Smoke Master Richard Penfold, owner of Stonington Seafood, has established a reputation for consistent quality and his company has gained a growing reputation as one of the foremost artisanal smokehouses following authentic Scottish smoking traditions in USA. His fish-smoking knowledge began in the 1980s when he went to work his summers in Shetland Isles of Scotland. Richard’s Finnan Haddie was noticed by the late Johnny Apple of the New York Times.
Stonington Finnan Haddie is made from the thickest fillets of hook caught haddock, prepared from extra-large haddock from the World’s most responsible small-boat wild haddock fishery. Finnan Haddie is a unique product that carries a delicate flavor distinct from any other smoked seafood. It is a time-proven food and once tasted, is never forgotten. That is why so many families, for over a century, continue to cook Finnan Haddie for a special occasion or just a cozy comfort meal.
