Spaghetti with smoked salmon and green asparagus

  • Servings: 2 or 3

Who doesn’t love pasta! Most people do and I am a big fan of all kinds of pasta.

The following recipe was inspired by the fact that I had 1 pack of smoked salmon and another of green asparagus in my fridge and both were nearing the expiry date. I don’t like to waste any food!

…And it was really tasty!


  • 200g of spaghetti, or any other pasta of your choice
  • 200g of smoked salmon, sliced into smaller pieces
  • 250g of fresh green asparagus, washed and chopped into small pieces
  • 300ml of liquid cream
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 handful of chopped spring onions
  • 1/2 tsp of coarse black pepper (freshly milled)
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 handful of finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp of chopped capers (optional)
  • Salt, to taste


Step 1

Put a skillet over a medium heat then add the olive oil followed by : spring onions, garlic, asparagus, capers and pepper. Stir fry until the asparagus is cooked then pour the cream and add the salmon. Cook further for 5 minutes then remove from the heat. Taste before adding the salt as smoked salmon is usually quite salty.

Step 2

In the meantime, cook the pasta al dente in plenty of salted water. As soon as it is drained, mix the spaghetti with the creamy sauce and the parsley.

Step 3

Serve with some greens on the side, or a salad.
