Aldi, the budget-friendly grocery store, has introduced a new line of healthy, sustainable, eco-friendly dinners (Contessa Cutting Board) for two for $9.99 (that’s only five bucks a meal!) I’m always on the look out for good, inexpensive, easier ways of preparing any meal so I picked up one of Aldi’s new dinner introductions yesterday and decided to give it a try. Since I haven’t had any luck cooking salmon by myself, I decided to give their Moroccan-style wild salmon meal a chance. At first, I was very, very skeptical the product was going to be any good. So, I very haphazardly applied the marinade topping to each piece of salmon. Sorry for that. Next time, I assure you, I will do better at presentation. To sum up my whole experience: the meal was delicious!
In only 23 minutes from start to finish, I was able to prepare a very delicious and healthy meal. I followed the simple, easy-to-read directions and voila’ dinner was served. They even give you recommendations on which wine to pair your meal with! The side dish this prepared dinner meal came with, cauliflower and sweet potato with Moroccan seasoning, was very tasty and very good! Serve side green salad with this dinner and you have a full, satisfying meal. I was impressed AND I want more (choices that is!) If Aldi is only testing the waters to see if their customers will buy this item, the answer is a resounding YES! Bon Appitito!
