Quick and easy but somewhat bland. I think the idea of adding mustard is probably a good one. Will try again with that addition.

We found this too loose for our taste. Low effort but not our favourite result.

Love this recipe. It’s now one of my week day staples! I add a bit of Dijon mustard, sweetcorn and grated carrots too. I add the crepe fraiche at the end along with some cream cheese! Yum!!

Really delicious fast and easy meal. I used a whole stock cube, a big teaspoon of mustard and added some of the pasta water to loosen up the sauce. I also used trout and haddock instead of salmon (as I didn’t have any salmon) but still came really good.

Simple and quick to make. Great for mid week and my super-fussy 6 year old loved it. So, a major win all round! I also added a heaped teaspoon of Dijon as suggested.

Sauce split and looked all curdled... I should have followed my instinct and added the creme fraiche right at the end.

Great recipe for the family. Have also made it scaling down amounts and using left-over cooked peas, green beans and salmon; added these after the crème fraîche and worked a treat.

Yummy! Not rating as I changed quite a bit; gluten free pasta; lightly smoked salmon fillets as that is what I had; spring onions instead of shallots; dairy free soft cheese instead of creme fraiche (dairy intolerances in our house); and the addition of a bit of tinned sweetcorn and then lemon juice at the end. But otherwise followed the recipe!! A lovely dinner that didn't taste 'free from'...the smokiness of the salmon helped boost the flavour.

Thanks for your question. It is safe to reheat the dish but the texture will be compromised.

Can you replace the peas with broccoli and if so would you add them to the recipe in the same way?

Thanks for your question. You can use broccoli instead of peas but it will take a bit longer to cook. We'd suggest cutting it into small florets and boiling it for 4 - 5 mins then stirring it through at the end. If you like you can add it the pasta water, timing the pasta and broccoli to be ready at the same time - it's slightly less accurate but saves on washing up!

Thanks for your question. You do not need to pre-cook any ingredients, just add them raw in the order detailed above.

When do you add the salmon? Couldn't see that step in the recipe...

Thanks for your question. You add it in step 2, along with the frozen peas, crème fraîche and water. Enjoy!
