Hungry Man: Baked Salmon

Alex Ziebart

Robin Torres: I am very excited that we finally get to talk about the new Gamer Grub: Hungry Man's collaboration with Blizzard to bring us in-game WoW foods conveniently. It is really hard for the busy player to fit in a decent playtime schedule while still providing a healthy meal for self and/or family and this is a possible solution.

My favorite is the Baked Salmon. It is not only tasty, it heats up wonderfully in the microwave. Our kitchen here at WoW Insider headquarters is not equipped with a full oven, so this is an added bonus. Salmon is a great food to add to your diet because it is rich in omega3 fatty acids, which is lacking in most western diets, leading to increased cardiovascular disease, cancer and other health issues. So if you don't have time to cook Lisa's delicious looking version, you can now pop a Baked Salmon in the microwave before a boss and be eating during the loot distribution.

It is really great that the makers of our favorite game are thinking of our health and well being as well as their bottom line. Kudos to Blizzard!

Alex Ziebart: Now, I don't know much about the health benefits of these sorts of things, so I'm glad Robin was my partner-in-crime for this particular meal. I'm going to focus mostly on taste here and I'll be brief: It was surprisingly good, but the fish wasn't exactly what you would get at the market and certainly not what you see on the front of the box. It was more like a processed and formed fish patty. The patty reminded me of those salmon steaks that Chicken of the Sea sells in pouches. It tasted good though, and apparently Salmon is good for you, so who am I to complain?

Mine was a little dry, but Robin's was better so I assume I just overcooked it. The garlic was strong, but not in a bad way. Living with an Italian, I've become good friends with garlic. It was comforting! I liked it and I would eat it again.
