Smoked salmon pasta sounds very nice and extravagant, but it’s the easiest and fastest type of pasta we’ve ever created. This dish is a cinch to make, but it tastes like you spent a lot more time in the kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 4oz smoked salmon, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 8oz spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped shallots
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Method

  • Heat a large pot of water over high heat for the pasta. Cook the pasta according to its package directions.

  • Place pine nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat and cook until they are fragrant and smell nutty. Set aside.

  • Preheat a large heavy skillet over high heat. Add olive oil to the pan and heat until the oil begins to shimmer.

  • Add shallots and garlic. Add salmon and cook for one minute to begin to caramelize the salmon. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.

  • Turn heat to low and add wine and cream. Cook until slightly reduced. Add lemon juice.

  • You may add the reserved pasta water if the sauce becomes too thick. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Toss the sauce and pasta together.

  • Turn off the heat and add dried pine nuts, lemon juice, and fresh parsley to the mixture.

  • Serving Suggestions: Serve immediately as a main dish with a tasty warm salad. Garnish with more dill to serve.
