Smoked SALMON PASTA recipe
Pasta with salmon is one of the few fish-based dishes that almost everyone likes, even those who don’t like fish.
I recognize that it is a little 80s recipe but it is a classic that never sets like the shrimp cocktail!
The recipe is also very popular because it is as simple to make as it is tasty
One of those sauces that are prepared while cooking pasta … or rather less.
In this version, directly from my dad’s cookbook, there is wodka but it is possible to do without or replace with whiskey.
The intense flavor of the smoked salmon combined with the unusual flavor of the wodka and the creaminess of the cream make it a very refined and rich first course, ideal to be consumed on holidays.
It is possible to use fresh salmon instead of smoked.
A recipe so simple and fast that it is especially loved by those who are not expert in the kitchen or who have little time.
This dish never fails on my table especially on New Year’s Eve!

It is preferable to consume the smoked salmon pasta at the moment. Freezing is not recommended.
The secret to a creamy and tasty salmon pasta is to drain the pasta very al dente and let it continue cooking in the sauce, adding cooking water, as is done with risotto.RECIPE
Salmon: we prefer to use smoked salmon but you could use fresh and skinless salmon or substitutes it by chicken breast or shrimp.
