Sally Barnes - Hot Smoked Albacore Tuna.

Originally made for Sally's daughters who didn’t like fish at the time, She developed a stratagem by cold smoking the tuna in an effort to pass it off as smoked bacon. Aside from the fact that this did indeed work, the new product created is uniquely remarkable, and one of the favourites here at the smokery.

Cold smoking means that the proteins do not denature, and the fats do not separate from the proteins which happen in the hot smoking process. This makes for delicious, firm, buttery textured fish with very light salt and a beautiful hum of beech smoke in the background.

Sliced thin and dipped into garlic and ginger shoyu, or chopped into cubes with a squeeze of lime, chopped parsley, capers and an egg yolk… fab! And of course, diced and fried for tuna carbonara.

Albacore is highly seasonal in Irish waters, appearing in late summer in large numbers and is caught by the local vessels of the southwest of Ireland.

 Unlike yellowfin and bluefin tuna which most of us recognise, albacore is white-fleshed, smaller than other species and there is a reasonable quota for the Irish fleet.

Product Weight: 108g.
