Salmon and Dill Spaghetti

This is fresh and nutritious one pot pasta meal. A dash of cream brings the sauce together nicely and the whole cherry tomatoes add a delightful burst of flavour when you bite into them.

Salmon and Dill Spaghetti
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 onion, finely diced
1/2 cup white wine
1 carrot, peeled into ribbons
2 cups broccoli florets
200g cherry tomatoes
50mL thickened cream
200g smoked salmon, sliced into large ribbons
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
Cracked pepper and salt to taste
200g spaghetti

  1. Cook spaghetti in boiling water till al dente. Drain and set to the side.
  2. In a large pan, heat oil. Saute onions and garlic. Add tomatoes and cook briefly on high heat.
  3. Pour in wine, allowing to reduce slightly before adding broccoli and carrots. Cook briefly to preserve some texture and crunch to vegetables
  4. Season to taste, remembering that when you add the smoked salmon it will make the dish saltier.
  5. Remove from heat, stir through cream, cooked pasta, fresh dill, and salmon.
  6. Serve immediately.
