I wish I could say that this was an attempt at healthier eating in 2018. It wasn’t though. I actually made this when I picked up some salmon at Aldi at a killer price right before Christmas and it was kind of a special treat.
When I made my Instant Pot Cauliflower Rice, I had a little surprise in store for today’s post: Easy Shrimp in Curry Sauce.
If you’re watching your budget, chances are you’re not eating a lot of seafood, but when a holiday like Valentine’s comes around, you’re probably going to want something a little special. Maybe something like this Roasted Red Pepper & Shrimp Risotto.
When the subject of crab dip came up at our house (still staying with the folks for awhile) my step-mom, yes, the one who makes the Wayside Inn Carrot Cake, oh, that carrot cake, pulled out her recipes, leafed through the binder and pointed out this hot, little number.
Salmon Cheesecake? Really? Reactions of those who’ve never considered a savory cheesecake tend to vary until someone tries this creamy, smoky spread. You may have to get over the name, but you’ll never get over your first taste…I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve been asked for it.
Canned Salmon – there was a time I’d tell you that you were nuts had you suggested I eat such a thing…but as I’ve found, those on a limited budget that are trying to get the recommended amount of fish into their diets have to be creative –
I don’t know if I’ve told you that I’m a reformed food snob. For years, I’d only eat the best of this and that…as prices skyrocketed, my budget diminished. I found myself cutting out a lot of the expensive fish, and was missing out on a marvelous brain food. Guess what – I’m no longer a food snob and I’m eating better than ever…
For years, my daughter’s been describing this casserole to me, a family favorite of her in-laws. For years, in my head, I’ve been thinking: Do we NEED another Tuna Casserole? The “We” being not just our family, but the world as a whole! One taste of this casserole was all it took to change my mind.
You’ll know the living is easy when you try this Tuna with Green Bean and Tomato Salad, served up with White Beans for a little extra protein and substance.This is the answer for those who think Nicoise looks good, but might be afraid their picky eaters would turn up their noses. There’s nothing unfamiliar here, but the bright, lemony dressing transforms these simple ingredients.
Can we talk Tuna Noodle Casserole? Why? Because my blog tells me people are looking for it. Particularly Meta Givens Tuna Noodle Casserole Supreme.
This simple bread crumb, herb and olive oil topping works well with almost all fish and takes seconds to make…the idea was “stolen” from Tyler Florence who used it on a belly of Wild Atlantic Salmon. Sorry, salmon, you’ve just turned into budget friendly Tilapia.
