One Piece of Salmon: Three Meals And Counting

I got 3 meals out of a piece of salmon this week that I bought at my local market. I grilled the salmon on my indoor grill and it came out perfect…as always.

The price:? $1.66 per serving. Who said that a specialty market is expensive? You can usually get the best price per meal at your local market.

Some of my vegetables were getting ripe so I diced tomatoes, cucumbers, red peppers, green peppers, and red onions and put a dash of olive oil on them along with some black pepper and store them in my refrigerator. They were great as a salad serving them over a mix of field greens and also as a cold relish on the side. I was also thinking that this would be great in a Gazpacho so I’ll have to try that this summer.

I do this to get my daily dose of vegetables. I also include fresh pineapple, peaches, or mangos when I have them. These fresh combinations are great over grilled fish or chicken.

Grilled Salmon Salad – Leftover With Asian Sauce:

On day 3, I had the leftover salmon cold and made a quick and easy sauce to serve over it.

I always make it fresh and “eyeball” it for the individual serving. When I say “eyeball” I mean that I did not measure so you’ll have to wing it. Start trying to do this and you will quickly learn. I hardly ever measure anything anymore.

Mix: 2 parts Low Cal Mayo and 1 part Low Cal Sour cream. Add dashes of Soy sauce, fresh basil, sesame oil, sesame seeds, rice vinegar, fresh ginger, sugar, dry mustard and cayenne

Bon Appetit!
