Aren’t there days that you just want to whip something up in the kitchen as quickly as possible? We came back way past lunch time and just needed to get some food in our system. So I looked into our fridge and found a packet of smoked salmon. Perfect! (: I got the dish plated in less than 30 minutes! Talk about quick aye?
Cream and Tomato Smoked Salmon Pasta (serves 2)
100g smoked salmon
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1/2 onion, finely chopped
6 sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
2 tbs tomato paste
50ml dry white wine
100ml thickened cream
salt & ground black pepper, to season
chopped parsley & chilli flakes, to garnish
100-125g dried pasta (cooked according to the packet, drained and set aside)
1) Place a heavy-based pan over medium heat and melt the butter. Add the garlic, onion and sundried tomatoes and fry till the onions soften. Careful not to burn the garlic, as it will turn bitter.
2) Add the white wine and cream and allow it to come to a boil. Add the tomato paste and mix till well combined. Pour the pasta into the pan and mix it well, making sure the pasta is coated well with the sauce.
3) Take the pan off the heat, and put in the smoked salmon. Fold the salmon into the pasta and bring it back onto the heat for a further 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
4) Serve and garnish with parsley and chilli flakes. ENJOY! (:
Easy peasy, quick & easy!
