While brain storming with Teama Cuisina on Live Below the Line challenge , one of the more mature sistars came up with a brilliant idea mashallah,
“Why don’t we make soup from salmon heads that are only 50p in the market”
So inshallah this weekend we are having a trail run, if we can keep the cat away from the soaking salmon heads.
While out on the prowl , buying and now more aware of prices, we notice that in East London things are so much cheaper, mashallah, alhamdulilah.
For example you get about 16 bananas for a pound in the markets in East London , where as Westside, they are 6 for a pound. Hmmmmmm smells like something fishy is going on.
Cucumbers are 3 for a pound, avocados are 60p each and those are nice ones, coriander and parsley are 33p to 50p a bunch in Watney Market on a good day.And the beat goes on…..
Still , some people are too stuck up to go to Watney Market, seriously its their lost, especially when it comes to food and especially when it come to this challenge Southall is also another great place, full of Asians,full of healthy food, mashallah but as my mechanic says “What if you don’t have the money to go to Southall?”
Its fair point !
Look out for the Salmon Soup recipe this week end, inshallah it will be different.
