About this recipe: This pasta dish works as much for a casual midweek supper as it does for a posh dinner party. Fettuccine combines with salmon, leeks, lemon and cream for a decadently delicious dish.

Serves: 4 

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 280g salmon, cut into thin strips
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 180ml single cream
  • 175ml soured cream
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 225g fettuccine pasta
  • 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the salmon, leek, onion and garlic, and fry until fragrant, about 2 minutes. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream, soured cream and cornflour; stir into the frying pan. Stir in the lemon zest, pepper and paprika. Cook, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes, until sauce is thickened and salmon flakes easily with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add fettuccine and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and toss with the salmon sauce. Top with grated Parmesan cheese to serve.

great recipe! I used some additional milk and reduced the quantities of cream to make it a bit more healthy. Also added some frozen peas right at the end for some texture and colour - 20 Mar 2012


We love this and make it often. We also make our own pasta, well worth the bit of effort. - 07 Mar 2013
