Made this for dinner last week.  The recipe says you can use butter or olive oil so I went with olive oil.  It doesn't actually tell you what to do with the smoked salmon but based on the picture on P53, we determined that you just stir it through the cooked pasta before serving.

The dish worked really well however we all thought it was slightly lacking something.  I would make it again but perhaps add garlic or use garlic olive oil and see how that goes.

3.5/5

Thanks Asha. I don't think I have made much from that book at all. Perhaps some dill may be nice in it if it doesn't have it already. I guess it has lemon in it.

This is the first dish I have made from this one too cookie1.

Some of the dishes have looked ok but I have discovered from experience that most seafood seems to overcook when cooked in the TM bowl.  I usually end up doing sauces in the bowl and steaming the seafood in the Varoma and that seems to work much better but I have been hesitant to try a lot of the recipes in this book for this reason.

I had a disaster with the Pennette with Saffron P65 so am not sure if I am game to try anything else.  Perhaps I'll give one of the risottos a go and see how that turns out.

Well I tried making the Risotto Al Salmone but it wasn't a winner unfortunately.  I'll post a separate review but I'm not going to try any of the other recipes in this book in a hurry.  Too many other great recipes to try!

I have to agree with the "too many other recipes to make. "
