Norwegian Salmon Fillets | 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 Fillets (approx. 1.9kg - 2.2kg per fillet)
Your 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.
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.

My 1st time buying off the site and was amazed to see the product delivered same day, even though i ordered after 11am. The product itself was fantastic, probably the freshest salmon i have ever had. Already recommended it to friends, family and colleagues. Will definitely purchase from then again
Top notch, service as well as freshness.
Perfect fillet. Really beautiful. As good as it gets for me. Of course, it is a personal decision, but I eat Greenfish salmon totally raw for breakfast, and equally seared for dinner. Then cold on sandwiches. Perfect for me, I ask no more. In these photos, I sliced two nice pieces of the fillet and flash seared them on super heat skin side down (skin is probably the best part once crisp). Loved it!!
Perfect fillet. Really beautiful. I could warble on, but will not bother as I have lived in a location where I get stunning salmon - ten thousand kilometres away. So I will simply say that this is as good as it gets for me. Of course, it is a personal decision, but I eat Greenfish salmon totally raw for breakfast, and equally seared for dinner. Then cold on sandwiches. Perfect for me, I ask no more. In these photos, I sliced two nice pieces of the fillet and flash seared them on super heat skin side down (skin is probably the best part once crisp). Loved it!!
Quick delivery, best fish, great experience. Five star!
Very happy with our 2kg of salmon - fresh, chunky and tasty. Thanks for excellent service and product
Hi Ryan My (our) experience was FANTASTIC! Really loved the quality, delivery presentation and most of all the delicious fish we have been eating as Sashimi starters every night. Best Regards, Garth
My (our) experience with Greenfish was FANTASTIC! Really love the quality, delivery presentation and most of all the delicious fish we have been eating as Sashimi starters every night. And one night where we simply couldn’t stop and had Salmon sashimi for starters, mains and dessert. I will be placing our replacement order shortly. Garth Kent
Excellent whole fillet in single package. Beautiful fresh quality and will be eaten in fresh portions and part cling-wrapped for freezing (salmon freezes well in my experience, including for sushi). I had raw salmon for breakfast this morning with some of the usuals (avocado, celery, camembert, seed-loaf, and a squeeze of lemon with soy sauce and mixed black and red peppers). Delicious. Also superb for the braai, as well as baking, searing in a pan with crisp skin or otherwise. Great quality!
Finding Greenfish online has been one of the best things that has come out of this pandemic. Your delivery has been prompt, the fish fresh and tasty. Every delivery that I have had has been good.
Fresh and delicious, as always!
Great, simple to pay and the product was delivered really quickly. Well done Greenfish.
The salmon was fresh and tasty. The portions were wrapped and beautifully packed in the icebox, inviting presentation! Good price too. Thank you very much for a most satisfying buy. I will surely order from you again.
We got the delivery on the same day and made grilled salmon for my wife's birthday dinner. The salmon was fresh, flaky and flavoursome. Great quality and great taste!
As superb as always
This is my second time ordering the Norwegian Salmon, and it will definitely not be the last. This Salmon is incomparable to anything we can buy locally, it truly is in a class of its own!
Fresh, well packaged, perfectly cleaned, and delicious! The whole ordering process and the way it was packaged and delivered was superb. Will definitely order again.
The salmon was very fresh and tasted delicious. We cut up what we did not eat into portion sizes and put it in the freezer and will enjoy another day. Delivery and packaging excellent.
