I saw something similar to this smoked salmon pasta on TV earlier in the year, so when I saw a half-side of salmon in the yellow sticker section for £3.78, I thought I would try my take on it.
It is another really easy recipe and is perfect for a mid-week meal as it takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish.
Firstly, I starting cooking the pasta as per the packet instructions.
I then pan-fried the salmon in a preheated frying pan, skin side down for about 3 minutes before turning them over and cooking through for a further 2 minutes. Once cooked, I carefully removed the crispy skin and crumbled it into small pieces.
Using a vegetable peeler I sliced the top part of the asparagus into ribbons and thinly sliced the stalks.
I roughly crumbled the salmon into the frying pan and chucked in asparagus stalks and cooked through for a couple of minutes and then chucked in the lemon juice and zest.
Once cooked and using tongs, I chucked the spaghetti into the pan with the salmon with about half a cup of the cooking water and the creme fraiche. I then added the asparagus ribbons and tossed it all together with a bit of salt and pepper. Before serving with the lemon wedges and a sprinkling of the crumbed crispy skin.
