This is really quick and easy to make. I couldn’t resist messing with the recipe, but I think my additions work 🙂 I took the recipe from Easy Health magazine from Jan/Feb. I’ll definitely give this one a go again.

Serves 4


250g wholewheat spaghetti

1 large onion

1 clove of garlic, minced

120g smoked salmon, cut into fine strips

300g mixed wild rocket and flat-leaved parsley

A little olive oil

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper


40g frozen peas

Handful toasted pine nuts



1. Cook the spaghetti until al dente. While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a pan. Fry off the onion for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and fry for another 2 minutes.

2. Add the peas and heat through.

3. On a separate pan (dry), add the pine nuts and toast them.

4. Drain the spaghetti, combine with the salmon, rocket & parsley, add a dash of olive oil and lemon juice to the onions, garlic and peas and return to the heat for a minute or two stirring

5. Sprinkle with sea salt and lots of black pepper and serve, garnish with parmesan and toasted pine nuts.

I’m not a big fan of fish, but we made this recipe down in Dunbrody Cookery School and I must say I’m nearly converted. As the smoked salmon is cooked the flavour is not as potent. It’s another very quick recipe to make.

Serves 5-6


350g penne pasta

200g of smoked salmon

200ml pouring cream

50g crème fraiche

Juice of 1 lemon

50ml white wine

2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley

50g grated parmesan (plus extra for serving)


  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and cook the penne pasta according to the packet instructions.
  2. Chop the smoked salmon into long strips and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile in another saucepan put the cream, crème friache and lemon juice onto heat and bring them to the boil. Add in the white wine and grated parmesan and heat through.
  4. Allow the sauce to cook for at least 10 minutes during which time it will thicken by process of reduction and also with the addition of the cheese.
  5. Drain the pasta and add it into the hot sauce and then mix in the smoked salmon and the chopped parsley.
  6. Transfer to a large pottery dish and bring to the table to allow people to help themselves.
