Yup, this is what we usually do. On a side note, make sure you use a super sharp knife or cleaver. You can really destroy the meat with a dull knife. We also slice the salmon open just a bit more, season, and slice a tomato, onion and sweet pepper (into rings or strips) and place inside. Lay some slices of lemon on top, or forget the lemon and slather a little bbq sauce. Wrap in foil, place on a pan to keep the juices contained and toss on the BBQ for 1/2 hr. Goes perfect with your choice of rice and grilled veggies.

Just made myself hungry. LOL

Enjoy!
If you're happy, and they're unhappy....it was a good deal.

Freezing kills bacteria and parasites. -40F/C is a flash freeze that more or less instantly renders it safe. It can also be held at a warmer temperature longer to accomplish the same.

A bit of an exaggeration to claim the head, fins and tail make up 50 percent of weight, that I know.
This. Gutting is done, as the guts start spoiling the fish as soon as it's killed, unless flash frozen and stated as such. This is labelled as "fresh", or as fresh as Metro can claim. And YES, claiming that head, bones, fins and tail is 50% of the weight is embellishment to make ia point. It's still some waste, even at 15%, it comes to ~$4 a pound, so good deal to fresh salmon.

Was pretty sure that farmed salmon does not need to be frozen for raw consumption. Wild salmon on the other hand does need to be frozen.

Food Safefy inspectors regularly check on sushi bar to make sure their raw fish kept below this temperature.

Unfortunately, for all sushi grade is needed is this temp. No quality nor any other specs.
Sushi fish does not have to kept on-premise at a deep freeze- it can be bought pre-frozen.

The requirement that only frozen fish is used was repealed in 2004- there is no law requiring such.
