Method

  1. Heat oil in a non-stick pan and cook the salmon, skin-side down, for 5 mins. Turn over and continue to cook for 4 mins more until the salmon is cooked through. Remove from pan, leave to cool, then flake the fish into large chunks, discarding skin.
  2. Cook tagliatelle according to pack instructions. Scoop out half a cup of cooking water, then drain and return to the pan. Toss in the salmon and remaining ingredients, loosening with cooking water, if the mixture is too thick. Serve immediately.

I too found this incredibly bland, even with the addition of garlic, chilli and lemon juice :(

I love this recipe. I used smoked salmon fillets and it was really quick and easy.

Easy to make and excellent meal. Yet another good way to use salmon.

Added the chilli and garlic as suggested and worked a treat !! Seared the salmon fillets on a skillet so the flavour worked well with the rocket - added at the end. Another family favourite !!

For pud I made the Strawberry and Cinamon Torte - also from the GF site - 10/10 great flavour combo......

After making this once I then switched to using smoked salmon which I think tastes much better and makes this recipe even easier!

Found it too bland, but ok if you're short of time

I just added in some Smoked Cod instead of salmon. But smoked salmon aswell would make a nice suggestion. Then i added a bit of feta and some oven cooked tomatoes with thyme. YUM!!!

great recipe, it works, it is easy... I used normal salmon and will do it again. It is important to to stir in rocket at the end, so it doesn't wilt.

Not bad, good subtle flavours but needed a bit more of a punch, maybe some cherry tomatoes and a bit of garlic sauteed in the creme fraiche. but filling and satisfying!

Thought this was awful bland, my husband and I have decided we'll try it another time using smoked salmon.

Really quick and easy, quite nice too. A perfect midweek meal. I added some chilli flakes as I like a bit of spice. Will make again.

Made a variation of the recipe using smoked salmon and a squeeze of lemon juice and had it as a salad. It was delicious, even if it came about because I read the recipe incorrectly before I dashed off to the shops, otherwise I would have bought normal salmon and a lemon. The best thing of all is that there is some left over for lunch tomorrow.

This was a very easy but effective receipe. I used chopped baby spinach instead of rocket but still made a really nice easy tasty dish.
