  • Salmon and Saffron Rice

    Salmon and Saffron Rice

    Ingredients:

    8 oz (250g) Basmati Rice
    2 generous pinches of Saffron strands
    half pt (300ml) Dry white wine
    2 oz (50g) Butter
    1lb (500g) piece of Salmon fillet skinned
    Bunch of fresh chives chopped
    Handful of fresh dill, chopped
    Handful of flat leaf parsley chopped
    Sea salt (or your own choice)
    1 - 6 pinches of chilli powder according to taste

    Method:

    Rinse the rice thoroughly with running water. Put the saffron threads in a bowl together with a sprinkling of salt and the chilli powder. Put the wine in a pan and bring to boiling point then pour over the saffron mixture. Leave to stand for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Then, put half the butter in a pan and melt over a medium heat. Stir the rice into the butter. Add the wine and Saffron mixture. Bring to bubbling, cover and turn the heat as low as possible. Cook the rice until it is tender but still has a slight 'bite' to it (approx. 10 minutes)
    While the rice is cooking cook the salmon by poaching it in a pan of water with the rest of the butter (about quarter pt of water or use wine or half water half wine if you prefer), this should take the same length of time as cooking the rice but if the rice is ready before the fish turn off the heat and put a cloth between the lid and the pan. Cook the salmon until it still grades slightly to a darker pink in the middle, drain and then flake in a serving bowl. When the rice is ready drain and add to the salmon along with the remaining ingredients, stir gently until well incorporated.
    Serve with salad.

    • Quick Tortellini Pasta in a Creamy Sauce
      Pauline
      This recipe was sent in by a reader - thank you.

      We tried this recipe using Morrison's Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini. Recipe worked well but needed approx. half a pint of milk. Sauce was a little bland and next time I think I'd add some herbs for a bit more flavour. Didn't have any cream so that might have made a difference if added.
      Overall it was a nice recipe, extremely quick to make so ideal for a rush meal. Made quite enough for two people, it's very filling.

      Tirumisu

      Absolutely delicious - thanks John and Wendy for this recipe.

      No cooking required but a fridge to chill it in is useful.

      It’s not just pasta for which we have to thank the Italians. Their sensational Tirumisu – literally “pick-me-up” – is one of the world’s best desserts. A delicious combination of sponge layer and creamy filling, flavoured with coffee and Marsala, Tiramisu should not be missed!
