SALMON & LIME RICE SALAD

October 11, 2012

We recently watched a documentary about grizzly bears called Grizzly Man. This movie is absolutely ridiculous. It’s a true story of some crazy dude who lived with bears for 13 years.

Salmon & Lime Rice Salad from Rachel Schultz

He was eventually killed when a bear attacked and ate him. (Shocking!) I don’t know how to gracefully transition from that to this salmon recipe other than this picture.

Maybe this movie subconsciously inspired a salmon craving?
