Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Pennette salmone! Salmon penne with vodka!

300 grams pennette (small penne) or normal penne
1 chopped red onion
Chopped fresh parsley
250 grams smoked salmon
1 cup of vodka
1 cup of cream
Olive oil

Put the pasta in boiling salted water and allow to cook as you begin to prepare your sauce

Heat a frying pan and add your onions first and then the olive oil. Allow the onions to brown lightly and then add your cut up smoked salmon. Stir together with the onions in order to blend the flavours for a 2-3 minutes. The smoked salmon will naturally begin to break up into flakes, but you can also break them up with your wooden spatula.
Add a good pinch of your chopped parsley and a SMALL pinch of salt. Remember that salmon itself is quite salty so you don’t want to add too much salt.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the glass of vodka. Take precaution if cooking on fire and not electric. Then set fire to the inside of the pan with a match. It will flambé’ nicely with a blue flame as you toss and sauté naturally. After 15 seconds, don’t sauté any more and the flame will die out naturally.
Then add your glass of cream to the mixture. Also add two ladles of boiling water to it from your boiling pasta pan.
Let it then simmer for 2-3 minutes on medium heat, then take it off the heat and add your pasta.
Sauté over medium heat, allowing the pasta to mix into the sauce properly. Add a drizzle of olive oil, and sauté a little more.
Pasta is ready to serve onto serving dish. Garnish with fresh parsley!
