What is Canadian smoked salmon?
Canada is home to many salmon runs including five species of Pacific salmon.
These remarkable creatures hatch in fresh water and swim to the sea for most
of their adult lives, before returning to spawn, sometimes after many years,
to the very stream where they themselves hatched.
Salmon have provided a healthy feast for people and for many wild creatures in Canada.
Cheena's salmon is truly a taste of Canada.
How is Cheena Smoked Retort Salmon made?
Cheena's retort smoked salmon is processed slightly different from our lox smoked salmon. After hand filleting,
brining and traditionally cold smoked for 8 to 10 hours, the carefully selected salmon is placed in a gold foil pouch
and hot smoked or "cooked" for about 3 hours in its own natural juices.
This product is truly unique in process and taste. There are no additives, preservatives or coloring agents used. This
product is high in protein, low in cholesteral and rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids. And it tastes great!
Please enjoy this world-class delicacy by simply opening the foil pouch, drain and reserve the natural juices and
carefully slide the fillet onto a platter. Garnish it with parsley, capers, lemon and onion slices; put on bread crackers;
or use your imagination by using it over pasta, in salads, sandwiches or pates... An unopened pouch will keep
for 3 years at room temperature which obviously makes it great for travel.
What are the different kinds of Cheena Retort
Cheena Smoked Sockeye, King and Pink Salmon are made with premium
raw material, rich in colour and natural oils. This product is simply smoked and
lightly salted using seasalt before being sealed and cooked in its own natural juice.
Maple Glazed Retort Smoked Salmon is made by adding a small amount of
pure Canadian maple syrup to the fillet of smoked salmon just before it is sealed
Double Smoked Maple Glazed Indian Candy Retort, made by the same process
but a small amount of pure Canadian maple syrup is added to the fillet of smoked salmon
just before it is sealed and cooked. Based on a traditional food of Canada's West Coast
aboriginal people, the resulting flavour has a slightly sweet edge with a mild maple finish.
This 100% natural fillet of smoked salmon is cooked and ready to serve.
Unopened and undamaged it will keep without refrigeration for about 3 years.
