Creamy Salmon Pasta


Smoked salmon was on special at the supermarket today, YAY! I’m quite partial to a bit of smoked salmon, don’t like fish, but love smoked salmon. I’m weird, I know 😀

Anyhoo, Due to that delicious fact creamy salmon pasta was on the menu for dinner tonight so I thought I’d share my recipe with you, it’s scrummy!


500g     Pasta ( I normally make this with fettuccine but all I had in the cupboard was orecchiette)

300g     Smoked Salmon, cut into small pieces

2 tubs   Creme Faiche or Sour Cream

2 tbs      Fresh Chives, chopped

2 tsp      Dill, fresh or dried, whatever you have on hand

40g       Parmesan Cheese, grated

salt and pepper to taste


1. Cook pasta in a big pot of boiling, salted water according to instructions. Reserve about 1 cup of pasta water before draining pasta and putting aside for a minute.

2. In the same pot, add 1/2  the reserved pasta water, creme fraiche, herbs, cheese and salmon, stir well to combine and bring to a slow simmer. Season to taste. If it still looks too thick for you, you can add more pasta water.

3. Stir pasta back into the sauce.

4.  EAT!

Hope you enjoy it!
