Morey’s Seafood is our latest sponsor. Their smoked salmon and fish creations are gluten-free.
We’re pretty crazy about smoked salmon around here. In fact, when I was working today, Danny sent me a photo of our little guy in his highchair, looking happy, reaching for another bite of smoked salmon. It’s great food for a growing toddler — high in omega 3 oils, good protein, and ridiculously easy to eat — and adults both. I’d say that Desmond’s diet is mostly smoked salmon some days. He can’t get enough.
We’re lucky in the Pacific Northwest — wild Alaskan salmon is pretty darned easy to find. Danny smokes salmon for us nearly every week in the late spring through autumn. However, whenever we publish a salmon recipe, we hear from readers all across the country. It’s not as easy to find good salmon here. In fact, when we were in New York in January, cooking a dinner party for someone we adore, we had to go to 5 seafood purveyors before we could find wild Alaskan salmon.
That’s why we’re happy to share that Morey’s Seafood is our latest sponsor. These good folks in Minnesota have made great smoked salmon for decades. And now their gluten-free smoked salmon can be in your home too.
We love the classic smoked salmon. (And I love that the smoke flavor comes from actual hickory smoke, not artificial smoke flavoring.) And the tomato-basil smoked salmon was Lucy’s favorite. Danny and I love the peppered smoked salmon — for people not afraid of pepper! — and the Cajun spices, dark and full of flavor. All of Morey’s smoked salmon selections are gluten-free, as are the other smoked fish: smoked whitefish, smoked goldies, and smoked lake trout. (You can see all the smoked fish here.)
Money’s also makes a line of prepared frozen fish dishes, most of which are gluten-free as well.
If you want to eat great smoked salmon, no matter where you live, we recommend Morey’s to you.
We’ll let them tell you about themselves as well.
What made you start Morey’s Seafood?
Morey’s roots date back to 1937, when the truck of a fisherman from Lake of the Woods, MN broke down in nearby Motley, MN. Not knowing what to do with his catch, the fisherman traded it to local logger/farmer, Ed Morey, for a load of corn. Ed, as they say, was hooked. From that day on, he was in the fish business and, within a year, built his first smokehouse. The modest 4’x6’ building would be stocked with fish from Lake of the Woods and give Ed a place to hone his craft. The building would eventually grow and, so too, the customer base. Soon, his walleye, northern and perch were being enjoyed in Milwaukee and Chicago.
In 1964, Morey’s became a true family business when Ed’s son, Loren, joined the operation. The business continued to expand, with new processing facilities and smokehouse, as well as retail stores in Brainerd and Motley, MN. Today, Morey’s frozen and smoked fish and seafood can be found in retail stores and dinner tables across the U.S. Morey’s also serves hundreds of fine seafood restaurants across the country.
Beyond our commitment to great products, Morey’s has also lead the charge in commitment to responsible, sustainable practices within our industry. Morey’s is an active member of the National Fisheries Institute and works to make the organization a leading advocate for ensuring a safe, responsible, and sustainable supply of seafood. We still are dedicated to Ed Morey’s original vision: providing a delicious, easy-to-enjoy array of fish and seafood, wherever you live, however you like it.
