The subtle taste resulting from a perfect harmony of salmon, smoke and salt are the hallmarks of the Fillet Tsar Nikolaj.
According to the protocol at the imperial court of the last Russian tsar, Nikolaj II, the rear fillet of the salmon was served only on the occasion of state receptions and special celebrations.
The legendary smoked Balik salmon fillet was introduced for the first time in 1984 and today, nearly 30 years later, continues to be the reference for smoked salmon worldwide. No other product before or since has had such a significant impact on the smoked salmon industry. With over 350 imitations worldwide, the Fillet Tsar Nikolaj is probably the most copied luxury food product on earth.
For the best flavour experience we suggest cutting the Fillet Tsar Nikolaj vertically in medallions of approximately 1 cm width.
