|Fresh, wild-caught sockeye salmon from Costco Wholesale was $10.99 a pound this week, but a 1.5-pound fillet is enough to serve a family of 5.|

If you can open a can, squeeze a lime and chop fresh herbs, Fresh Wild Salmon with Organic Diced Tomatoes is a snap to prepare.
I rely on Costco Wholesale for wild-caught fillets of sockeye salmon caught in the U.S.A., as well as for limes and cans of Organic Diced Tomatoes.
The herbs come from my garden.
I cut a 1.5-pound fillet ($10.99 a pound) into 5 pieces, squeezed fresh lime juice over them and sprinkled them with chopped mint and oregano, and ground Aleppo red pepper (optional).
Then, I spooned Organic Diced Tomatoes over the salmon pieces and placed them into a pre-heated 375-degree oven.
I line the pan with parchment paper from Costco, and don't have to use spray oil.
|The thickest part of the fillet was cooked rare after 10 minutes. Add 3 minutes to cook through.|
I served the salmon with leftover Lundberg Wild Blend Rice, a GMO-free mixture of wild, brown and black rices available from Costco.
The sockeye salmon was $10.99 a pound this week, up a dollar from the week before.
I also picked up a 2.5-pound bag of frozen wild-caught Hake Loins, a meaty, white fish that makes for excellent eating ($13.99).
As with other frozen fish, I will probably steam the hake or bake the fillets in parchment-paper pouches.
A package of Michigan Blueberries, the equivalent of 3 pints, was $4.99. And 2 pounds of those incomparable Campari Tomatoes were $4.49.

A gooey frittata
A frittata with tomato sauce, pesto and gooey cheese can fool you into thinking your eating a pizza, but you won't have to worry about fattening dough.
I used slices of reduce-fat Jarlsberg Swiss Cheese, fresh Beefsteak Tomato slices and Organic Tomato Sauce -- all from Costco -- and my own homemade pesto sauce.
