Salmon Poke

I never used to like raw fish, but this recipe changed my mind. It's delicious and keeps you coming back for more. If you get really fresh fish, this dish tastes NOTHING like fish! It's great for an appetizer and even better with beer! Almost forgot to mention that fish is a great source of protein and omega fatty acids (brain food)!!

1 lb.  fresh sushi grade Salmon, cut into 1/2" cubes
1 tsp course sea salt
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 stalk green onions, chopped
1/4 cup Ono seaweed
1 small cucumber, diced

Mix all the ingredients and refrigerate for a couple of hours to make the flavors incorporate, or if you're like me, just eat it right away and......enjoy!

You can use any type of fresh grade sushi fish.

In a large pot over medium heat, add the onions and garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Add the turkey and saute for about 5 minutes until turkey is well browned. Add the chile peppers, cumin, oregano, cinnamon, red pepper flakes, paprika, and white pepper and saute for another 5 minutes.

Add two cans of the beans and the chicken broth to the pot. Take the third can of beans and puree them in a food processor.  Add this to the pot. Stir well and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve with lemon and cilantro as condiments.
