Salmon Skin Salad?

BerkeleyToad | | Feb 14, 2011 06:10 PM

I had really delicious Salmon Skin Salad in Santa Barbara last year (as far as I remember the place was called "Goleta Sushi House"). It was a relatively standard japanese type salad (sorry I don't know what the dressing is called - sweetish, "watery", very light taste, on lettuce), fried salmon skin and some bonito flakes (I think!) on top. Nothing fancy but really, really good and I still crave it.

Anybody know where I can get a decent salmon skin salad of this type in the East Bay Area (or SF)? Berkeley or Oakland would be perfect but we have a car, a 30 min drive would be OK as well. Not interested in salmon skin rolls, just the salad...

Alternatively, could I make this at home? Can you buy just the salmon skin at Berkeley Bowl or some such place? I don't really care for the salmon itself, just the fatty skin with a thin layer of "flesh"...

Thanks guys!
