Creamy Salmon Pasta

Creamy Salmon Pasta

Creamy Salmon Pasta

This easy recipe gives you a delicious creamy salmon pasta, which is great for anyone who loves fish, and especially the gorgeous opulent taste of fresh salmon.

Some people like to make pasta with smoked salmon, but I like to use a single fresh salmon fillet, which, with some wonderful fresh egg pasta, is sufficient to feed two people.

Adding the red chili just gives a bit of a bite to the dish, and goes so well with the taste of the salmon and the hint of lemon. I did not add any freshly grated parmesan to this sauce, but you could do it if you wanted to make it even more creamy.

How to cook the salmon fillet

In this recipe, I cook the salmon fillet in the oven, because I did not want the pieces to be too crispy. In some of my other salmon recipes, like my creamy mustard sauce for salmon recipe, for example, I deliberately fried the salmon, as I wanted a crispy outside layer.

But in this recipe I wanted the salmon to be soft and flakey, so I baked it in the oven. It does take a little longer to cook, but does not need watching, so you can get on with the other activities like boiling the pasta and making the sauce.

When the salmon was cooked it flaked beautifully using two forks to pull it apart.

You could, of course, also use left-over salmon to make this dish, if you have some leftovers from a party or buffet.

Which pasta to use with salmon

I used some fresh egg spaghetti pasta in this dish. It was quick to cook (4-5 minutes), and tastes wonderful.

But you could use any pasta you like. Salmon Fettuccine, salmon linguine, creamy salmon penne…..all of these would be good.

The process would be exactly the same, just time the cooking of the pasta so that the timing coincides with the cooking of the salmon and finishing of the sauce. 

I am sure that as long as you like salmon, you will enjoy this dish.

Just make sure you use sustainable salmon.

Our salmon came from Aldi, and was responsibly sourced from Norwegian fish farms.

Creamy Salmon Pasta

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

This creamy salmon pasta, made with freshly baked and flaked salmon fillets is a delicious and easy meal to make. Super quick as well!


  • 100g Fresh egg pasta (or whatever pasta you prefer)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Zero calorie spray
  • 1 red chilli (medium hot)
  • 120g Fresh Atlantic Salmon Fillet
  • 50ml White Wine
  • 50ml Single Cream
  • 1 tsp coriander puree (or preferably fresh chopped coriander - I did not have available!)


  • Grated parmesan for the sauce or garnish


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C. I use my New Wave oven for this as it does not need pre-heating.
  2. Spray an oven tray with some zero-calorie spray and place the salmon fillet on top. Season the salmon with salt and pepper, and cover with the lemon juice. Place in the oven and cook at 180C for 10 minutes.
  3. When the salmon is cooked, remove from the oven and flake it using two forks.
  4. While the salmon is cooking, boil the pasta in some salted water, according to the manufacturer's instructions. (I use a bit of olive oil in the water to prevent it from sticking).
  5. When the pasta is cooked, drain it over the pan, discarding the drained water. Then return the pasta to the pan.
  6. While the pasta is boiling, saute the garlic in the olive oil in a cast-iron skillet for one minute. Then add the chopped chilli and cook for about 30 seconds. Then add the wine and turn off the heat. Let the wine evaporate with the heat of the skillet. Keep stirring until wine has almost evaporated.
  7. When ready to serve add the cream to the skillet, turn the heat back on and bring to a boil, adding the coriander and stirring all the way. Season with a little salt and pepper if needed. When it begins to boil, remove from the heat.
  8. Then add the sauce and the salmon to the pasta, mixing well, before serving.


Season with freshly ground black pepper before serving.

The quantities shown are enough to feed two people.
