Method

  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to pack instructions. Meanwhile, bring the wine to the boil in a large frying pan, then simmer for 1 min. Reduce the heat, stir in the cream and season well.
  2. When the pasta is cooked, drain briefly and tip into the frying pan with the sauce. Add the Parmesan and flaked salmon pieces, and mix gently together. Pile into bowls, sprinkle with pine nuts and serve with the watercress salad (recipe below) alongside.

Like many others I substituted the cream with creme fraiche but mostly stuck to recommended measurements...turned out beautifully.

Very nice dish, I used crème fraiche as a healthy option and also added a chopped chilli, sweetcorn and peas. I didn't stick to the measurement though as I like a little more sauce. Will try adding a little of the pasta water next time to loosen it up. On the whole its a nice, easy and quick dish that was enjoyed by all.

Very tasty and easy recipe. I used apple juice as a cheaper wine substitute, and creme fraiche as a cheaper healthier option. I also added some spinach as I thought this would go well. I was a bit unsure about the apple juice, but it went very well! It was also a success with my boyfriend. I will be making this again :)

This was absolutely beautiful. I made for 4 people, kept to the sauce measurements and used less salmon and added some raw king prawns once the creme fraiche (instead of cream) mixed into the wine. Once the prawns were pink I added the pasta - fusilli - with the salmon as per the recipe. The watercress & cucumber salad with the citrus poppy seed dressing went perfectly and we think this is a very good recipe for entertaining. 10/10.

Not discusting but not nice either, use a quality wine as i used a tesco branded wine, i think this may have had something to do with the rancid after taste

Lovely quick dish. I added fresh baby spinach to add some greens to the meal.

This tasted good but I agree with those who said it was a bit gloupy.

I would make it again but I don't think I would serve it to guests.

Really liked this dish, although I did add a little passata to the sauce.It was yummy and i would make again....but probably not often due to cal content...maybe try it with creme fraiche the next time!

Used smoked salmon scraps and because of other comments that it was bland I added crushed chilli flakes, spring onions and loads of black pepper. Went down a storm and the guests "demanded" I do this dish again before they had even cleared their plates.

This recipe is delicious. I felt a bit adventurous though so I left the recipe and fried chorizo in the wine, added mushrooms and prawns, blanched some curly kale and bought a bottle of Fleurie to match the salmon - SO GOOD!!!

This is a rather heavy dish, which required a lot of seasoning to make it less bland. I loved the double cream&white wine sauce, almost didn't want to add salmon to it!

Comfort food at its best! Very simple but super tasty. Good suggestions about the creme fraiche alternative. Although would have it with dressing next time if having it with double cream. Delicious!

Scary number of cals but was delicious with some garlic bread as a starter. Will try with the lower fat alternatives next time

Yum yum yum! Works quite well with Marscapone too if you're not too much of a creme fraîche fan like me, and don't want to go with the double cream. Added a bit of dill too for some extra flavour and served with a plain old salad from a bag with chunks of cucumber as the kids aren't great with watercress, and topped it with balsamic sauce.

This is just divine!!! Fab treat feel good meal after a late night at work- easy to whip up & most enjoyable. Served with a simpe green salad with olive oil & balsamic dressing. This has none of the heaviness sometimes associated with pasta. Added to the repeat cooking list. A winner. Smart enough to serve to riends as well
