Loch Duart invited Coinneach to visit some of their farms where he witnessed, first-hand, their small scale, low impact approach to raising their salmon. Following his visit to their farms in Uist, Loch Duart is sharing a series of films which feature The Hebridean Baker. During these visits Coinneach was shown how Loch Duart raise his favourite salmon. He was then inspired to create two Loch Duart Salmon recipes which are included in his new book the Hebridean Baker: At Home, published on 12th October 2023.
|Raised from wild Scottish ancestors, Loch Duart's salmon grow up to three months longer than average in crystal clear waters.
Coinneach MacLeod, known as the Hebridean Baker, said of his visit to Loch Duart: “I’m passionate about using the best Scottish produce. Loch Duart Salmon, born and raised in the Outer Hebrides, are bred from wild Scottish ancestors, meaning their fish are as close to wild as it gets. Slow grown, three months longer than average, the salmon are given lots of room to swim and to grow fit and healthy. It’s salmon farming at a much smaller scale".
“Enjoyed in the finest restaurants throughout the world and recognised by the charity Heart UK, Loch Duart Salmon are fed a special diet, high in marine content and rich in Omega-3, that makes their fish taste amazing. I can’t wait to share my new salmon recipes in my brand new book the Hebridean Baker: At Home.”
|When compared to shop bought Scottish farmed salmon Loch Duart can have up to double the omega-3 levels.
Adam Gray, Marketing & Communications Manager at Loch Duart, said: “This summer, we had the pleasure of hosting the brilliant Hebridean Baker, Coinneach MacLeod, at some of our Uist farms. He wanted to see how we raise his salmon of choice, our unrivalled Loch Duart Salmon. Coinneach has now created two, bespoke Loch Duart Salmon recipes for his new book ‘Hebridean Baker: At Home’. The recipes showcase Loch Duart Salmon’s exceptional cooking qualities and celebrate the Hebrides and Highland food and culture which inspire his cooking. All the very best to the Hebridean Baker with his fantastic new book.”
|Loch Duart is the first salmon farm in Scotland to introduce a low carbon emissions hybrid feed storage barge.
