Pasta With Smoked Salmon In Horseradish/Mustard Cream

Rigatoni rigate,  smoked salmon and a creamy velouté – nearly impossible not to like this combination ! 🙂
After we have learned how to make a velouté in my last post, (click here for recipe), and hopefully have a few small containers in the freezer to use at short notice (just defrost in the microwave), wonderful dishes like this one take only a few minutes from start to finish.
The reward for this relatively small effort is a dish which oozes flavor, presentation, elegance and class 🙂 All in a mere few minutes of preparation and cooking time.

Pig’s Tail Souse

:
:
How  many folks have actually tried pig’s tails? Not many in this part of the world I assume. In my opinion, pigs tails are one of the best parts of the pig, but sadly underutilized in the  “civilized world”, were we tend to discard secondary cuts or feed them to the animals (lucky dogs 🙂 ).
Thankfully, lately some of these special cuts have found new fans and pigs tails are now widely available again at your favorite butcher and even in supermarkets.
Buy them fresh, smoked or salted (dry or in brine) for a variety of wonderful dishes. For the following dish I used pigs tails in brine.

Egg’s  and smoked salmon – alway’s a winning combination in my book.
This morning I needed something that could re-vitalize me after a sleepless night, so this easy to prepare beauty was just the right thing. Three minutes of preparation, two minutes of cooking time and voilà – ready for breakfast and a movie, accompanied by a large pot of peppermint tea and a nice pork leg bone  (for Bella ) 🙂

Bon Appetit !   Happy Saturday !

Breakfast Of Champions # 27 – ” Smoked Salmon Sandwich “

<

You  might have noticed in the past few posts when I used smoked salmon that the salmon is sliced much thicker and narrower than we usually cut it. I buy my salmon mostly at publix and while they have different quality salmon to offer, I prefer this “inferior” cut. It is cut from trimmings of the belly, which can not be sliced into the thin, wide slices we usually serve. But in my humble opinion, the texture and taste is far superior to the regular “pretty”part we usually buy.
There you have it – cheaper and better 🙂
