    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.

        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 spread...it'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.

          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!

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