  1. Mix in a small bowl, the garlic powder, basil, and salt, rub on the fish fillets.
  2. Melt the butter in a large non stick skillet, when hot, add the salmon and cook until browned and flakes with a fork, about 5 minutes per side.
  3. Serve with a lemon or lime wedge on top. A seasoned rice and steamed vegetable would be nice with this dish.
Recipe Notes

At 69 Baht for each salmon fillet, this is about $2.03 per serving. Good for a once in a while meal.

For as long as I have been in Thailand, I have never eaten Dorado. Dorado is known as Dolphinfish (it is a fish, not a dolphin), and in the US, particularly Hawaii, known as Mahi Mahi. This is an excellent table fish. I will use the Dorado term here.

  1. Preheat your oven to 230 C.
  2. Rub the fish fillets with olive oil and place into a baking dish, bake for about 20 minutes or until the fish easily flakes with a fork.
  3. While the fish is cooking, in a small saucepan, melt the butter, stir in the lemon juice, garlic, and hot sauce and then add the tomato and spring onion. Cook while stirring until good and hot.
  4. Remove the fish from the oven and plate, spoon the sauce over the fish and serve. A rice side dish and a vegetable would be great.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this for Dorado, for Pangasius this would be low cost.

Variant: 1. Use any whitefish.

  4. Serve with rice and a steamed vegetable for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

Pangasius would cost about 120 Baht/kilo. For 6 servings, this is about 60 cents per serving.

  1. In a large pot melt the butter on medium heat then cook the onions, mushrooms and celery until tender.
  2. Add the chicken stock and potatoes and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the fish and simmer for 10 minutes more. This photo was just after I added the fish.
  3. Mix together the clam juice (or shrimp stock) and flour until smooth, add to the chowder and season to taste with Old Bay, salt and pepper.
  4. Stir in the evaporated milk and on a low simmer heat until just before boiling, remove from heat.
  5. Serve with crumbled bacon on each bowl if desired.
Recipe Notes

Pangasius would cost about 120 Baht/kilo. For 8 servings, this is about 45 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Old Bay Seasoning.

Variants: 1. Use mushroom stock in place of chicken stock. 2. Omit the clam juice and flour part, it comes out very nice without this part.

  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, then add the spaghetti and cook until just tender, drain, rinse under cold water, toss with 1/4 cup of olive oil, cover and set aside.
  2. Open the tins of sardines and drain the oil into a non stick pan, heat the pan over medium heat then add the garlic and saute until just golden brown, then add the sardines, breaking them up a it with the spatula, and saute another minute or so more,
  3. Stir in the breadcrumbs and cheese, when mixed in, add the parsley, black pepper, remove from heat and add the pasta and mix, serve.
Recipe Notes

For sardines in olive oil, I have only seen one brand, Ayam, for 59 Baht per 120 gram tin, these are very good. If you make your own sardines in olive oil, you can reduce this price just a bit. Using 2 tins of sardines and 4 servings, this is about 87 cents per serving.

Shortcuts: Sardines in Olive Oil, Seasoned Breadcrumbs.

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. For the salmon, you can use a 500 gram fillet, use 4-5 smaller fillets, use leftover cooked salmon, or even canned salmon, well drained and the approximate weight stated. The salmon has to be cooked and flaked, you can bake or steam the fillets, up to you. Season with garlic salt and black pepper before cooking, if baking, brush with olive oil as well. Let the salmon cool to room temperature. Then flake the salmon with two forks and remove and discard the skin and any bones, depending on the cut you use.
  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat a tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of butter and the onion and bell pepper. Cook until softened and starting to turn golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes then remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, and the salmon, bread crumbs, eggs, mayo, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, and parsley. Stir to combine.
  4. Add the onion and bell pepper, and mix that in then form into 13-14 patties. You can use either large tablespoons of the mixture or use an ice cream scoop. Flatten the portion out and form into about 1/2 inch thick patties.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a large non stick skillet over medium heat and once butter is done sizzling, add half of the salmon cakes and fry for 3 to 4 min per side or until golden brown. If salmon cakes brown too quickly, reduce heat. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Add remaining oil and butter and repeat cooking remaining salmon cakes.
  6. Serve with a tartar sauce or dipping sauces of your preference.
Recipe Notes

Four 140 gram fillets is 96 Baht each and is 560 grams. For 4 servings, this is about $2.82 per serving. High cost for Thailand, should be much less in the US or where fresh or even canned salmon is available. Great flavor and would be great for visiting friends and family.

Inspired by the recipe Salmon Cakes (Salmon Patties) from Natasha's Kitchen.

  2. Top with sardines that are split in half lengthwise. Season with some white pepper, top with the other slice of bread.
  3. Enjoy. (And that is a cracking great photo as well, thank you Samantha!)
Recipe Notes

If using tinned sardines in olive oil, figure about 59 Baht/tin/2 sandwiches. This would cost about 87 Baht per sandwich, reasonable and healthy.

Variants: As with any sandwich, use your imagination. Open faced or closed, substitute olive oil for mayo, substitute mustard for mayo, and spicy mustard even better! Add veggies you like.

Shortcut: Sardines.

  3. Pour the 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter back into the sauce pan, add the garlic and saute on low heat for about 1 minute. Add 3 tablespoons of the lemon juice, remove from heat.
  4. Place the fish in the baking dish, and season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Pour the lemon butter mixture on the fish and top with fresh parsley.

Recipe Notes

Tilapia is low cost, if getting the fish from a open market, the seller will fillet for you for free most times. Tilapia can also be caught on rod and reel in many ponds, making the meal essentially free.

  3. Fry the egg to your liking.
  4. After the egg is cooked, place the rice in a bowl, place the diced avocado on the side of the rice, and the rest of the tuna on another side, and top with the fried egg. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

An average can of tuna will cost about 44 Baht. For one serving this is about $1.29 for the serving. If you cook fresh tuna yourself, figure 68 Baht for a tuna from Tesco, easily makes 2 to 2 1/2 cups of tuna, then your cost for the tuna for this recipe, 1/2 cup, is 50 cents. Great savings and less waste. This is listed as low cost as fresh whole tuna is easy to get.
