Salmon Pasta

This easy pasta dish can be made with the best salmon you can find, off-cuts or even canned salmon too, which makes it very versatile and a meal you can cook during the week or to entertain guests for a more fancy dinner. It's amazing how little time it can take to put together a meal with the potential to impress!

INGREDIENTS - serves 4 to 6 depending on size
250 gr Spaghetti
150 gr Salmon pieces
3 spring onions finely sliced
2 garlic cloves chopped finely
12 cocktail, cherry or mini rosa tomatoes
1 tsp dill tips
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
250 ml fresh cream
1 egg yolk
75ml white wine
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and black pepper to taste
Can be served with chili flakes

Boil the pasta "al dente" in lightly salted water, rinse with cold water and set aside.
In a hot pot, place the olive oil and saute the onion and garlic.

Follow with the butter, salmon, spices, salt and cook until the salmon is half way done. At this point, pour the wine in and let the alcohol steam off for 2 or 3 minutes.

Then, pour the cream and the egg yolk, stirring immediately, two minutes later add the pasta and the tomatoes cut in halfs incorporate well and serve with some parmesan and chili to taste.

Ps. Dill goes off very quickly, so next time you buy one packet hang what you didn't use or place in a paper towel and let it dry, so you can store it for a bit longer. Otherwise, you can buy dried dill tips from Woolies to keep at hand.
