Chefs for a day! We made Moroccan Salmon Pasta with Argan Oil

Posted on February 20th, 2011 in favourites,New Hampshire,The Balsams,Uncategorized,YouTube by alex and luke

I insist that you watch this video, then head out and pick up all of the ingredients, including the precious and delicious Argan Oil from Morocco, and recreate the dish for yourself (and then invite us over). You WILL NOT regret it. This is the most marvellously fresh, interesting, and mouthwatering pasta dish we have ever had, and the best part? We made it ourselves (with some guidance from The BALSAMS Executive Chef Joshua Berry of course)!!! Delicious!
