Note

Tips

  • - Buying salmon, choose fillets to have better results. Prefer wild salmon and not farmed salmon.
  • - Generally in Italy if we have some pasta left, we warm it up with excellent results. In this case I suggest not to warm up your tagliatelle combined with marinated salmon. So cook the right amount.

Menu planning

  • - You can choose salmon tagliatelle in your daily menu as main dish or in a dinner party with other courses.
    It's ideal for fish menu, in a meal, buffet-style, eg.

Healthy eating

  • - If you choose this salmon tagliatelle for your family menu you have to consider the presence of salmon and the protein amount. So combine it only with a vegetable dish. Raw or cooked vegetables dressed only with a teaspoon of olive oil per head. Another choice: complete your meal with fresh fruits.
    Here are the doses per head: 60g (2.1 ounces) pasta, 100g (3 1/2 ounces) fresh salmon, 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, aromatic herbs and 1 medium-size orange.
  • - This is a tomato-free sauce. So it's ideal for people who can't eat tomatoes.
