Equipment

  • frying pan
  • mixing spoon
  • kitchen scissors
  • small sharp knife

Ingredients
  

  • 400 g spaghetti
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed or finely chopped
  • 120 g smoked salmon trimmings, snipped into tiny pieces with your kitchen scissors
  • 40 g flour self-raising
  • 70 ml single cream
  • 50 ml oil
  • 250 ml water
  • 160 g onion very finely chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Cook spaghetti as per packet instructions, drain and cover.
  • In a large frying pan or wok (which will take all your cooked pasta plus a sauce) warm the oil and saute the onion, until it is just softened, not browned.
  • Add the flour, stirring to make a thick paste.
  • Whilst constantly stirring, gradually add cream, and water until you have a thick creamy sauce.
  • Add garlic and seasoning and finally the salmon.
  • Cook gently for one minute, to flavour the sauce but not overcook the fish.
  • Tip all of the cooked pasta into your frying pan, stirring with a wooden spoon to coat each piece of spaghetti with sauce.
  • Finally tip the dressed pasta into a large serving bowl and garnish with salt (not too much is needed as the salmon is salted) and ground black pepper.
  • Serve with homemade bread to mop up the sauce.
