Fish...bacon?


Yup! Fish bacon! 
I was at a sushi restaurant a few months ago and tried a dish that contained fried fish skin. It was delicious! So this last weekend when we cooked some salmon steaks at home I tried it out, and it was  just as good! It was from BC sockeye salmon which was amazing too!

The finished product!
All you need to do is peel the skin off cooked salmon steaks, add a small amount of oil to a frying pan and lay out the strips of skin as you would bacon (hence fish bacon!). BEWARE! This splatters a lot more then regular bacon, I suggest having a lid handy to shield the pan with in between flipping while it's cooking. It doesn't take long, so don't walk away. Take off the pan when it looks fried (see picture!).
Let cool and enjoy. It's very rich and tasty!
