Frugal food: Passover salmon

This is a recipe that I got from my dear friend, Chaya S., about ten years ago.  I often make this during the year, but it's especially great on Passover, because the ingredients are so simple, the preparation is about 5 minutes and this feeds a crowd.  Use one bag of Costco's Kirkland Frozen Atlantic Salmon fillets or Kirkland Frozen Steelhead Trout...either one is perfect for this recipe and both are kosher for Passover this year (according to the OU).

You will need:
  • 2 lbs. salmon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp. pickling spice
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 3/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 T. salt

Arrange sliced onions in bottom of pot. Wash and rinse salmon and place on top of onions. Pour the rest of the ingredients on top. Marinate overnight in the pot. Simmer on the stove for 30 minutes. Serve chilled. Garnish each piece with a slice of lemon.

Super simple and delicious.
