Let's Eat!

Super easy, high quality protein recovery meal. Taking a feather from Miyoko-san's (mom) cap I wanted to pass along some great cookery information. Do you love sashimi? Guess what? You don't always have to sit down at a sushi joint and pay arm & leg to get it. You can use frozen salmon or tuna. I grew up on the stuff. It doesn't have to be fresh, crazy expensive fish. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Well....okay it's not exactly cheap but it's not restaurant expensive either. We get our frozen salmon fillets from Sam's Club. After trying a bunch of different brands and a couple fishy moments, we came across the Copper River Seafoods Alaskan Sockeye Salmon (wild caught) brand. It has been consistently very very good. This is one of the easiest and best tasting meals to make in the Grunnagle repertoire.

What to do:
-purchase salmon or tuna frozen fillets (I recommend wild caught)
-sharpen your knife folks!
-partially defrost fillets (it's easier to slice when it's still slightly frozen)
-if you buy the Copper River brand you will need to remove the skin from the fillet
-let thaw completely as seen below in a very cool line on a square plate
-slice avocado and place on top (optional)(but shouldn't be)
-serve with steamed white rice of course
-drop some wasabi in the soy and your good to go!

Perfect quality protein recovery meal. I can just see the protein jumping off this plate and into my muscles. Choppers looking gangsta.
