Do you remember how good kippers used to taste?

Nowadays, they are all too often dyed and barely smoked. Here at the Connemara Smokehouse we start with fresh herrings that are plump and un-bruised. They are split by hand, lightly cured then mildly smoked for up to 18 hours depending on the weather. The result is succulent flesh with golden skin and a wonderful flavour. They are delicious and nutritious and are a tasty source of protein, calcium and omega 3 oils.
With the run up the Christmas Season, Graham is up in the early hours smoking.  Graham just finished smoking some kippers. So here a few pics to show off these beautiful golden kippers straight out of the kiln just to tempt you…
All the delicious flavour of these world-famous kippers, makes the most wonderful breakfast or healthy snack. Just simply grill with a knob of butter or shallow poach in gently boiling water and serve with some toast or traditional soda bread……yum!!!
