Dec 11: Shin Ramen; Wild Caught Salmon, Piccata Sauce and Steamed Broccolini


A turn for the cool had us turning to a Shin Noodle Bowl. A pack of four was $3.69 or 93c per serve ($1.23 with vegetable), which proved to be quite generous and a satisfying – if spicy hot – meal. We do, however, only use one of the two flavor pouches.


We have had some good proteins from Aldi, from their Specially Selected range, so we thought we’d try their wild caught Salmon and serve it with a Piccata Sauce and some steamed Broccolini.

  • The Salmon was $11.79 or $5.90 per serve
  • The Broccolini was $2.79 and we served about ⅔ or 93c per serve
  • Black Rice is 44c per serve.

The Salmon was extremely disappointing, particularly compared with the Ahi Tuna and Giant Scallops as they are excellent, and less expensive than the Salmon. We have decided that only Smoked Salmon will make it to our table in the future. A disappointing meal for $7.27 per serve.
