Creole LA

When it comes to eating salmon, I prefer king salmon over any other type of salmon.  Alaskan salmon is a great source for lean protein and is packed with omega-3’s fatty acids. Many questions arise in a gym setting. What’s a good fish to eat? Wild Salmon is always recommendable because of its healthy content.

I eat mustard greens raw too! The spicy bite balances the sweetness of the salmon. Also the earthiness of the mushrooms and radishes adds a nice bite too! Don’t forget to squeeze fresh lemon to brighten up the flavor of the fish. In this piece, king salmon is paired with a mustard sauce, wild mushrooms, and mustard greens.
