  3. Cook the pasta as per the packet instructions (keep a cup of pasta cooking water).
  4. Heat the remaining 0.5 tbsp olive oil and 3 tbsp butter on medium heat, add the chopped shallots and fry stirring for 3-5 minutes till they are golden.
  5. Add the salmon pieces and fry for 2 minutes; then add the prawns and fry for 2-3 minutes longer.
