The Pished Fish is on a heartfelt quest to showcase salmon’s more audacious, heroic, booze-infused side, underlining the mighty salmon’s unrivalled capacity to pair majestically with best-in-class botanicals and alcoholic beverages before being gently smoked in small, thoughtful batches.
Everyone understands salmon’s ‘good for you’ credentials, but for too long salmon has been reluctant to openly exhibit a more devil-may-care persona Today Gilltong is yet another example of salmon kicking into the long grass its historical status as a noble fish that’s ‘big on theatre yet light on adventure.’
Gilltong (salmon jerky) is the latest arrival from The Pished Fish innovation stable, highlighting salmon’s untapped capacity to fill the role of indulgent nibble or anytime treat
Gilltong is a sumptuous halfway house between jerky and biltong, but made with smoked salmon. The Pished Fish team take prime fillets of smoked salmon, hand slice them thickly before marinading in teriyaki, honey, Tabasco sauce and black pepper. After marinading the slices are air-dried until chewy, succulent and ‘head swimmingly’ tender. It’s sweet, salty, a little bit spicy and oh so addictive! Perfect for snacking contains no booze whatsoever yet curiously pairs rather wonderfully with pale ale
