I saw this on The Big Breakfast (Channel 4), about 15 years ago and have been making a variation of it ever since.

It's the simplest recipe I know - I dare you to get this one wrong!

There is a slightly more complex version here, though it's hardly challenging either.

  1. Remove the skin from the salmon and remove any pin-bones - tweezers are good for this
  2. Cut the salmon into 1" x 1" chunks (2.5 cm cubes)
  3. In a large pan, bring the soup almost to the boil and then immediately reduce to a simmer
  4. Place the salmon chunks in the soup and simmer for 4 minutes
  5. Cook the pasta as directed, drain and cover
  6. Add the prawns and stir for a minute or so
  7. Pour the pasta into the soup, mix well
  8. Arrange on a serving dish

Serving suggestions

Serve hot, maybe with a salad if you need to stretch it to four people. There is enough here for two gluttons though!
