Instructions
  1. Drain the oil from the tin and retain, mash the sardines in a small bowl, add the oil from tin as needed for your correct consistency. Mix in the olives and shallot.
  2. Place lettuce leaves on a slice of bread or toast, top with cucumber slices, then top with the sardine mixture.
  3. Serve open faced or with the second slice of bread or toast on top.
Recipe Notes

If using tinned sardines in olive oil, figure about 59 Baht/tin/1 sandwich. This would cost about $1.73 per sandwich, if you make two sandwiches, this would be about 87 Baht per sandwich, reasonable and healthy.

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.

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the evaporated milk, egg, salt, pepper, and cayenne until combined then set aside.
  2. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until just tender, drain, and return to pot and add the butter and reduce the temp to low, toss the pasta until the butter is melted. Pour in the milk mixture and stir until well mixed. Raise the heat to medium, stirring occasionally for about 3 to 5 minutes or until the sauce comes to a simmer.
  3. Remove the pot from heat and stir in both cheeses until melted and mixed in, then stir in the bacon.
  4. Serve, garnish additional bacon and Bleu cheese if desired.
Recipe Notes

Bacon would cost about 150 Baht, the Bleu cheese about 150 Baht, and the Cheddar about 90 Baht. For 3 servings, this is about $3.82 per serving, not a cheap meal but sounds really good for a once in a while treat.

Canned salmon here for me is pricey, about $4.50, and that is the small can, I have never seen a large can of salmon here. Frozen Norwegian salmon fillets, about 140-160 grams each are just over $2 each, so in addition to just a steamed fillet for dinner, the fillets can be steamed and used in recipes calling for canned salmon. Steamed salmon seemed to be the answer to that. This is a 2 in 1 recipe, one if you want steamed salmon for a dinner (seasoned) and one for just steamed to use in another recipe, such as salmon patties or a salmon pasta salad. I will use a rice cooker steamer basket to cook these when I make them.

Instructions
To Serve
  1. You can use the small fillets, a large fillet, or the steak cuts. I leave the skin on and will remove the skin and bones after they are steamed. If using frozen, thaw, remove from the package, quick rinse. For fresh, quick rinse.
  2. For each fillet, if there is thin ends, just fold them to make a more uniform thickness, this is to ensure even cooking. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. You can use a rice cooker with a steamer basket, or a pot with steamer insert and tight fitting lid. Lightly oil the steamer basket or insert. Use either method, heat the ingredients except the salmon to a boil.
  4. Simmer the liquid for 20 minutes to allow the flavors to blend, then quickly open the rice cooker or pot, place the salmon in, and close, steam for 5-6 minutes, don't peak, just let them steam. End result is a pale orange color. If you have not done this before, target internal temp is 63 C or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove skin, it will easily pull right off.
  5. Serve with a green salad and bread for a light, nutritious meal.
To Use in another recipe
  1. Add water that is below the steamer basket in a rice cooker or below a steamer insert in a pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Place the skinned salmon fillets, folded as needed, in the steamer when the water is boiling and steam for 5-6 minutes, don't peak, just let them steam. End result is a pale orange color. If you have not done this before, target internal temp is 63 C or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove from the steamer and allow to cool to room temp.
  3. Figure three 140-160 gram fillets to equal about a standard can (not a tuna fish size can), about 2 cups of cooked salmon.
  4. Once cooled, flake or chunk with two forks. There, you just made a large can of salmon. Use in recipes calling for canned salmon.
Recipe Notes

Each salmon fillet (140-160 Baht) is 69 Baht, about $2. Using 3 fillets of this size is $6 per large can, not $4.50 per small can like tuna. Still costly, but much better than the small cans, and better taste. I will make this soon and give better numbers on the cost but for right now, this is fairly accurate.

For 3 servings, this is about $2 per serving. For serving when 3 fillets are steamed and used as a large can of tuna, the price per serving will be less.

  1. Lightly butter your slow cooker, place everything inside, cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.
  2. Stir well and top with shredded mozzarella if desired. Cover and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes to let the cheese melt.
  3. Serve with a salad on the side for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

The ground beef would be about 100 Baht/500 grams, the Cream cheese about 120 Baht, 2 cups of Cheddar about 100 Baht, and 1 cup of Mozzarella about 70 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $2.86 per serving. I think the 6 servings is more accurate, especially if this is served with a salad and maybe dinner rolls, then the cost would be about $1.91 per serving.

  1. For the kidney beans, you can use a can or if making from dry, you will need to cook those first, once cooked use 1 1/2 cups of beans in place of a can. BUT, the kidney beans can be substituted with any type of beans you prefer, or any vegetable you prefer.
  2. For the condensed cream of mushroom soup, first, making the shortcut is highly recommended and very easy. If you want to use cream of celery, add celery in place of the beans, that would be delicious! Shortcut for that soup is listed in the Recipe Notes section.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the soup and the stock, amount of stock needed is dependent on how much sauce you would like. Set this aside.
  4. Layer in this order into your slow cooker, first the browned and drained beef, then onions, then carrots, then beans or a vegetable of your choice, then the potatoes on the top.
  5. Pour the soup mixture over the top, cover, and cook on Low setting for up to 10 hours. You are looking for tender potatoes, can check at 8 hours.
  6. About 10 to 20 minutes before you are ready to serve, sprinkle on the cheese, cover, and let it melt. Cheese is optional, if you do not want to use cheese, just omit that.
Recipe Notes

The beef will cost about 200 Baht/kilo. The cheese, about 90 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $2.13 per serving. If you can get local sourced beef from a village market, you can reduce the cost per serving.

  1. Take the prepared dough out of the fridge, coat a 18x13 inch rimmed baking sheet with the olive oil. Gently and gradually stretch dough until it reaches the edges of baking sheet. (If dough springs back or is stiff to work with, let it rest 10 minutes before continuing. You may need to let it rest more than once.)
  2. Preheat your oven to 250 C.
  3. Cover dough on baking sheet tightly with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place until it is puffed and full of air bubbles, 30 to 40 minutes.
  4. Once dough has risen in baking sheet, top with mozzarella and provolone, dot pie with tomato sauce, and top with the onion and olives.
  5. Bake until golden brown and crisp on bottom and sides, 20 to 30 minutes.
  6. Cut into squares and serve.
Recipe Notes

The Mozzarella cheese is about 220 Baht/for the 340 grams. Provolone I cannot price but a guess is about 150 Baht. For 6 servings (at least), this is about $1.82 per serving.

Shortcuts: Grandma Style Pie (Pizza) Dough, Pasta Sauce.
