Last night was Di’s turn in the kitchen and she made delicious linguine pasta with salmon pieces: a product that is fairly new to our markets. It is a packet containing off-pieces of salmon after the larger bits have been packed as slices. These off-pieces are ticker than normal packaged salmon slices but still small and therefore are perfect for use in pasta with salmon. Di just added a little stock with some milk rather than cream, which we did not have in the fridge, and a little flavourings and voila a delightful pasta sauce was made from nothing.
She fixed a wonderful lettuce salad accompanied by the usual suspects plus a new miscreant: Greek feta. Accompanying this unholy alliance was a sublimely delicious table wine from our Swan Valley, Houghton’s Chardonnay Semillon.
