Salmon skin cracklets

CHILEAN HEALTH FOOD brand Williwaw recently launched its line of Salmon Skin Cracklets to the American market. The crunchy chips are made from locally sourced salmon and provide a good source of lean protein, omega-3s, collagen, and vitamin D.

Williwaw grew out of the founders’ love for a common pastime, according to company owner and founder Andrés Herrera, who explained in a press release, “As a group of friends, we enjoy going fishing in Patagonia, in the south of Chile. After fishing, we cooked out our catch in a barbecue, and we used to eat the crunchy skin.”

The zero-carb, gluten-free Salmon Skin Cracklets are shaped like triangles and come in four versions: Sea Salt, which delivers the pure taste of Patagonian salmon brushed with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt; Smokey, an intense flavor suitable for pairing with a strong malt beer; Patagonian Spice, a locally sourced blend containing traditional spices; Salsa, a combination of tomatoes and herbs accented with the sweetness of onions; and Pesto, a mix of basil and garlic along with a hint of pesto.

Salmon Skin Cracklets can be found online at Amazon and for a suggested retail price of $26.95 for a package of five bags.
