Ready for the recipe? Just keep in mind that you can dial back the spice to accomodate your preferences. You could also use a cooked protein like chicken, beef or shrimp if you aren’t down with raw fish.

{Please don’t ask how many servings it is. Servings depend on the entire picture of your day, not one meal. A serving will look very different for someone who eats 3 meals and 2 snacks than it will for a person who practices intermittent fasting and has 2 meals daily without snacking. Servings also depend on your activity level, your goals, your body composition, etc.}
