  1. It is delicious. Go in and ask them for a taste.

    1. I love it!
      I have had it elsewhere, and it is the same at Santa Monica Seafood. I think it comes to them pre-packaged (as opposed to their making it themselves), and it is mighty delicious!
      It will keep for a week or so, but I advise buying what you will eat over a few days...and then you will want to return to buy some more. It is great separated over a salad!

      1. What is it? I googled but got nothing!

          A smoked salmon preparation with brown sugar and maple syrup.

            whatsfordinner -- Google "Indian Candy" and you will find several items:


            It's a snack and a dessert and a salad topping and a sandwich's anything and everything you want it to be! It's sticky and gooey, and it is addictive!

              Hah! I googled "Indan" candy based on the original post.

          2. Do they use wild salmon, or that farmed crap?

              Depends upon the manufacturer, really.

              I first had it from Snapper Jon's (RIP) in Woodland Hills.

              I like to take it khiking, cause the salmon and sugar gives you one hell of a boost.

                Funny -- I, too, had it at Snapper Jon's (RIP!), long after I had been introduced to it at SM Seafood. While I think the packaging and source were identical, I always preferred the SM Seafood version just a tad more...don't know why.

                Speaking of...I had some really great fish from Snapper Jon's, and some really not-so-, so I was not really surprised when they closed their doors. I think Santa Monica Seafood offers a much better selection of excellent seafood.
