Salmon wholemeal pasta with crème fraiche
Smoked salmon has to be one of the best ingredients to have in your artillery when you are short on time to cook dinner. This is such a great go-to dish and one of our family’s favourites.
- Bring a large pot of salty water to the boil and cook pasta per packet instructions. Strain, reserving 1 cup of the starchy cooking water.
- In a large, deep pan melt crème fraiche over a medium heat. Add half a cup of the pasta water and add the peas. Warm slightly and add the pasta. Add lemon zest and cook for 3-5 minutes or until peas are heated through and the sauce starts sticking to the pasta. Add more pasta water if the sauce needs loosening.
- Empty onto serving dish and top with salmon. Garnish with a few pieces of dill.
