At $3.99 (Now $3.69) for a pound of frozen salmon, I wanted to give it a try, and my husband was excited to see that there was salmon on the menu. My kids were just happy to see something else than chicken, and it is funny what a difference it means to call it salmon instead of fish.
The Wild Caught Salmon Fillets from Aldi is sold under the Sea Queen brand, and the salmon comes from the Northeast Pacific waters.The pink salmon is skinless, boneless and come in separate vacuum packed pouches.
According to the package one serving of pink salmon provides 1270 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids.
I found a grilled salmon recipe at Allrecipes.com., and I changed it around a bit to fit the ingredients I had on hand.
- 1 pound salmon fillets
- pepper to taste
- garlic powder to taste
- salt to taste
- 3 tablespoons and soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons water
- Oil for oiling the grill pan
- Mix the ingredients in a bowl with lid, carefully turn the salmon in the mixture and refridgerate it for 1 - 2 hours.
- Oil the grill pan, and grill for about 4 minutes on each side, or until the salmon reaches about 140 degrees F.
- If you think the salmon is getting to dark on the grill, transfer it to a baking dish and continue heating in the oven at 350 degrees F.
Serve with rice and grilled vegetables.
