Malaysian Food Blog, Travel, Diving & More

A couple of weeks ago I posted Mr. Porky pork crackles, one of the best and most sinful snacks ever. Well, my stance on that claim is still true, but today, I want to introduce a healthier alternative that is almost as tasty, and actually halal too! Enter fried salmon skin!

fried salmon skin
RM 3.90 a pack, whole afternoon’s worth of almost-healthy snacking

You can get this at Isetan KLCC’s sushi counter for RM 3.90 a pack, it is not available all the time nor even everyday, but if you see them, grab one! Sushi Tei at Tropicana City Mall is another place that offers fried salmon skin on their conveyor belt.

Much like pork scratchings, fried salmon skin is crispy with an underlying bits of fat still intact. The best part of salmon skin comes from the belly area. They’re just so yummy, and since it is fish, it shouldn’t be quite as bad for your body. (disclaimer: I am not a doctor I’m just talking out of my ass)

Tips: even though this is a Japanese snack, using it to go with porridge would be quite excellent!


got Blackberry, no life!


Before Cheesie got her Blackberry from Xpax, she was always “why do you always play with your BB?”. Apparently that was because it is sort of a habit that whenever I sit down, the first thing I do is to whip out the BB and check on my twitter feeds, emails, etc. I guess it’s not a very good thing to do when you are among people who aren’t addicted to their phones.

But look who’s talking now. This girl can’t even leave her phone while walking! One of these days she’s going to walk into some smelly dudes with wet armpits, just wait. 😀

  12. is it high cholesterol a not?

  13. vialentino,

  14. KY,

    You and Cheesie demonstrate why BBs are often called ‘CrackBerries” in the U.S.A.

    BTW, the Motoral Droid may not be available in your part of the world, but the Droid is going to offer serious competition for BBs and the Iphone.

    It has a great feature set, very reasonable price, here $199.00 USD.

    CNET review/comments found @:

    Let me know what you think of the Droid.


  15. lb: why u pretend like u dunno me. i emo 🙁

    Salmon skin! Nice!
    Im gonna be real random here but…
    The best part of the fish in my opinion is actually the cheeks LOL. Sucks that fish don’t have bigger cheeks thou lol.

  31. Mizz Sharon,
    Hahah I like the belly more, and lips too!

  32. […] current fix is the salmon skin from Isetan from time to time, while it is good, it is no match for proper pork rind. haihh Tags:  haze, […]
