Smoked Salmon

Not only known for its heart healthy properties including the Omega-3 fatty acids, the Canadian Atlantic Salmon is renowned around the world for its quality, and taste.   Known as “Plamu” by these first nation peoples the Atlantic salmon was a mainstay in their food supply and coveted by the Mi’kmaq for the oils, which were collected and taken internally for medicinal purposes. Long before European settlers brought the art of smoking salmon to North America, the Mi’kmaq aboriginal people of Prince Edward Island were already expert salmon fishermen and would smoke salmon for feasts, powwows and other celebrations.

Today at Medallion Trading we produce in an old world, authentic, and artisanal manner. While producing in small batches similar to our European and Scandinavian Master Smokers, we honor the traditions of the Mi’kmaq peoples by smoking our products using only alder wood native to PEI; thus creating a premium product in a meld of traditions from both sides of the Atlantic.
