  1. Hi Ole

    I saw you this morning on Saturday Kitchen & loved the way you were using traditional Norwegian smoking methods for your Salmon. I know you smoke the salmon to order. I was wondering how much a side of salmon is? Or what is the smallest amount you sell? I gather that you sell to top restaurants in Europe as well as London, but I would love to try some It looks delicious. I will understand if you don’t supply the small domestic buyer.

    My name is Deborah Coles & I look forward to hearing from you.
