Salmon is one of the most popular fishes consumed by people today. Go to a restaurant that offers seafood and it is guaranteed that salmon will be on the menu; many steakhouses even offer this specific fish with their meats. Salmon can be cured, baked, broiled, steamed, and in this recipe, smoked. I personally love smoked foods: smoked duck, any smoked fish, smoked mushrooms…they're all so delicious! Today I’ve decided to shine the light on smoked salmon by preparing a smoked salmon pasta with a light cream sauce. Toss the pasta with roasted asparagus and fresh tomatoes for one well balanced meal. Pair it with a crisp white wine for the ultimate home cooked dinner!

  • 8 ounces linguini
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 5 ounces smoked salmon
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan

Fill a large pot with salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes or until al dente. Drain the pasta and rinse in cold water to stop it from cooking. If you are preparing just the noodles ahead of time, drizzle oil on the pasta and mix, to prevent them from sticking to one another.
Use the same pot for the sauce. Heat over medium heat and add the 2 tbsp oil. Add the chopped onion and asparagus and saute until the onion becomes translucent about 2-3 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the salmon and white wine and simmer for 1 minute.
Add the cooked pasta, heavy cream, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the Parmesan cheese and stir. Adjust the seasonings if necessary and serve immediately.
