Huon Aquaculture has taken out the Champion Seafood Trophy at the 2021 Royal Tasmanian Fine Food Awards, with five products awarded Gold and a further four products gaining a Silver award. With a score of 99/100, Huon’s Reserve Signature Cold Smoked Salmon Loin, received the Champion Seafood Trophy with judges describing it as an “excelled product, balanced, well-rounded”.
The Royal Tasmanian Fine Food Awards is one of the most respected and longest running food awards in Australia, and Huon’s unique products were clearly a favourite with the judges.
Co-founder of the innovative Tasmanian majority-family owned company, Frances Bender, said that the whole team was thrilled to, again, be recognised for its quality products amidst a world class field. We submitted nine products for judging, and every product gained either a Gold or Silver award.
Frances said that Huon’s products were assessed among 44 seafood entries. “We strive to do our best and produce premium quality salmon and trout for customers around the globe, and we are able to do that because of a genuine love and belief in the product,” she said.
“We are extremely proud that our locally produced products are considered of such high grade by so many local, national and international judges,” Frances said.
The awards come as a testament to Huon’s commitment to using stress free, sustainable methods of production that see their salmon raised to mirror the natural life of salmon in the wild.
Mrs Bender said that Huon applies the same farming dedication across its entire product range.
Huon’s award-winning products are healthy, delicious and can easily be incorporated into quick mid-week meals, providing your weekly dose of vitamins and omega-3s!
The following products were awarded.
Huon’s Gold Awards:
Reserve Signature Cut Salmon Loin “Champion Seafood Trophy 2021 winner”
Using the prime loin cut of salmon, the Signature Cut is the ultimate decadence and the highest grade salmon cut you’ll find.
Lightly salted and then kissed with smoke to give it a restrained and delicate flavour with texture that is unrivalled, the Signature Cut is seriously special.
Cut wafer thin and serve sashimi style with freshly grated wasabi and soy, or slice into thicker medallions and use as a centrepiece on a show stopping entrée for special guests.
Our whisky cured salmon is the coming together of internationally recognised excellence in salmon with one of the world’s best whiskys, Tasmania’s Lark Distillery.
The finest Huon Salmon is marinated with the award-winning Tasmanian Lark whisky for up to two days to produce a taste sensation for both salmon and whisky connoisseurs.
The smoky notes of the barrel in the whisky marry with the subtle flavours of the delicate Huon salmon to produce a product unparalleled in both its Tasmanian heritage and flavour.
Winner of the 2017 Gold Medal at the Sydney Fine Food awards, our Banquet Slice Cold Smoked Salmon represents the very best of the best.
Our Huon Salmon is slow smoked for up to 40 hours in kilns fired with whole river red gum logs to ensure it delivers a fresh, succulent and wonderfully flavoursome experience.
Unique to our banquet sliced salmon, the smoked fillet is sliced horizontally by hand. Each long slice fully trimmed by a dedicated smokehouse team who cast their eagle eyes over each and every slice to make sure they’re perfect.
It is ideal for professional meal preparation, canapés, entrees and other entertaining dishes, where good presentation goes hand in hand with the experience.
Brighter than our cold smoked salmon and with a richer taste, Huon’s Premium Cold Smoked Ocean Trout will create the perfect salad, quiche or canape.
Sliced and ready to eat.
They say the best things come to those who wait and for those who appreciate the finer, more mature things in life, our Ocean Grown Caviar provides the perfect finish on the palate.
Matured for longer at sea our Reserve Selection Ocean Grown Salmon Caviar presents with a fuller pearl size than our Premium, with the membrane taking on a more robust natural sea salt flavour. Carefully hand-selected for you before being expertly extracted by gently hand-rubbing each roe sack, the results are a delicate salty pearl direct from the Great Southern Ocean off the coast of Tasmania.
