Antibiotic-free, farm raised, smoked over hardwood.

This was a very disappointing product. I’m not sure why it’s called “Smoked Salmon” because there was zero smoke flavor. The fish itself was *very* fishy. There are far better hot-smoked products on the shelves at TJ’s.

LOL @ Peter S. I purchased this product along with the other Hot Smoked Salmon Fillet (delicious, btw) and disappointing is an understatement!

All Summer I’ve been buying these. They have been really good, and I have smoked my share of fish over the decades. But its nice to just buy some when you haven’t fished.
Well all Summer it was made right. Dry, Flaky, and lots of deep flavor. But this week I purchased a few packs, and it was more like eating something that was cooked in the oven. Mushy. Not Flaky. And not much flavor! Why does Trader Joes cut corners? My guess is they figured they could have them on the rack for a shorter period and get much more product out. Well, that just ruins what smoked Salmon is supposed to be!
Luckily I NOW know what to watch for. You can SEE the difference through the clear packaging. There shouldn’t be so many juices flowing on properly smoked Salmon! I won’t be buying any more of this quick made Smoked Salmon until its made Right again! I really do hope TJ’s fixes it because when its made right, its worth buying. I have to wonder if some of the above complaints are of people who have gotten the same, even tho the dates are a year ago? Maybe TJ’s fixed the preparation then but now its fallen back into rushing it? Whatever the reason, please fix. It is delicious when made right! 🙂
