Salmon pasta 

added on 23/1/2008 by DaveA quick and tasty dinner. The key ingredient is the lightly smoked salmon fillets.


  • 2 lightly smoked salmon fillets
  • Bunch of asparagus
  • Baby corn cob
  • Dill (lots)
  • 3 shallots or small onion
  • White wine
  • Creme fraiche (medium tub)
  • 1 lemon
  • Pasta - tagliatelle goes well


  1. Grill the salmon until just cooked; cool slightly and flake into large chunks (do this whilst you do everything else below).
  2. Chop the onion and put a pan on for the pasta
  3. Sweat the onion in a little oil, then add wine and reduce (by about half)
  4. Put the pasta on now to cook.
  5. Add the creme fraiche to the onion and cook down for 3 minutes or so.
  6. Prepare the asparagus (get rid of the woody bit, peel if you're feeling keen) and add to the sauce, chopped in half, along with the baby corn.
  7. Drain the pasta and put into a big bowl; give it a minute or so to dry out.
  8. Tip in the sauce mix, add the salmon, a large handful of dill, juice of 1 lemon, some black pepper and a little salt.
  9. Serve immediately.
