How much protein per meal at least?

I’m finding myself having to spread my meals out to 6-7 meals per day, but I can’t seem to get 20-30g of protein per meal which I read is recommended for bodybuilding. How important is that or is it just overall protein throughout the day/after workout that’s more important?
