Another meal, another recipe!

This time Salmon, Mushrooms and Pesto pasta.


Fusilli pasta enough for two
Two tbl spoons of green pesto
1 salmon fillet
150g chestnut mushrooms

2 small garlic cloves
lemon juice

Season the salmon with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Boil water and but the pasta to cook with a bit o salt.

In the mean time, wash the mushrooms and slice them finely. Dice the garlic and fry it slightly with the olive oil in a wok. Add the mushrooms (season them with salt and pepper) and the salmon fillet as soon as the mushrooms start getting watery. Stir every now and then. Flake the salmon fillet with a fork as it cooks. Cook until the mushrooms start getting soft. Be careful to don't overcook the mushrooms and to don't dry the salmon!!

Add the pasta to the mushrooms and salmon. Add the pesto and stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste, if needed.
