This is very quick and easy to make, and tastes great. I used a packet of Barilla #13 bavette, 300 grams of smoked salmon, pure cream, 1 1/2 tsp of dried dill tips, and everything else as listed. I also added a little sea salt and plenty of cracked black pepper. Next time I'll use fresh dill and will add a bit more tomato paste. My SO gives it a 5!
