and smoked over whisky barrel oak, creating golden strips of candied smoked salmon that are gluten free, low in saturated fat and packed with protein, zinc, Vitamin D and Omega 3 fatty acids.
The candied smoked salmon is available nationwide in 100g packs for £10. Available to purchase via The Can-D Food Co. webshop, and in London at The Fin & Flounder in Broadway Market and the Camden Grocer in Stables Market. More stockists to be announced soon.
