Odds and Ends
Salmon is good for you, salmon is tasty AND salmon is pricey here in Hong Kong. So how do you get around that last bit? My newest, crazily smart and sneaky approach is to hit the sashimi section of Great Supermarket and grab 600gram packages of odds and ends of fresh, chilled and boneless salmon that are packed and sold for a mere HKD40 each! With some imagination, dinners such as tonight's panfried salmon chunks with minced ginger, a spritz of sesame oil and a dash of seasonings can be just as delectable as any dish served up in any fancy restaurant in a matter of minutes and without that hefty price tag. A big bowl of leafy greens poached in a homemade fish and pork broth doesn't hurt either! Bon appetit!
