Jun 24: Scrambled Eggs with Grilled Asparagus over Smoked Salmon on Fry Bread; Duck Massaman Curry

Lunch

For lunch Foodie Greg wanted something “eggy” so we got scrambled eggs with some leftover grilled asparagus and spring onion, over Wild Caught Smoked Salmon, served on a piece of “fry bread” (bread toasted in the panini press).

  • 2.5 eggs per serve is $1.25 per serve
  • The asparagus was $3.69 and we shared about half a serve, or 46c per serve
  • The smoked salmon was $6.99 or $3.50 per serve
  • Sprouted Rye Bread is 16c per serve
  • Add 50c for heavy cream, seasoning and spring onion.

The eggs were perfectly creamy, having been pulled off the heat just before they were ‘ready’ so that the remaining heat would carry them to temperature. The grilled asparagus and spring onion bought a little flavor and crunch, while the smoked salmon stopped the fry bread from going soggy under the scrambled eggs. An excellent meal for $5.37 per serve.

Dinner

Tonight’s Duck Massaman Curry was prepared yesterday and let sit overnight so it was able to get a long, slow cook, which made the duck tender enough to cut with a spoon!

  • The organic duck legs were $8.99, or $4.50 per serve
  • The curry is $3.38 per can or $1.69 per serve
  • Coconut milk is $1.69 per can or 85c per┬áserve
  • Cashews were $2.99 but we only used half, or 75c per serve
  • Peal onion adds 20c per serve
  • Carrots add 15c per serve
  • Add 33c for brown rice
  • Add 20c for other ingredients.

The massaman curry had a totally different flavor with the change in protein. We felt the duck fat softened the curry heat a little and made the flavor more subtle, but more interesting, than when made with beef. A really excellent meal for $8.67 per serve.
