Step 1

Here are four easy steps for the perfect open salmon pasta:

Step 2

To make the "salmon" tofu, drain the tofu for up to 30 minutes, put a gentle weight on top to facilitate the operation (not too heavy, as not to crush the tofu block). Cut the tofu block into slices and make some diagonal scores with a knife on one side. In a blender, put the beetroot juice, capers, dill, lemon, half nori sheet, and process until smooth. Pour the mixture on our cut tofu slices and put in the fridge for one hour. Remove excess beetroot marinade, cut into 1 cm cubes, and roast in a skillet for 5 minutes per side in olive oil and reserve on the side.
