To make this tasty salmon dinner, you’ll need two packets of salmon with garlic and herb marinade and crumb, olive oil, risoni, tomato and chilli pesto and baby rocket leaves. It will be ready in 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, add the risoni to a saucepan of boiling water and cook following the packet directions until al dente. Reserve a third of a cup of the cooking liquid and then drain. Return the risoni to the saucepan. Stir in the tomato and chilli pesto with the reserved cooking liquid. Season with salt and pepper. Add the rocket and gently combine. Serve the salmon with the risoni mixture and drizzle with more olive oil. This dish comes together just using 5 ingredients and is so delicious.
