Salmon and Cabbage

So, my neighbor has a "fish guy". He exchanges services with various types of people, and occasionally gets fresh local fish. The local salmon is amazing. And my neighbor is a bit of a fish snob. He'll ONLY eat it fresh, so he gives us whatever he can't eat that night.

We eat some fresh and promptly freeze the rest (I'm not a fish snob).

Our neighbor gave us some salmon last night. Yum!

Glazed Salmon
1 salmon fillet
juice of 1 lemon
soy sauce

I'm not estimating the cost, because it will depend on what you pay for salmon. And mine was free.

Mix lemon juice, soy sauce, mustard, honey in a bowl.

Saute salmon in a skillet, 5 mins each side (depends on how thick the salmon is). Add the glaze, cook until thick. I always have to cook it covered for a few minutes to cook it through.

Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

This simple recipe originated here. I adjusted it a bit.

1/2 head red cabbage, chopped: 0.75
1 T olive oil: 0.11
1/2 onion, diced: 0.20
1.5 T sugar: 0.05
2 T balsamic vinegar: 0.11
salt and pepper

Total: $1.22 for two generous servings.

Saute onion in oil until golden brown. Add cabbage, increase to medium-high heat, cook 5 min. Add salt, pepper, sugar, and vinegar, saute 5 min. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 20-30 min.

We had Salmon (Asian), Red cabbage (German), and Middle Eastern flat bread.
