Christmasberry Honey Glazed Smoked Salmon

The holidays are a special time of year when we celebrate the things we love the most including family, friends and food. With the tradition of gift giving and entertaining a highlight of the season, what better way to show love and appreciation than with a gift that satisfies their heart as well as their palate. SeaBear, a premier purveyor of seafood and all things salmon, has a new offering this season along with traditional favorites.

This season enjoy the new and very special creation-Christmasberry Smoked Salmon. This smoked salmon is unique because prior to smoking, the wild, Alaskan salmon fillet is brined and then glazed with pure, organic honey from the Hawaiian Christmasberry Blossom. The honey, a beautiful light amber color, has a sweet slightly spicy flavor, the extraordinary result of the bees that forage for the Christmasberry nectar in lush forests along volcanic slopes of the Hawaiian Islands, collecting the nectar at its peak ripeness.

Fully cooked and smoked in traditional Northwest style, the Christmasberry Smoked Salmon is packed in SeaBear’s famous Gold Seal pouch, locking in all of the flavors and juices of this mouth-watering treat and requiring no refrigeration until the package is opened. As an added bonus, customers will receive a packet of the Christmasberry honey to brush on the fillet prior to serving for extra flavor. Offered only during the holiday season, this while-supplies-last delicacy comes in a majestic 2 pound size and will make a spectacular presentation on any holiday table, priced at $59.99.

For those looking for variety there is the Smoked Salmon Trio, a SeaBear exclusive and customer favorite, it offers a delicious way to taste, compare, and enjoy three varieties of wild Northwest salmon rich in heart healthy Omega 3 oils. The trio includes 6 oz. portions of each of the following: Smoked Sockeye, Smoked King and Smoked Keta salmon. Fully cooked and smoked in traditional Northwest style, this salmon is also packed in SeaBear’s famous Gold Seal pouch, so no refrigeration is required until opened. The retail cost is $35.99 but during the holidays it becomes an even better value with a holiday season price of just $29.99.
