Smoked salmon and rocked salad pasta

Today a quick but yummy dish:

pasta with smoked salmon and rocked salad.

First of all on one side in a sauce pan boil the pasta. Add it to the water only once it is boiling. Stirr and cook till it is “al dente”. (tasting is always the best way to check the perfect cooking point).

On the other hand in a sauce pan stirr in some extra virgin oil one onion, cut in small pieces together with some pieces of garlic.

When the onions are a bit cooked add the smoked salmon cut in small pieces, and stirr.

Octopus salad

Octopus …

Usually it is sold already cleaned.

So just boil it like it is for around 50 minutes or more if necessary, for the meat to become soft.

Then wait for the water to get back at room temperature.

Aubergines steaks and hot salad …

Aubergines …

amazing veg …

This time, it takes minimum half an hour work, but it’s worthy.

Cut one onion in small pieces and stirr them in a sauce pan with some extra virgin olive oil and garlic.

20150328_202823

Add some celery too in tiny pieces.

20150328_203227

Cut one aubergine in small cubes and add them in the saucepan too.

20150328_203816       20150328_204119

Let it cook a few minutes, then add a can of tomato sauce, with half a glass of water if necessary, not to burn it if there’s not much water from the vegetables and the tomato sauce.

20150328_204158

Stirr.

20150328_204326

Let it cook.

20150328_213107

On the side prepare the other aubergine you have to cut in little round discs.

20150328_204044

With some bread crumbs in a plate, and one egg stirred in a little bowl …

20150328_21061820150328_210704

Pass the aubergines in the egg liquid and then in the bread crumbs.

20150328_210708

Fry then the aubergines so prepared in some peanut oil, turning each of them after a few minutes.

20150328_210859

And that’s it! Use some special paper to remove the excess of oil.

20150328_211223  20150328_213048  20150328_213101

Then in a plate next to the fried aubergines put the hot aubergine salad prepared before.

Seabass in the oven. Simple and healthy.

Seabass …

A lovely taste fish meat!

20150303_201822

Simply once cleaned from the insides and from the scales, put the seabass in a bakery tin with just a little bit of extra virgin olive oil and some garlic.

20150303_201558

Put it in the oven already hot and cook minimum half an hour.

To see if it’s cooked the best rule is to see if the meat is easy detachable from the central spine bone.

20150303_211901 20150303_211331

If the answer is yes, and the meat is not sticky, then the fish is cooked! And of course the eye has to become white!

So enjoy!

20150303_212209

I did it with a glass of Le Arenarie 2013 from Sella & Mosca, Sardinian winery (a Sauvignon wine zesty even in the colour, fresh, with a touch of minerality, a slight pleasant bitterness (graphite) and an echo of green cooked notes, ginger, lime, candied cedar, almond … ), and as a side some salad! just with extra virgin olive oil and a bit of fresh garlic and salt!

Thanks again!

Take care
