Thanks to its refined taste, salmon is a very popular fish in French gastronomy. Chefs love to add it to pasta dishes, risotto, lasagna and quiches. Steamed salmon goes very well with ricotta cheese and green vegetables such as spinach, asparagus and arugula salad. As for smoked salmon, it is often served with blinis or toasted bread and a drop of lemon juice for Christmas, New Year’s Eve or Valentine’s day.
Smoked salmon is not the only variety of smoked fish available on our website. There are many small French companies who specialize in artisanal fish-smoking methods. Often located on Brittany’s Atlantic coast, they can provide you with mouthwatering smoked trout, wild salmon, tuna and haddock.

Tuna is one of the most versatile French fish. It can be used in fine dining, for example in sushi, sashimi and other gourmet dishes. But tuna fish is not only a luxury ingredient : it is also a simple, accessible food item which can be cooked in a steam-pressure chamber and then preserved in cans. Canned tuna tastes great in a sandwich, a pasta dish, a pizza, a quiche and a tuna salad. It contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, a nutrient which helps you maintain a healthy immune system.
There exists an infinity of ways to preserve fish. Apart from canned sardines, French cooks enjoy serving fish rillettes, terrines, spreads and souskay (a Martinican specialty) to their guests. Another way to turn fresh seafood into a shelf-stable product is to use it in a soup recipe. Our partners from Brittany and Provence bring you the best of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean sea with their traditional fish soup recipes.
