Tataki Sushi Review and The Never Ending Bowl

It's hard to eat fish guilt free for mercury and environmental reasons, but its so healthy beyond that it's justifiable once or twice a week. Tataki in SF lets you get away with both!
Some spinach goma ae and wakame salad after a bowl of miso of course. Standard procedure for me.
I got the sashimi sampler: tuna, Arctic char, and striped bass. It was definitely all clean and of the highest quality.
This is where they really shined however: the Tataki order (thinly sliced seared fish)
I got the Black Sea Bream with avo, jalapeno, masago, and a ponzu chile sauce.
The fish was so creamy and soft / tender paired perfectly with more creamy avocado but then jazzed with a spicy kick and a little sweetness from the ponzu and jalapeno. Amazing seared fish FTW!
 I've been doing the- throw a million things into a salad bowl- a lot recently. This time with the first i've ever cooked a boneless skinless turkey breast. Baked using some herbs, canola/coconut oil and it was amazing! The coconut oil made it taste so good and it was moist and tender but oozing with flavor. Super lean and clean.
 The fun part is getting more excited as I add each epic ingredient. And then discovering each one as I get deeper down.
  • Bella mushrooms
  • Butternut/zucchini squash leftovers
  • Arugula
  • Mixed greens
  • Tomato
  • Blueberries
  • Kim chee
  • Avocado
  • Cucumber
  • Red cabbage
  • Olives
 I dressed with flax oil for the first time now that I understand/see the value in the omega 3-6 balancing act. It doesn't taste weird at all and mixed with some lemon, cider vinegar, and balsamic vinegar well. the bowl was a never ending party.

Do you worry about fish sustainability and mercury content when eating?
Have you tried flax instead of olive oil?
