Question
Dear Carol,can I freeze smoked salmon, till Christmas?

Answer
Hi Susana,

Yes, it is safe to freeze smoked salmon. Just be sure to place it in an air-tight wrapping (plastic freezer bag, aluminum foil or plastic wrap) and use within 6 months for best quality.  When you remove from the freezer, place it in the refrigerator to safely defrost.

Happy Holidays.

Carol
