Buy Smoked Irish Organic Salmon from Master Smoker
Meet Anthony Creswell
Anthony Creswell's award winning Ummera Smokehouse situated in peaceful, rural West Cork, by the banks of the Argideen River, is a leading light in food production and environmentally friendly practices. This second generation artisan, who took over the smokehouse his father Keith started in the 70's, has strived to develop the original fish smoking business whilst taking on board the impact that fishing for wild salmon has had on river stocking levels in recent years. To this end, Anthony chose many years back to make the changeover to sourcing organic farmed salmon from Clare Island Co. Mayo, as stocks of wild salmon were in decline. This change preceded the wild salmon fishing ban that ensued in Ireland from 2007.
The fish Anthony smokes are the finest of specimens, organically farmed off the west coast of Ireland. Salmon are treated with tender loving care at the hands of this Master Smoker. In the cure, Anthony uses a mix of pure sea salt and organic raw cane sugar with his fish over wood chippings obtained from sustainable forests. Outside the smokery, a natural wetland and vermi-composting unit deals with waste from production. So this small eco-business produces fabulous artisan produce, thriving in the heart of its natural country surroundings, and doing little damage to the environment around it.
Anthony’s smoked salmon has received accolades from around the world and won numerous awards over the years.
It is available to purchase in 100gm, 200gm and 500gm sliced packs. It is also available in whole sides ranging from 800gms to 1.5kgs, either unsliced or sliced. The salmon is Filleted, pin boned and trimmed by hand. So ready to serve and enjoy!
