Our favorite fancy cheap meal is to buy one nice fillet of salmon, and then cook it with BBQ seasoning, flake it, and mix with rice to stretch it out for three people. Serve it with lots of buttered vegetables and it feels kind of like a cookout in the dead of winter. Every once in a while you'll find salmon on sale, if you don't mind buying farm raised. So with the vegetables and rice you're looking at about $2-3 per serving.
