Upon receiving your Cheena Lox Smoked Salmon, open the box packaging and examine the vacuum packed pouch. Check to see that it is air-tight and sealed completely. Once you are satisfied of the condition of the smoked salmon place it in the refrigerator. Smoked salmon will last for about 7 days in your refrigerator once the vacuum pouch has been opened but best eaten within a couple of days. If you decide you want to store it for later use, store in the freezer in its original vacuum pouch unopened which will last between 6 to 9 months depending on the temperature of your freezer. If you want to have a portion of the smoked salmon, remove the remaining portion you want to store and wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and enclose it in a Ziploc freezer bag. This will prevent it from drying out and allow it to be stored for about 3 months.
