It's a treat to find "Indian candy"--brown-sugar-cured salmon--sharing a plate with salmon jerky and peppery cold-smoked salmon.

   I posted "squaw candy," but forgot to add "Indian candy."  Here's the first citation on the Dow Jones database, which is a start:

The barbecued salmon that is sold all over Vancouver is "hot smoked" at much higher temperatures, so the fish actually gets cooked.
While in Vancouver I also first tasted what Ray called "Indian Candy". These are strips of Sockeye salmon that have been cured and hot-smoked twice, resulting in salmon that is sweet, salty, chunky and wonderful. It became a favorite of mine, but I have never seen it here.
ships it collect via air freight (the expensive part) and it should only take a day. All orders must be prepaid. Obviously, the more you buy, the more worthwhile it is to ship, but I would recommend buying at least one side of red spring (10 pounds) and a few strips of Indian Candy.
