Farfalle salmon and cream

Farfalle panna and salmon

Hello blog!

I had a few days off. My brother came to visit me with his wife and my 6 months old nephew. It’s been lovely to have the  table full of nice food  shared with the people I love most.
Of course after my holidays at work I had loads to catch up at work! But here we go again.
Today recipe is the one I made the first evening with my reunited family!

Ingredients for 4 people:

  • 500 gr of farfalle pasta
  • 200 gr of double thick fresh cream
  • 300 gr of fresh salmon filet
  • half onion
  • 3 spoons of butter
  • salt and pepper as needed

Start taking the skin off your salmon. I hate doing it, that’s when my partner comes handy! Dice it in big pieces and put aside.

Grams to cups to ounces

In this days I’ve been asked quite a few times the same questions about measuring conversion from and to cups, grams, ounces!
I just realise that not only Italian and English people eat different food and speak different languages, but also have different ways to weight food!
I wrote down here What I’ve been using in this years to convert pretty much everything! You just need to applicate this conversions to your recipes!

 

How many grams do I need for a cup of:

Butter 226 Gr

Flour 128 Gr

Sugar 200 Gr

Honey 240 Gr

Milk 240 Gr

How much a ounce Weight in Grams:

1 = 30 Gr
3 = 90 Gr
4 = 120 Gr
8 = 225 Gr
10 = 285 Gr
12 = 360 Gr
16 = 450 Gr

Have fun
