So, I’m extending my blog to include a few other dishes that people cook for me as requested by said people and the first such post follows dinner at the Pulhams’. Tri made her classic salmon and asparagus pappardelle in a white wine sauce with lemon zest and parsley. Proper tasty.
I’m a big fan of smoked mackerel and for dinner tonight I just added some lemon zest and baked it in foil. It was accompanied by San Sebastien inspired potatoes which I am calling Patatas Sebastien (my mate Steve calls his version Paprika Potatoes). The potatoes were baked in foil for 45 mins, then sliced and added to a roasting tin with heated extra virgin olive oil. Rosemary, pimenton and rock salt were added before returning to the oven and roasting for 20 mins.
This is a very quick and tasty favourite. Wholemeal spaghetti (wholemeal spaghetti has a delicious nuttiness to it) with black olives, toasted pine nuts, tuna and pesto. Liberal drizzle of olive oil and some fresh ciabatta.
