Method

  1. First prepare the salmon. Flake the salmon into mouthful-sized chunks in a bowl. Bring a large pan of generously salted water to the boil.
  2. Cook the pasta. Feed the spaghetti into the pan, give it a stir, then cook at a rolling boil, stirring occasionally to keep the strands separate, until the pasta is just tender but with a bite. Check the cooking time on the pack, as it does vary. When the pasta is almost done, throw in the peas.
  3. Finish the dish: remove any tough stalks from the dill, then chop the fronds fairly roughly. Reserve about 4 tablespoons of the pasta water, then drain the pasta and peas and return them to the pan with the reserved water. Set over a very low heat, then toss in the salmon, dill, crème fraîche, salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Toss everything together lightly and heat through briefly, then serve.

So simple and delicious, perfectly balanced, delicate flavours. You cannot omit anything as so few ingredients. Season with salt and black pepper. You could make substitions or additions to tailor to your own taste, for example parsley, fennel, lemon zest / juice, capers, white wine (vinegar).

Really nice, simple dinner. I made enough for lunch the next day and it was just as good then.

I saw Lynsey's comment about using hot smoked mackerel and decided to try it. I found it very quick, simple and perfect for after work. Oh and it was very tasty too! The petit pois add a fresh sweet element, the dill livened up the flavours, and hot smoked mackerel is always delicious. I'll try it with the hot smoked salmon next time just to compare the difference.

I did like this recipe, however there was a little too much pasta and I found I had to add a tad more crème fraiche as it was a little too dry. But I will make it again.
