Tuscan Salmon and Prawns with Baby Potatoes
Updated: Apr 2
I wanted to make an Italian dish that did not involve pasta so I came across this dish. I usually use frozen salmon but this time I used fresh salmon, which makes a complete difference in terms of flavour and texture. I am definitely going to be using fresh salmon from now on.
Also, I added prawns and Argentinian Shrimp to the meal to make it extra meaty. The Argentinian shrimp absorbs so much flavour. This is another delicacy that I will be using in my dishes. Watch this space. The baby potatoes were placed in the oven after being seasoning in garlic salt and Italian herbs. This meal was accompanied with delicious stuffed mushrooms and you can find the recipe for that here:
The prep and cooking time for this meal was not too bad and it can be made easily. If you are pressed for time, make it at the weekend. This meal is great for those who aren't pasta fans but looking to try Italian food.
