Simple Salmon Said

Everyone needs quick but tasty food. A meal for times you don’t have the energy let alone the inclination to spend ages preparing and cooking a good tasty meal. But something that is a bit special.

That’s a lot of boxes to tick!

In our case it’s apres-ski food that requires minimal effort, in my current state that means 1 handed cooking.

But more than that this meal is one of my favourites.

Smoked Salmon and Dill Spaghetti


Simple Salmon Said Spaghetti

Ingredients ~

Grab a pack of spaghetti, pick up some smoked salmon (the off-cuts are perfect for this), a pot of creme fraiche, garlic cloves, fresh dill and capers.

Method ~

  • Cook the spaghetti as per the instructions, I prefer it al-dente.
  • While its cooking chop a clove of garlic and 2 handfuls of dill, roughly chop or tear the salmon into small bite size pieces.
  • When the spaghetti is cooked, drain it and put it to one side.
  • In the pan add a dash of olive oil and on a low heat warm it  through then add the garlic, fry for a minute so it starts to release its flavour.
  • Now add a tablespoon of capers, mix in, then add a tablespoon of dill. Give it a stir.
  • Now add 2 – 3 tablespoons of creme fraiche and another stir.
  • Next put the salmon pieces into the pan, and give it all a gentle stir.
  • Add the spaghetti back into the pan, and give everything a good mix.
  • Sprinkle the remaining handful of dill into the dish.
  • Check for seasoning – a grind of black pepper is good.

Perfect with a glass of something chilled, dry and white
