What is it about Sunday night suppers? For me they need to be an easy, tasty, lazy meal. I have the rest of the week ahead with work, cooking and chores, why would I want to slave away cooking supper at the end of the weekend! Tonight was a combination of two of my favourite foods – smoked salmon and pasta. Before you roll your eyes and complain about cost, you only need a small amount of the smoked salmon – a packet of the trimmings will do very nicely, and really, you won’t break the bank.
For the pasta you can use linguine or spaghetti, along with fresh dill, capers, crème fraîche and smoked salmon you are almost there!
Simply boil the pasta the way you like it. Reserve a couple of spoons of the cooking liquid and drain, returning to the pot. Add a glug of olive oil, a couple of tablespoons of crème fraîche, chopped dill, chopped capers and the salmon and mix well together. Serve with a good dusting of freshly ground black pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Simple, easy, lazy and tasty!
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, I hope you have a peaceful day 🙂
