Sockeye Salmon with Calamari and White Bean Salad

Yellow Umbrella is my all time favorite place to pick up fresh fish and also unique side dishes. I wanted to make a unique salad for dinner tonight, that included a lot of flavors.  I was able to buy some sockeye salmon, calamari salad that is divine and a white bean salad with shrimp, calamari and arugula. The flavors in this salad were spicy, citrus and bitter and the taste set this salad apart. All it took was about 10 minutes to put it together! For the vegans you can omit the sockeye salmon and you have a wonderful salad full of protein and flavor.
