Spicy Maple-Soy Salmon…on a budget

We all know that seafood is healthy and delicious for you, especially salmon, loaded with lots of protein, Vitamin D, omega-3’s and good fats. But it can get pretty pricey. A salmon filet from your grocery store may cost you $8 a pound. Skip this route and go to a big Asian supermarket. Most Asian markets are going to be consistently cheaper than your traditional chain supermarket, and have a much wider and fresher selection of ingredients.  This week I went in and found that salmon fillets were $5.00 a pound. Better than the other grocery store, but I still wasn’t willing to pay that much. After a little searching, I found salmon belly for only a $1.49 a pound! Score!
