The exceptional quality of our Ducktrap Canadian traditional-style smoked salmon begins with fresh Atlantic Salmon fillets from Eastern Canada that are then cold smoked in Maine. They are dry brined, lightly trimmed, cold smoked in small batches and seasoned with specially blended spices. The result is a unique variety of thinly sliced smoked salmon, perfect to enjoy on a charcuterie plate or in sandwiches.
We draw from a mix of native Maine hardwoods and fruitwoods: cherry, apple, oak and maple. Smoking with this unique blend of four woods creates distinctly mild and delicate smoked products.
Our unique Ducktrap brine recipe has been perfected over 40 years. The combination of salt, cane sugar and high quality dried spices creates a palate-rich brine that is distinctly Ducktrap.
