Frequently Asked Questions
Which dairy free green pesto do you use?
Any Free From green pesto would work however the most affordable and my favourite is the Asda Free From Green Pesto.
Which gluten free pasta do you use?
Again, any Free From pasta will work for this recipe. I’m a big fan of the Garofalo Penne Pasta and find this doesn’t fall apart like some other pastas, but I also like the Sainsbury’s Free From Penne which can be easier to get hold of.
How do you make sure the gluten free pasta doesn’t fall apart when cooking it?
My tricks when cooking gluten free pasta are to make sure you add plenty of water to the pan (more than you think you need), stir the pan constantly and drain a minute or two earlier than the packet states. This will stop it from breaking up like a lot of gluten free pasta can do.
How do I cook the salmon if I don’t have an air fryer?
You can also fry the salmon in a frying pan for the same amount of time using a little extra olive oil. Turn half way through cooking.
Can this be stored in the fridge and reheated?
I tend to find the salmon in this recipe is best served fresh and not reheated. However the pasta can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheated when needed.
