This was so good. I did use only a little bit of lemon juice-maybe half a tsp. as don’t want it too lemony but did use the lemon zest in the recipe. Otherwise I didn’t change a thing. Wow. I wouldn’t add any extra Parmesan cheese or anything else. Was just in WI & bought smoked whitefish so I used that. Amazing. Thank you for posting this. Will make again.
Wonderful!Had some local BC smoked salmon to use up & found this recipe. Did as directed ,using a Tbl of cream cheese for creaminess, and the end of a pack of linguine.Very light and lemony. Thx Elise.
Great! You’re welcome, Cath, I’m so glad you liked the pasta!
The recipe is amazing! Since the lemon adds freshness and aroma, instead of white wine I added muscat rose wine and it was great! I used cream and on top of the pasta in the serving plates I added bit of parmesan cheese. Parsley is a must, I wouldn’t leave it out since it enriches the dish. I must admit that this is my favorite smoked salmon recipe so far! (So good that I decided to write a review and I never do that) Enjoy.. ❤️
Fantastic, Lena, I’m so happy you liked it!
This was amazing! Held off on the nuts, used parsley from the herb garden and added some giant pacific shrimp on the edge of the bowls. New summertime fave!
Is a very good recipe. However, I did added the capers to the sauce after the wine and the lemon, not towards the end. Also I added a little bit more cream.Although I LOVE parsley, especially with Red Pasta, I totally recommend the dill for this particular white one! And definitely the Pine Nuts.As in terms of Pasta, in my opinion the best to use is fresh Tagliatelle… or Linguine.And don’t ruin it with Parmesan or any other cheese.
This sounds fabulous! I’m considering using some goat cheese instead of cream or cream cheese. You have a great sense of what goes together. What do you think? Thanks!
Goat cheese sounds like it’ll make a great smoke salmon pasta. Go for it, and let us know how it turns out!
This was delicious! Home smoked salmon in a light garlic wine sauce with toasted pine nuts and penne. We served with ratatouille which was a perfect complement.
Some days I feel like I can’t please half the table. Tonight, I feel warm and fuzzy like I never want the feeling to dissipate.I scored a Regal wood smoked salmon on special. I followed your recipe. My hubby said where’s the sauce.. I said trust me. I added some frozen prawn meat.All the family loved it! Six happy hungry people. All had seconds and thirds. Quite the lockdown feast.Thank you for the recipe. I’m looking forward to doing it again
Sarah, reading your comment makes us smile. Thank you for sharing, and so glad to hear this was a success with all 6 of you.
Beautiful !!! Would definitely make this again.
I made this recipe. Sort of. Instead of reserving pasta water for the sauce I used 2% milk and omitted the heavy cream. I didn’t have a shallot so I used diced onion. I added kalamata olives and diced tomato + capers. I topped it with fresh chopped dill and parsley. It was nothing like I expected. Would I make it again? I don’t know.
Beautiful and simple to make. I put cream cheese through it. Also I wilted a bit of spinach and added it to the pasta with a few roasted cherry vine tomatoes! Will definitely do it again!
Love the ideas of added spinach, cream cheese, and roasted cherry tomatoes Vanessa!
I made this recipe, but with a few alterations due to ingredients disappearing from the fridge! Wine had vanished, so used dry sherry and lemon juice. Did not have enough salmon, so added some frozen prawns, and left out the pine nuts. Used cream substitute (Elmlea). The finished result was gorgeous, my husband loved it! This is a wonderful, quick, easy and versatile dish.
Made this recipe two times. It is delicious, yes, delicious! I did add the cream. The only down side, grating and squeezing lemon, chopping shallot, garlic, and parsley takes time but is worth it!
Delicious and easy to make. Made it with smoked trout and Spanish onion. Will def be making again :)
I have made this wonderful dish almost every other week for quite a while. It is fantastic as written. Are there any more like this??
Hi, Nancy! We have quite a few salmon dishes on the website. Just use the search bar for Salmon and they will come up. Here is a favorite of mine: Honey Mustard Baked Salmon.
We’re 2 school kids of 13 and think your recipe would be good for our assessment. Do you have any advice for sizes for one person?
Hi Elise,I have made this so many times and don’t remember if I’ve ever reviewed it, but last week my husband said “this is good enough for guests” so that’s what I’m doing tonight for my birthday group. I always use the honey smoked salmon that Costco carries…in a vacuum sealed bag…it’s so delicious. I also add a few capers, fresh dill, a dollop of pesto at the end. This is one of the best recipes EVER and it goes together so quickly. Thanks so much!
I can’t have pasta, but I do enjoy a slice of smoked salmon on toast topped with an egg.
Mixed with filling for deviled eggs, on Eggs Benedict and a lot of other things.
Fairly inexpensive is Costco. They have smoked salmon in a box of vacuum sealed packages of 3 to four slices of smoked salmon. Really nice. I believe each box has 8(?) packages.
Charlie, You might try spaghetti squash as a substitute. I have made this dish for years, really worth trying.
I loved it and I’m not even sure I made it exactly right as I had been drinking the rose wine(yes, rose cause that’s what I had) I intended to use- and actually had enough left! Anyhou at first taste I thought “way too lemony?’ but then after adding the cream, smoked salmon, a little parmesan, dill and black pepper it was just right! I love that the recipe gives options like using onion if shallots aren’t available. Linguine was the pasta used. This dish was quick easy and I even mixed in some fresh arugula at the very end.
Thank you for this recipe! I added a few pinches of red pepper flakes with the shallots and few tablespoons of good quality parmesan at the end. This recipe is now bookmarked & will be in my regular rotation!
