Serves 4


  • 375g tagliatelle
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Spanish onion, finely diced

Cook pasta according to packet instructions.

Heat oil in a frypan over very gentle heat. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes until soft. Pour in wine and allow to bubble up, then simmer for 1 minute.

Add cream, stir and simmer for 5 minutes until thickened. Stir through lemon rind.

Set aside 4 slices of salmon and chop the rest. Drain pasta and add it to the cream mixture with the chopped salmon and chives (reserve some chives for garnishing).
