Leftover Salmon Recipe

added by ourgoodlifeuk

So you have cooked your side of slamon by the fire and had a gorgeous meal from it, now what to do with the leftovers? When going about recipes like this there really are only a few simple rules... and even they don't need to be adhered to rigidly. First try and think of the flavours that naturally go with your leftover protein (beef, lamb, chicken, fish etc.) e.g. apple with pork, rosemary with lamb... you get the idea. Then think of the textures that would seem right with it e.g. if you shred your leftover pork and fry it until crispy then it would lend itself to a crispy stir fry with rice or noodles. Finally try and think of another flavour that might just lift the meal from the ordinary to the sublime, e.g. adding a squeeze of lemon juice to give it a fresh edge. Well that's enough of the theory lets get down to business!

Recipe

Chorizo, bacon, mushroom and pea pasta

added by ourgoodlifeuk

This is one of the quickest and simplest recipes I know, and yet it is the one that is requested by Fay (my wife) the most! It always leaves you wanting more... You can always omit either the chorizo or the bacon if you find it slightly over powering!
