one-pot-pasta w/ salmon & peas
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Servings: 2
  • 125 g short maccheroni (aka maccaronelli)
  • 4 spring onions
  • 200 g salmon (w/o skin)
  • 150 g peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 400 ml fish stock
  • 100 ml cream
  • ½ tsp dried dill
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
how to:
  • Trim & chop the spring onions & start frying in olive oil for about 4-5 min until starting getting soft.
  • Add the (frozen) peas & fry for another 3-4 min. (If using fresh peas think of planning additional time for removing the peapods.)
  • Remove the skin of the salmon (if necessary) w/ an extra sharp knife; dice the salmon & add to the spring onion-pea-mess. Add salt & pepper to taste. Fry for another 3-4 min.
  • Add maccheroni to the mess.
  • Add fish stock & cream & dried dill to the mess & bring it to a boil.
  • Fry/cook/simmer for about 8-9 min - until almost all the liquid is absorbed by the maccheroni. (According to my pasta package short maccheroni need about 8-9 min ... if using any other pasta check the recommendation on its package.)
  • Add pepper to taste.
  • Optional: Serve w/ grated pecorino or parmesan.
Servings: It's meant as a lunch for 2 persons, but it may be enough for 3 people.
Parmesan or Pecorino: It's optional - best you place some chunk of cheese & a cheese grater at disposal. (There are people who don't like the combination of fish & cheese.)
