You might have seen bottled salmon flakes at a refrigerated section in a Japanese grocery store. It is cooked, flavored, deboned, and flaked salmon. It’s one of the popular convenient item in Japan, as you can eat it right out of the bottle.
I rarely buy it in Japan, where fresh cut of salted salmon is always available, but I sometimes buy it in the United States. It’s delicious when I eat it with hot steamy rice, or put inside of onigiri, onigirazu, or temakizushi.
I have to admit that it’s a kind of expensive. If you want to save money, you can make it on your own. It costs around $5~$8 a bottle at Japanese grocery stores.
