Christmas is a time for a bit of luxury. Not everything needs to be expensive, but if you’re going to spend a little more, then it’s worth doing so on a small amount of something that will go a long way. We have a fabulous range of fish smokers in Ireland, so, for your Christmas starter, why not splurge on some perfect smoked salmon from some of the country’s finest fish smokers?
