Salmon Sashimi and Seaweed Salad
Today was an inadvertent Fast Day. I woke up early and headed over to a friend's house for a cheesecake cooking tutorial (more on that later). We were so busy that all I had to eat all morning was a cup of coffee and 2 Vietnamese Steamed Tapioca Dumplings (Banh Bot Loc - more on that later too) for a grand total of 163 calories.
So when I got home, I figured that I should convert the day into a Fast Day and go for a light dinner. Luckily I had some salmon sashimi and seaweed salad in the fridge already.
I'm amazed how filling the salmon is. The richness really helps to keep me full all day. I barely miss the rice now - and that's a big thing for an Asian person to admit!
The seaweed salad (from the prepared section of my Japanese market) was a great addition. On its on own, the salad is very salty so you need very little soy sauce for the fish.
There's no recipe since nothing is cooked. Just slice the fish, pour soy sauce in a separate container, a dab of wasabi and open the seaweed salad. That's it!
Here is the calorie break down:
- 100 g/ 3.5 oz fresh salmon sashimi (125 calories)
- 113 g/ 4 oz prepared seaweed salad (158 calories)
- 0.2 T soy sauce (2 calories)
- 0.5 tsp prepared wasabi (8 calories)
