FETTUCCINE ALFREDO

Everyone has their own 5 minute recipe when they are too hungry to wait any longer, yet they want to have something really fattening solid other than just a quick sandwich after a tiring day, don't they? Personally, all of the food I cook, I cook quickly - not because I am too lazy to put more time into it, or I don't care what I eat. Oh I do care, believe me. But because I am fairly determined that tasty food doesn't always take long. This particular recipe is one of those 5 minute yet fattening solid dinners.

You will need: fresh salmon, fettuccine, 33% cream, Parmesan cheese, onion, garlic, oregano, salt, fresh black pepper and olive oil. I do not write proportions, quantities and so on - because it's entirely up to you, your taste and the amount of people you cook for. 

First you boil water and put fettuccine into salted boiling water. It should be considerably salted and literally boiling. I would recommend to keep it a little undercooked - al dente, as Italians would call it. Do not overplay here though, it should stay firm, but not hard. Firstly because it is so much tastier this way, secondly... well because there is no "secondly" here.

Meanwhile chop an onion, squeeze garlic (put a big kitchen knife on it and press it with your palm) and cut salmon into small square pieces. Again quantities are completely up to you.

Fry onion and garlic in olive oil until they redden a little. Here's a tiny secret for you - if you want the taste of garlic to be emphasized you should put it later when cooking. The earlier you add it, the earlier it will fade. When it's almost ready add fish and wait until it whitens out - it will happen really quickly - don't miss the moment otherwise you will end up with salmon pieces all fallen apart.

The moment you see that salmon is almost cooked you add a carton of cream, salt, oregeno and fresh black pepper - both circlets and milled. Stir it thoroughly, reduce fire and put a lid on a pan for a bit. If you want the sauce to be more watery you can add some 10% cream to dilute it. Personally, I like it thicker.

Everyone loves Parmesan, don't they? Wait...? You don't? Well you should!

Pour some of the ready sauce into a bowl, add ready fettuccine, pour some more of the sauce above. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, that you must love by now and some freshly milled pepper. Voila!

Too easy and quick to be true. But oh it so is!
