Smoked Salmon Sunday Morning Fishcakes by Salar Smokehouse 

We are fortunate to be located in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt locations in the world, where community and culture are still prominent. 
On a daily basis, we are surrounded by fantastic scenery, and an abundance of wildlife, including sea eagles, otters, and wild deer. 

We opened Salar Smokehouse as a small business in South Uist in about 1997, designing and building our own unique kilns.

Our Flaky Smoked Salmon has won numerous awards since it was first produced on the premises and we aim to continue to build on our past successes. 

Salar won the New Business Award at the Highlands & Islands Food & Drink in the 2017 awards. Our Head Smoker, Donald Maclachlan, 
won the Young Shining Star award and is now an ambassador for young people within the region’s food and drink industry. 

At only 19 years old he is an exceptional member of the team and a brilliant ambassador for our business and the industry in general. 

The Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Awards celebrate the best food and drink across the region. Award categories include New 
Product Award, Export Award and Business Growth Award. 

Entries for the awards close on June 15.
