Smoked Salmon Recipe - Smoked Salmon Pasta Verde


Using smoked salmon recipes for a main course makes a statement with the distinctive taste that sets it apart from the ordinary. North Atlantic salmon is available as well as wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon. Both can be prepared hot or cold smoked with unique spice blends for their characteristic flavor. The following main dish pasta recipe uses the smoked salmon combined with crème fraiche and herbs to complement the flavor.


  • 1 ½ cups dry white wine
  • ¾ cup crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 12 ounces dried fettuccine
  • 8 ounces small sugar snap peas (about 2 cups), strings removed, or thawed frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green onions (about 5)
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, cut crosswise into ¼-inch strips


Boil wine in medium saucepan until reduced to ¾ cup, about 8 minutes. Remove wine from heat and whisk in crème fraîche.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until almost tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally. Add sugar snap peas or edamame to same pot and cook until peas are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain pasta and peas, and then return to pot.

Pour crème fraîche mixture over pasta and peas. Add green onions, parsley, and thyme; toss to coat. Add salmon; toss again. Season pasta with salt and pepper. Divide pasta among plates and serve.
