Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta

Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta

Having tried my new smoker once already, I thought it time to give it another try, this time with salmon. The resulting smoked salmon was perfect for a creamy smoked salmon pasta dish. The fish didn´t need brining as it is such an oily fish anyway, so could be popped straight into the smoker for 25 minutes (or a little less for a lighter smoke flavour).

Raw salmon


  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • pack of fine green asparagus
  • 425 g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 50 g Parmesan
  • small bunch of fresh parsley
  • 100 ml cooking cream
  • 3-4 handfuls of pasta


Smoke the salmon for 20 – 25 minutes, then flake the flesh and cover to keep warm.

Flaked smoked salmon

Fry the onions gently for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, fry the asparagus in another pan in a single layer until they have wilted and are a little charred.

Add the garlic to the onions and continue to fry for a further 10 minutes.

Add the chopped tomatoes to the onion mix, add a healthy sprinkle of Italian herbs, stir and cook for a further 10 minutes.

Boil a pan of water with a little oil and salt and add the pasta. Boil to your taste (soft or al dente).

Grate or slice the Parmesan

Add the parsley to the mix and stir.

If necessary, warm the salmon a little on top of the boiling pasta.

Serve with a little Parmesan.
