Balsamic Salmon Salad (Thursday) $7.78

I'm pretty excited about bringing all these flavors together - a bit nervous about the sodium content of this meal, but still excited about the salad topped with a beautiful piece of fish.  Oh, and potatoes in a salad for the second week in a row!

Balsamic Salmn Salad
4 small to medium new potatoes, cubed.80
2 tbsp teriyaki marinade .10
2 cloves garlic, minced .15
1 tbsp fresh parsley.05
4 portions salmon fillets $3.99
mixed salad greens $1.99
2 tbsp fresh basil (1-2 tsp dried).10
2 tbsp fresh oregano (1-2 tsp dried).10
2 tbsp olive oil.20
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar .20
1 lemon, halved.10
fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Steam the potatoes until you can stick a fork in them with ease.
  • mix teriyaki marinade, garlic and parsley in a small bowl
  • preheat broiler - line with tin foil for easy clean up  spay foil with cooking spray then place salmon on pan & brush with teriyaki marinade mix.
  • Broil until cooked through and flakes easily - approx 8 minutes (depending on thickness of meat)
  • combine basil, oregano, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl - then toss with salad greens.
  • plate salad first, then potatoes, then broiled salmon - top with a squeeze of lemon & pepper to taste.
Aldi had no Salmon in store this week, so we switched in Tilapia -which Joe is significantly more fond of.  So long as you stay with a fish, the concept is the same, right?  Well, not exactly because Salmon is significantly higher in Omega 3's, but fish consumption in our house is always a good thing, so I'll consider it another successful meal!
