Hederman’s smoke house produces delicious hot smoked salmon, which come with all the characteristics of barbecued food. The sides are smoked over hot embers, and then held in a smoke-filled kiln for wonderful flavour. Although they are ready to eat, the smoky flavours can be enhanced by placing in foil on the barbecue to re-heat. For those who don’t mind bones, whole mackerel works this way too - the connoisseur's choice and incredibly succulent. Or, you can choose the very practical fillets of mackerel, topped with a choice of herbs and spices. Hederman’s also produces an array of homemade pâtés and salads for grazing ahead of your summer feast.
