Fish on Monday: creamed salmon
A family favorite here: Creamed salmon to be served over boiled potatoes, sides are tossed salad with choice of dressing, fzn peas. I long ago switched from fresh salmon to frozen fillets or canned red. Red salmon is now cost prohibitive at $8 or so/can so I switched to pink salmon, which is now escalating. Best price is $2.69 at Aldi's for wild caught, AK salmon, a type that I insist on. I prefer to keep AK fishermen is business vs the Chinese-who are increasingly taking over this market. While I did find alternative brands of canned salmon recently at Xpect, I was disappointed to learn that they are from China. They sit on the shelf.
