Of course when it comes to Hokkaido, you will have never ending delicacies, and one of them is the dried fish, which you only need to grill it on pan or oven, and it goes so well with just plain rice or porridge. They also sell marinated salmon, great for grilling. You will love the smoky flavor for sure.
