This is an incredibly tasty, quick and cheap meal. Black Mountains Smokery are one of my clients. They are a small client and I have been a big fan of their products well before they asked us to take them on as a client. I regularly order their products for dinner parties, my favourite is the smoked duck and I usually add a couple of packs of the trimmings for quick dinners. These are delivered overnight.
Smoked Salmon pasta
Spaghetti/ tagliatelle or pasta
10-12 cherry tomatoes halved
half a packed of spinach
8 mushrooms/ or 8-10 stalks of asparagus
3 garlic cloves
1 small tub of crème fraiche
½ a packet of BMS smoked salmon trimmings
Chop the onion and garlic, halve the tomatoes, chop mushrooms or asparagus and ensure the spinach is washed thoroughly. Slice salmon into small slices or squares, whatever you prefer. Put pasta water on to boil.
Start frying the onions in olive oil for five minutes then put the pasta on.
Add garlic, followed by mushrooms/ asparagus, cook for a couple of minutes
Finally add tomatoes, spinach and crème fraiche. At this point the pasta should be ready, drain and add to the sauce. Finally turn off the gas/ heat and add salmon.
Serve with lots of fresh pepper.
