This is a large 1/2 portion (also referred to as loin) of the whole skinless fillet of the finest Tasmanian salmon (Atlantic Salmon) with the bones removed. The fillet piece is very long - so you might need to cut it into 2-3 smaller fillet portions and cook them individually. This size of fillet easily feeds the whole family and is best recommended for sashimi or sushi - yes you can eat our salmon raw. The skin and the bones have been completely removed, so you have a clean piece of the finest fillet loin only. Other than sashimi or sushi, this piece is recommended for cooking in the oven or for steam cooking by wrapping the individual pieces in aluminum foil together with vegetables and olive oil.

Tasmania is home to some of the best salmon in the world, but there’s one brand that caught our eyes and we have selected. They're leading the charge in delivering premium salmon by doing the little things right. We present to you the highest and purest quality of them all: Salmon from the Huon Aquaculture. Huon Salmon (named after the Huon Valley in Tasmania) is Australias only RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) approved salmon - that is Australia's most trusted animal welfare organization. Huon Salmon is sustainably off-shore farmed without the use of growth-promoting hormones or subtherapeutic use of antibiotics - setting them far apart from the tank farming industry. But that's not all - we at Horizon Farms always strive for more: Huon Aquaculture has the lowest stocking density in the world at a maximum of 8-12kg per m3 by using massively sized off-shore pens called fortresses. To give this context, that is approximately 99% water and 1% fish! Huon Salmon is raised in pristine off-shore waters and given premium quality feed only. Through selective breeding since 2002 and the use of state of the art technology, Huon Aquaculture has managed to become a marine protein producer which means they produce more salmon than wild fish is used in the feed.
Needless to say, Huon salmon looks better, tastes better, and is better. Huon Salmon was awarded 100 points at the Richard Langdon Champion Product in Show at the 2010 Royal Hobart Fine Food Awards and was the only product from the entire 961 show entrants to receive perfect marks. Additionally, by reducing the amount of fish oil in the feed compared to other farmed salmon, Huon's fish taste is non-fatty and very suitable for raw consumption such as sashimi and sushi - yes our salmon is safe to be consumed raw! Superior quality, transparency, safety, and the whole story. That's premium salmon to enjoy with the whole family. Huon prides itself on producing the world’s most loved salmon. In the words of the founders, Peter and Frances Bender, at Huon Aquaculture “we don’t want to be the biggest, we simply want to be the best.” - a philosophy that we lovingly share here at Horizon Farms.
