Judges comments

"A Wonderful looking fish with a fantastic texture. The texture is moist without any oiliness. We love the smoky flavour coming through so beautifully, with a real sweetness. The salt level is perfect all the Judges went back for more...simply delicious."

"A very cleanly presented salmon, the fish is creamy and buttery, a light smoke, a good fish at the end and overall a well balanced and handled piece of salmon"

Ballyhack Smokehouse Smoked Irish Organic Salmon, ** Great Taste 2017.

Judges Comments

"A lovely looking piece of fish. It has a lovely texture, really moist without being oily. The salmon flavour come through wonderfully before the smokey notes come through. The smoking level and flavour are just perfect. It has a real sweetness and the smoking has enhanced the flavour of the salmon rather than dominated it."

"A good level of smoke, and well judged salt, the texture has a great mouthfeel - the bite is very good. We liked that this fish was so very well prepared. The fish lingers on the palate."'
