smoked salmon, spinach and goat's cheese omelette

We’re going to be away for a couple of days, so I’m Using Stuff Up. Aldi had some smoked salmon at half price last week, so I bought a pack. About 2/3rds went into a pasta dish, and the rest was still in the fridge. As was about half a bag of baby spinach.

I won’t tell you how to make an omelette – you’ll all have your own way, and anyway, I’m not very good at them 🙂 But I made a 4-egg omelette, scattered the salmon, spinach and  about a quarter of an Aldi goat’s cheese over the mix, folded it, and we scoffed it. And it was dead good.

About 410 calories, as far as I can tell.

smoked salmon and pasta

There must be gazillions of recipes for this, but this is what I cooked tonght. if you can even call it cooking, to be honest. 

serves 2

Put 13og of pasta on to boil

While it’s cooking, slice 125g smoked salmon and one red pepper (remove seeds). 

When the pasta is done, drain it and return it to the pan. Add the salmon and pepper, a slug of lemon juice, loads of black pepper, and half a tub of low fat creme fraiche. 

And that’s it.  About 420 calories a serving, so far as I can tell. 

Handy tip: do ensure that the smoked salmon *isn’t* still in the freezer when you start. I didn’t.
