Japanese-Style Salmon With Noodle Stir-Fry

You need to marinate the salmon for at least an hour, meaning it’s a great meal to prepare ahead of time if you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen for ages. Super easy, super tasty and also works great with trout fillets too if you fancy moving away from your salmon addiction. We don’t…

Salmon, Courgetti & Dill

You will need – Red Onion, Dill, Smoked, fillet, tinned salmon ( anything really), Crème Friache, garlic, salt and pepper, taglitelle or courgetti, parmesan.

Fry off: Red onion, garlic and salmon, you want the salmon to be flaked in pieces unless it is the smoked and it can be added later.

Pour in Crème Friache and a generous amount of dill, warm through.

Pour mix over your choice of pasta and serve with plenty of salt, pepper and parmesan.

I love Dill so I add more. 


Courgetti is salmon's best friend. Courgetti is salmon’s best friend.

Sesame Seed & Spring Onion Salmon

Smoked Salmon Creamy Pasta

Boil some wholewheat penne. 

When it has five mins to go, gently fry off some sliced spring onions (and finely sliced courgette if you have it) til soft.

Drain the pasta, reserving a cup of the cooking water.

Add the penne and 2tbsp pp crème fraiche to the veg pan. Season generously with white pepper. 

Stir to coat, then drop is some smoked salmon pieces.

Stir well and taste. If it looks thick, add a little of the reserved cooking water.

Demolish. I add parmesan on top even though italians wouldn’t approve.

It’s also nice if you boil some peas with the penne. Greens, innit?
