I grew up on Lake Michigan and the Pere Marquette River, so we always had salmon canned up by ourselves (NO Bones!). I so miss the easy access to good trout! Now I live in Dayton Ohio and I have to pay $4.99/lb or more for atlantic salmon, that we aren't sure if it is truly wild or not (even thou they say it is, there have been news reports lately that the vendors just state that, and truly don't know). The least expensive salmon I have found so far is from Aldi's. It is Sea Queen Wild Caught Salmon and they are frozen in airtight packages in 4 oz sizes (Four 4oz steaks per bag at $3.99) When on a budget, it sure fits the purpose! They also have the Sea Queen Solid White Albacore Tuna in water. Belive it or not, it is meater and cleaner than any of those famous name brand tunas!
That's awesome! My husband is a big Salmon fisherman here in the Michigan Great Lakes, so we always have it on hand. McCormik makes a seasoning called Montreal Steak. We use a few teaspons of that along with some worchester sauce and olive oil. Marinate it for a couple of hours, them broil it until done (flaky). The flavor is incredible. Fat free Italian dressing is a good marinade too before you broil. Always moist and tender.
That is great that you eat it everyday. I know I could, but DH would cry about it.
I've been having salmon every day for breakfast for about a month. From the deli at Whole Foods, we buy two grilled filets on the weekend. I eat 2 ounces a day and make it last almost the week. I usually have to eat something else the last day :-)
It's so yummy! The piece my husband bought me this week is the moistest, most delicious salmon I've ever had. Mmmmmmmm.
I've wondered about cooking my own but I usually mess up fish when I try it on my own. Plus the hubbie hates the smell so I'd have to cook it when he's out, LOL!
I tried canned salmon and it was delicious but I just don't like picking through the bones (and I don't want to eat them even if they are healthy - I just can't go there).
