Cured salmon is two things: Delicious, and expensive. This recipe is two things: Easy, and cheap. In the summer, it also involves no cooking or having to spend time near a hot stove.
When I’m at the market, it doesn’t take much to catch my eye, especially when I see something cheap. You know that saying, “don’t shop hungry?” Totally true. I was on a mission to buy stuff for an upcoming recipe but instead saw two tilapia for under $4.
