Salmon Skin Salad?
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"...

I just had the salmon skin salad at Yamasho in SF, and I think it might be even better than Geta's version. They definitely give you more salmon skin and the sauce is a bit more assertive. No ikura though. The chawan mushi is very good there as well.
I enjoyed the salmon skin salad at Tani's Kitchen in Daly City. It had crispy skin and a good amount of salmon flakes.
