Salmon and prawn tagliatelle (simple version)

From Cookipedia

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.

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!
