Our Traditional Oak Smoked Salmon is sustainably sourced and made from fresh superior grade fillets of salmon, dry-cured on a bed of salt, without sugar, and gently cold-smoked over Welsh oak chips. All Black Mountains Smokery's Smoked Salmon Sides are available, expertly hand sliced or unsliced - ready for you as you require. Here's our super talented production manager Corinne expertly slicing one of our cold smoked salmon sides!

 A side of our  Traditional Smoked Salmon makes a fantastic present - for a birthday, Christmas or thank-you gift. Why not add a locally hand-crafted Oak Serving Platter to create the perfect gift? Our salmon platter is the ideal size for slicing and serving a whole side. Or click here for sliced packs of smoked salmon 100g, 200g and 400g

“A gentle aroma of oak combines well with the salmon. Perky coral colour, good texture, not at all greasy. Fabulous combination of the salmon and the oak - well judged. The smoke does not bully the fish at all. A skilled hand is at work here - balanced, the salt is spot on and there is a lingering flavour” Great Taste Awards 2023 - 2 Gold Stars

Our Smoked Salmon won Great Taste Awards in 2015, 2017, 2020 & 2023 as well as a coveted Welsh True Taste Award.

A side of Smoked  Salmon makes a wonderful addition to any buffet table. Jo recommends that you garnish with black pepper, lemon wedges and capers. For something a little more formal, why not try these Smoked Salmon Crostini? 


 Canapé Shells or Crostini if you prefer
 Creme fraiche or Mayonnaise
 Quails eggs - hard-boiled & quartered
 Dill sauce
 Sliced Smoked Salmon - slithered
Simply pile up the ingredients onto each Crostini or Canapé Shells starting with the creme fraiche or Greek Yoghurt, which acts a bit like glue! You can mix the Dill Sauce into the creme fraiche or yoghurt to save time. Garnish twist of Black Pepper or a sprinkle of Welshman's Caviar. Arrange on a large Oak Serving Platter alongside Smoked Salmon, wrapped in asparagus. 
These are a real treat, especially when you can pile them high with our Lumpfish or Wild Salmon Caviar, available seasonally. 

 I received ... the most delicious side of smoked salmon, sliced better than any I have ever come across before, it was so easy to serve.  And the packaging was equally superb, it ensured arrival in perfect condition.  Brilliant product and service, thank you

Philip Prettejohn, February 2024

 I just wanted to reach out and say that your smoked salmon is the best we have ever eaten !! It was absolutely beautiful as was the bacon. It was a real treat and we shall definitely be ordering more.

Victoria Ashton, December 2023

 Having skipped breakfast, I’m ready for a tasting of the cold-smoked salmon, which is sweet, oaky and melts in the mouth.

National Geographic Magazine, December 2023

 One of the UK’s best smokeries, based in Wales. It was the award-winning smoked chicken that drew us in first, closely followed by the smoked duck and fish – ingredients that are great to have on hand for impromptu salads, sandwiches & snacks of the highest order. The Taste For Two hamper (£59.75) includes award-winning oak smoked duck, salmon, chicken and cheddar, plus a jar of dill sauce (epic with smoked fish on blinis or rye bread for a quick canapé).

Thank you so much for pulling the stops out and getting all that lovely smoked salmon to us tout suite.

June 2020

Thank you for absolutely superb service, especially in such difficult times. I ordered salmon on Tuesday night, not really thinking there was any chance of delivery in time for our wedding anniversary on Saturday, but here it is - delivered first thing Thursday morning. My mouth is watering at the thought, and I know we are in for a feast on Saturday, even in lockdown with the rest of the family unable to join us. Thank you so much!

September 2020

Very neat and fresh looking salmon slices. A lightly smoked and clean aroma. A firm flesh that melted in the mouth, so creamy! A good level of smoke, not overpowering, allowing all the natural fish flavour to come through.

Great Taste Awards, 2020

Deep salmon pink with a beautiful glossy texture. Complex and pungent smoky aromatics on the nose of heather honey sweetness. Rich and indulgently buttery on the palate, it has a good structure and melts in the mouth with an elegant balance of flavour and a long and satisfying gentle smoke finish. Refined and sophisticated flavours par excellence.

Great Taste Awards, 2020

Generous slices of smoked salmon with gentle smoke on the nose. The salmon just melts in the mouth - buttery, sweet and tasty flesh with gentle back notes of smoked oak. You could eat this just on its own - nothing else needed - just deliciously tasty and perfectly balanced.

Great Taste Awards, 2020

The smoked salmon is absolutely outstanding and totally different from the supermarket fare. Even our teenagers noticed! And the service is second to none, personal, charming and very efficient - most impressive, particularly in these difficult times.

G Magnay, July 2020

I called in your shop whilst in Abergavenny at half term, I've got to say this is the nicest smoked salmon I've ever purchased, well done!

Sue Frezza, December 2018

I have tried smoked salmon from numerous sources over the years. I have found Black Mountain's salmon to be better than any. Highly recommended!

David Pollitt, November 2018

Delicious looking salmon just arrived on my doorstep! Thank you so much!

Katie Rockley, October 2018

I was with one of the recipients of your smoked salmon gifts on Saturday and they loved it - as much as I do!

Wonkie Hills, June 2018

The smoked salmon was wonderful..again the texture was so much better than other smoked salmon I have tried, and the taste was excellent!

Lisa Coleridge, April 2018

We thought the quality of your smoked salmon was outstanding and we shall certainly continue as a customer.

Henry Shaw, September 2017

Delicious firm-textured fish with a balanced saltiness and a delicate hint of oak.

Great Taste Awards, September 2017

Great texture and not at all oily. The curing and smoking let the salmon do the talking.
