    1. Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil, and cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions. Drain, add the knob of butter, and keep warm.
    2. In a small frying pan on a low heat, cook and stir the leek until golden and soft, about 7 minutes. Stir in the salmon pieces, season with salt and pepper, add the dill and cook until the salmon is golden, about 10 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, prepare the béchamel sauce: Melt the 30g butter in a saucepan. Whisk in the flour until smooth. Reduce the heat to low, and pour the milk in little by little, whisking constantly to make a smooth, thick sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
    4. Stir the béchamel sauce together with the salmon and leek mixture, then pour over the spaghetti and serve hot.
