bill granger's poached salmon and orzo salad

What to do with the remaining whale-like portion of home-made gravlaks Hannae brought over? There's only so much salmon and rye bread snacks and scrambled egg and salmon-based breakfasts one can have over a couple of weeks, so we go for broke and try and use the entirety up in Billy G's poached salmon and orzo salad:

I fear it was only mildly successful. You can only slice the salmon so thinly, and even then it's too smokey and oily for the rest of the salad.

A hearty day of being witches and watching Calamity Jane strangely did not begat a raging hunger:
Breakfast: Porridge, honey and toast;
Lunch: Chicken and veg, custard;

poached salmon and orzo salad - Bill Granger, Holiday, p14


  1. I am watching Bill's tasty weekends in the UK at the moment, it makes me homesick. Also I can't believe Bill isn't gay, seriously?

  2. Ha I know! Me and Ana's dad - who normally would never laugh at such things - completely broke down a couple of years ago when we were watching a Bill episode. He was making some sort of fruit salad in the shape of Sydney Opera House, and without a flicker, picked up a massive pepper grinder and said "I love a big tool in my hand in the kitchen".
