From select organic farms, these salmon are raised totally organically, no chemicals, antibiotics, or medications and fed with only organic food. Our Organic Salmon has evolved with today's marketplace specifically to fulfill the unqualified perfection that nature intended - the unsurpassable 100% organic salmon. Nothing less than the absolute best is nurtured to maturity in some of the most remote salmon farm sites in the world, situated within the most pristine waters along magnificent and rugged coastline, windswept and storm tossed for much of the year.
The word Balik is Russian, literally meaning, the best part of the fish. At Catsmo, we call it tenderloin or center cut. The quality is superior because the thick flesh of the fillet absorbs the salt and smoke to produce the most harmonious blend of flavors and silky texture, which melts in your mouth. Very lightly smoked, buttery, sweet, and meltingly rich within, the tenderloin cut was originally created for Russian Tsars. It is truly perfect in every way. Tenderloins are typically served sashimi style, cut in thick, oval-shaped slices. This smoked masterpiece is often enjoyed with some caviar and crisp brut champagne.

Not as perfect as our Gold Label but our Nova is perfect when price matters. Slightly drier than our Gold Label, this salmon is farm raised in Chile. As it is cured and smoked using the same recipe as our other salmons, some may prefer this variation. Perfect for large banquets.
This buttery salmon is scotch cured and smoked using oakwood, as opposed to fruitwood. "This Scottish smoked salmon features the most subtle and haunting flavors I've ever experienced in a side of salmon. Salt and smoke, both low key, were in perfect balance of course, but there's a sweetness here, a hint of vanilla, that is simply extraordinary. It didn't taste like scotch whiskey, but it sure tasted like something great."

Our Gold Label is what made Catsmo what it is today. With its rich, buttery texture and sweet lacing of fruit-wood smoke, it accounts for 80% of our sales. Smoked with the perfect blend of apple and cherry woods, our salmon is praised for its delicate smoked flavor and silky texture. Our salmon comes from the best farms located in the farthest, remotest regions of the icy Northern Atlantic. We receive daily deliveries flown in directly from the farms; more importantly, the salmon we use has never been frozen, giving it an amazingly silky texture, and rich, deep orange color.
