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.
Hope you enjoy it!
