Piquant salmon pasta

    25 min

    This dish was constructed after defrosting fresh salmon fillets that didn't get used the day before - hence the need for a satisfying quick dish - make as indulgent or as healthy as you feel - the good thing is it also has an edge!! Serve with salad or pitta/garlic/crusty bread.
