Delicious Salmon Yakitori Skewers! A popular street food in Japan, yakitori is traditionally skewered chicken grilled over special charcoal.  In this recipe, we are using BC’s finest sockeye salmon. When purchasing salmon, look for the Ocean Wise symbol next to the fish. This symbol ensures that the salmon was sustainably caught and the best choice for the health of our oceans. Sustainable seafood means that the seafood was caught or farmed in a way that ensures the long-term health of that species and the ocean it lives in.
