Smoked Salmon Spaghetti

Published Wednesday, 26 November, 2008

so easy and so tasty



  • 1. smoked salmon cut into thin strips - i like to use quite alot of smoked salmon because the saltiness cuts through the creamyness of the sauce but you can use less. It depends on your taste (and budget lol)
  • 2. 1 large lemon
  • 3. 1 small tub of creme fraiche (i use low fat)
  • 4. 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 5. 2 cloves of garlic peeled and roughly chopped
  • 6. a splash of white wine
  • 7. chopped chives (fresh or dried)
  • 8. spaghetti (or any pasta)
  • 9. salt and pepper (preferably freshly ground)
  • 10. cooking oil


1. cook the pasta acording to the packet instructions (aka in boiling water with a little salt)

2. fry the chopped onion and garlic in a pan with a little oil.

*tip* dont chop the garlic to finely or it will burn if you put it in at the same time as the onions.

3. add a splash of white wine to the onions and garlic and reduce.

4. add the creme fraiche, chives (to taste), the zest of the lemon, pepper and a little salt (remember the smoked salmon is salty so dont add too much salt).

5. Leave on a low heat until the pasta is cooked.

*Tip* the sauce is so quick that it should be ready before the pasta.

6. meanwhile maranade the salmon in the juice of the lemon.

7. When the pasta is cooked strain and stir in the sauce. Finally add the salmon (it will cook slightly because of the heat from the pasta & sauce but it will still taste great!)

8. Serve and enjoy!

*tip* grate over some fresh parmessan for some extra flavour!
