Smoked Salmon Pasta

Smoked Salmon Pasta

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.

I’m fairly lucky as much as the kids love seafood. They are always asking for it!

Salmon is normally very expensive and way above my £5.00 budget. However, by regularly keeping a close eye on the yellow sticker section when out shopping, I often find a bargain! When you are at the supermarket always remember to take a look in both the fresh food section and vegetable aisle. Mist things you find under a yellow sticker can be frozen for use at a later date.

Smoked Salmon Pasta

  • Firstly, I started cooking the pasta as per the packet instructions.
    Spaghetti
  • 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.
    350 g Asparagus
  • 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.

I then added the asparagus ribbons and tossed them all together with a bit of salt and pepper. Before serving with the lemon wedges and a sprinkling of the crumbed crispy skin.

We love homemade sushi, not only is it delicious, with a bit of practice it is fairly easy to make. It is also a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen with the rolling process. I was pleasantly surprised to find a piece of Scottish Salmon in the yellow sticker section of my local supermarket recently. Before deciding on Sushi I browsed the internet for other Salmon recipes. While browsing I stumbled on
The Fishermens Mission.For those like me who didn't know what they do, please head over and check out their website and support them where you can. The Fishermen’s Mission is the only fishermen’s charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care. We help all fishermen, active or retired, and their families.More than 13,000 people work in fishing: the UK’s toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupation.At sea, they face death and injury with an average of 15 fishermen killed or seriously injured every year.On land, many struggle with insecurity and debt. And for the 50,000 retired fishermen andtheir families, the fishing may have ended but the hardship continues as they face debt,scant savings, loneliness and isolation.Arguably, without
The Fishermens Mission and the amazing work they do, we wouldn't have the vast and delicious range of fish products available to us at the supermarket or fishmongers. So, please head over to their site and support them if you can.
