Norwegian Salmon Fillet | Fresh Fish Box | Cultivated | 2kg
FROM THE FJORDS TO YOUR TABLE
A delicious, versatile fish with its distinctive pink flesh, the Norwegian salmon is known for its oily texture and distinctive aromatic flavour which lends itself to anything from sashimi to the braai. Our salmon is sourced from farms in the Norwegian fjords with their cold, clear and pristine waters. The salmon are allowed to grow at their own pace and are harvested when they reach maturity after 12 – 18 months.
1x Norwegian Salmon Fillet (approx. 1.9kg - 2.2kg per box)
Norwegian Salmon Fillet will arrive fresh after pin bones have been removed and the fish is scaled by the Greenfish team. Simply store in your fridge and use at your leisure (up to 5 days). For home freezing, freeze on the day of arrival, and use within 3 months.
Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.
Our Norwegian salmon is cultivated according to stringent regulations which ensure that this fish has a lower carbon footprint than both beef and pork. The farms are found in environmentally suitable locations, and the population is maintained at 2.5% salmon to 97.5% water to ensure the fish are not overcrowded. No routine antibiotics are used on this salmon and up to 70% of feed is made from vegetable sources. To further offset carbon emissions due to transport, Greenfish commits to plant one tree for every ten boxes of salmon sold.

Quick and Easy Gravlax
Gravlax is known for being the luxury food that is the easiest to prepare as this recipe from The Fishwife demonstrates. You will need:
- 1 x Greenfish Norwegian Salmon Fillet
- 1/4 cup aquavit, or vodka
- 1/3 cup fine sea salt
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup coarsely chopped dill
- Cut the fish in half for two equal pieces
- Rinse the salmon fillet and pat dry.
- Drizzle the aquavit or vodka evenly over the salmon.
- In a small bowl combine the salt, sugar and pepper.
- Place 1/6th of the salt and sugar mixture in a dish and place the first fillet in the dish skin side down.
- Spread a third of the curing mixture over the fillet and do the same for the second fillet.
- Sprinkle the dill on the flesh side of both fillets.
- Now place the second fillet on top of the first skin side up.
- Spread the remaining curing mix over the skin of the second fillet.
- Cover with plastic wrap and place a cutting board on top weighed down by a few cans.
- Place in the fridge for 12 hours
- After 12 hours remove the fish and drain the excess juices, and flip both fish over so the skin up fillet is now skin down and vice versa.
- Then repeat step 10 and 11.
- The longer you leave the fish the more cured it will be, as a rule of thumb 24 hours is a light cure, 36 hours is a medium cure and longer results in a heavily cured fish.

Amazing quality salmon for the price and delivered fresh :)
A wonderful (somewhat guilty) treat
I feel guilty about indulging in food that is transported across the globe, but I do so enjoy the occasional treat of salmon. And such a lovely thick side! A hefty middle cut makes for exquisite gravadlax (such a luxury, so easy to make!). Then there is still plenty left for some steaks and the endlessly useful offcuts. (At the risk of raising unwarranted expectations, I just want to add that the stated weight of 2kg was wildly conservative in my case.)
Great product. Excellent service!
I will definitely be back again.
