There is a general rule that you should never add Parmesan to a fish-based pasta dish, but this is the exception. Serves four to six.


  • 350g/12oz tagliatelle
  • 225g/8oz sliced smoked salmon
  • 4 tbsps torn fresh basil plus garnish
  • 300ml/½ pint double cream
  • 6 tbsps freshly-grated Parmesan
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper


  • STEP 1
    Cook the tagliatelle in a large pan of boiling salted water -- the bigger the pan, the less chance of sticking -- giving it a stir occasionally. This can take between eight to 13 minutes from boiling -- check the packet instructions.
  • STEP 2
    Cut the smoked salmon into long strips and mix with the basil. Pour the cream into a pan and bring to the boil, then boil for one minute until it begins to thicken. Stir in four tablespoons of the Parmesan and season with pepper.
  • STEP 3
    Drain the pasta and toss with the Parmesan cream, then fold in the smoked salmon and basil mixture until nicely combined. Divide among warmed, wide-rimmed bowls and garnish with extra basil to serve.
