Most of us are working behind the scenes from early morning to late night to prepare everything that is sold during the day. Every day fresh products are delivered to and taken care of by various departments in the kitchen. Everything from salmon, vegetables and dairy products to wine and dry goods. All goods supplied are controlled according to a specific schedule with various control points so that the products maintain the quality we seek.

Next, the salmon is filleted, sliced, cut or marinated depending on what it is used for. Vegetables are cleaned and washed and then ready to use. During the day, an average of 2,000 meals are prepared in the restaurants, which includes everything from daily specials and salmon delicacies to catering orders and conference meals.


We work primarily with salmon and salmon trout which we today mainly import from Norway, where it's farmed. The fish arrives whole to Gothenburg harbor where it's filleted and trimmed by hand, which we think is better than machine-cut filets. Then it's sent to us or to one of our smaller smokehouses which we have carefully selected.

If the fish is smoked, we require that it's dry salted, i.e. the salmon fillet is rubbed with salt and allowed to soak until the desired salinity is reached, and then smoked.
An alternative to this, as many larger smokehouses use, is to inject salt. This means that a saline solution is injected into the fish to give the product a salty taste but it's also a way to reduce weight loss during the smoking process. In our opinion, this injection leads to an inferior product, which is why we do NOT use this method at Laxbutiken.


What we constantly strive for is to improve and maintain a high quality in everything we do, from product to service. We want to be proud of what we do and sell and we will never take any shortcuts that could compromise a good and honest product.

We want to give all our guests a personal and friendly service and the products we make in our kitchen should never have to get added E numbers to get the correct color, flavor, texture or shelf life. Although we produce large volumes we never want to become a factory. We want you as a guest to be pleased with your visit and our products so that you want to come back again and again. Not really rocket science, but merely logical thinking according to us.
