Oh, and, er... sorry for hijacking your journal, R&R...
Oh yeah, my best friend in Korea is leaving tomorrow morning. Tonight was her going away, so we opened the second bottle I bought on my birthday. This is your MDA drunk warning!
Budget paleo: not crab cakes
I just used this recipe here but with canned wild salmon instead of pricey crab. I was bloody lovely. When making it, I though 0_0 a whole teaspoon of lemon peel?? But trust me (and Mark or whoever actually made the recipe); it's correct. Luckily, every time I buy a lemon, I freeze the zest if I'm not immediately using it. Budget rule number 36, never waste anything.
Now, the important stuff. Can you taste/feel the bones and skin? No, and yes? The first time I felt bone, I thought it was just crispy edges. So yes, but not really.
It was really good though.
My mom used to make a canned salmon casserole as a quick dinner when I was a kid (this was before the days of fast food when dinosaurs roamed the Earth...) My brother and I would fight over who got to eat the crunchy bones. That's the best part!
Canned salmon is its own thing imo, I sometimes eat it by preference over fresh, knowing that the bones are doing me good as rich in calcium. I find the skin a bit too slimey and 'icky' and pick that off. Kudos on the recipe hack!
