Thai Salsa Over Salmon
This recipe is definitely a power-packed punch of flavor! I absolutely love this salsa recipe, and having this wild-caught salmon fillet underneath it is the perfect combination.
Some of you may be asking “How in the world is wild-caught salmon cheap?!?” Well, this is definitely a frugal meal, and here’s how! Aldi’s sells wild-caught salmon in the freezer section, in a 4 pack package for $3.97!!!! Yes, that’s just $1 per fillet!
I was super excited when I saw this deal, and now eating salmon is on my regular menu plan because it’s affordable!
So getting back to the recipe, here you go! Enjoy!
