WHY CHOOSE HEDERMAN SMOKED WILD IRISH EEL
Frank Hederman is best known for his traditional cold smoked Irish salmon, but he has also developed a variety of luxurious options, including hot smoked eels.
The smoked eels are full of flavour and a true delicacy.
Our Silver Eels are from The Lough Neagh Fishermen’s Co-operative, caught in nets at the company weirs on the River Bann. The Co-operative also leaves passes unfished to allow a 40% escape to the Saragossa to spawn. They also reduce fishing periods for future sustainability.
The Silver Eels are brined whole and hot smoked using beech wood. We use beech instead of oak because of its milder tannins and subtlety. This results in a deliciously balanced smoked flavour.
“There's a top 10 of world-class delicacies, and this has got to be one of them. Along with things like, Tuscan virgin olive oil and Iberico ham … and caviar… this is the sort of thing I'm looking for wherever I go” Rick Stein about Hederman Smoked Eels, BBC - 2000.
Caught in nets at the company weirs – Lough Neagh - Northern Ireland.
