Yubuchobap Smoked Salmon Sushi Pockets are my recipe  of the day with Fish Friday Foodies. We get together once per month to post on seafood related topics. This month we are doing smoked fish and seafood recipes.

What is Yubu?

Yubu,  which is a bean curd skin,  can be bought  in Asian groceries ready to use and fill. As an alternative to a toasted nori sheet, this is a great alternative for those who want something different.

Smoked Fish, not Raw

Another great difference is that  when using smoked salmon, you  don’t have to worry about the considerations of  using raw fish. It makes the perfect option for those who wish something else.

  1. Wow this sounds delicious – and what a beautiful dish! I love the idea of using smoked salmon – I’m not comfortable enough with raw fish to attempt a dish with them at home yet!
