UCCFS: Mashed Potatoes vs Grilled Salmon Round 1

This is the first of four number 2 vs 15 seeds and the last four match ups in round 1 of the Ultimate Chilehead Comfort Food Showdown. The favorite mashed potatoes is matched up against long shot grilled salmon. Why long shot, well from all the votes mashed potatoes got in setting up this contest I do not see how grilled salmon stands much of a chance. Besides I really am not a fan of salmon, grilled or otherwise, while mashed potatoes is a great canvas for all kinds of spicy goodness. Then you can add bacon, cheese and all kinds of herbs and spices to enhance the dish. Salmon can be marinated and basted to a nice spicy coating, so I will give it that much, but for this guy I am ain’t holding out for much hope in any kind of upset.
