What's for Dinner

When in the US we eat salmon 3-4 times a month. It’s something we miss while in Egypt. No longer. During a recent shopping trip we were excited to see that our favorite store, Spinney’s, now stocks frozen salmon. A quick conversion of the price of 211 LE translated to $13.00 for a half pound. That’s nearly the price we pay in Minnesota so it’s considered very expensive here. We’re sure we are the only ones in our building eating salmon tonight and probably the only ones on our street (maybe even the entire neighborhood!).

In Minnesota we typically grill our salmon on a plank. We don’t have a grill here so we cooked it in our cast iron pan. It looked appetizing as the fragrance filled our apartment with anticipation.

To accompany the salmon we prepared a typical Mediterranean salad consisting of cucumber, tomato, green pepper, onion, cilantro, cumin, olive oil and vinegar.

Potatoes and squash rounded out the tasty meal.
