I confess to liking salmon, whether it’s smoked, baked, grill or even tinned, so that’s probably why I really like this salmon pate. You need to use red salmon to get a good flavour, that makes it a little more expensive, but it does make a good amount. As it says it’s quick, easy to make and everyone seems to like it. Also, leftovers are great on toast this next morning!!!
It’s a bit strange to see this 70s recipe using tinned carrots and tinned stir fry vegetables. The article says ‘hearty meals – don’t have to mean hours of work”, but I think using apacket of prepared fresh vegetables, that are available now in the supermarket, would be a lot tastier and just as easy.
Unless you’ve already bought 2kg of baby octopus it’s too late to make this recipe for Easter, but don’t worry it’d be good at any time of the year. It comes from a Women’s Weekly ‘Let’s Go Greek!’ supplement, I like it because it gives clear instructions on how to prepare the baby octopus.
The beauty of all the different varieties of lasagne is that they can be prepared in advance and cooked when needed. This is the first time though I’ve seen a salmon version. I have a recipe for another seafood one which I make using marinara mix I buy from the supermarket and that tastes pretty good, so this one could be worth trying.
With Christmas on the horizon I’m starting to look for recipes that will work on the big day. I think this salmon loaf would make a great starter. You could make it the day before and serve it cold with the yoghurt sauce and a light salad.
