A tsunami of flavor can be yours with this tasty sushi recipe!
We had the pleasure of a visit from Fred Nonato, Chef and Chief Operations Officer for Tsunami.
Joined by Eat Fit NOLA Ambassador, Emily Eickhoff, Chef Fred prepared this spicy Cajun roll named for former Louisiana Senator, John Breaux, a good friend of Tsunami New Orleans.
Below is the recipe Chef Fred prepared on our January Community Health Heroes Show.
