“We have chosen the Maldon Cure smoked salmon because it is the perfect blend of succulent, tender yet firm texture combined with an incredible depth of flavour.

“A really nice product, cured well, not too sweet with the lovely fragrance of dill, one of the best Gravlax I’ve tasted. The cut is good which gives it a wonderful texture,” Mitch Tonks, Great British Foods Awards 2022 Judge, Founder of Rockfish and Cateys 2022 Group Restauranteur of the Year.
