Feb 1: Trout & Avocado; Mussels in Coconut Red Curry


For lunch we each had a Smoked Trout and Avocado toasted sandwich.

  • The smoked trout is $3.49 per can or $1.75 per serve
  • Sprouted Rye bread is 32c per serve
  • Two avocados were $1.98 but we shared one, or 50c per serve
  • Add 30c for butter.

A good sandwich for $2.87 per serve.


Since it’s “Fishy Friday” we had Mussels in a Coconut Red Curry. We bought a packet of pre-cooked mussels from our local Ralph’s (Kroger). These are obviously a “packaged for retail” version of a food service product. We made half the recipe.

  • The mussels were $2.99 or $1.50 per serve
  • The bell pepper was $1.02 or 51c per serve
  • Coconut milk was $1.29 or 65c per serve
  • Three shallots were 99c and we shared one, or 17c per serve
  • Add 55c per serve for fish sauce, garlic, ginger and seasoning
  • A rustic panini roll was 63c.

We both enjoyed this meal a lot. Quite simple with a lot of warming spices that didn’t dominate the mussels. A tasty and enjoyable meal for $4.01 per serve.
