Ingredients - Serves 4 Adults

  • 350g / 12½ oz. of dried spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 100ml / 3 ½ fl oz. of crème fraiche, half-fat
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 400g / 14 oz. of salmon fillets

  • 1 lemon, juiced

Method

  1. Half-fill a large saucepan with water and bring to the boil
  2. Cook the pasta until firm, not too soft - the packet should have cooking times
  3. While that’s cooking, cut the salmon into cubes
  4. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, and then add the salmon
  5. Cook the fish for around 5 minutes – it should change colour but not go brown

  7. Add the pepper and lemon juice; check according to taste. When the pasta is cooked, tip out all the water, and then add it to the pan with the sauce
