Serves 4

The farfalle, salmon and shrimp combined with cream make a very rich but very welcome dish on a windy, snowy winter evening!

  • 3 oz Tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbs. Butter
  • 4 Jumbo shrimp, chopped small
  • 8 oz Salmon filet, diced
  • 1 Tbs. Shallots or small onions
  • 2 oz Brandy (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in a heavy pan over medium heat, add shallots and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and salmon and cook for another minute.
  2. Now add the brandy, tomato sauce and heavy cream and simmer for 15 minutes over low heat.
