Lemony Linguine

I like this zesty and refreshing pasta especially we are now approaching summer.

Ingredients (Serve 3)

  • 240 g linguine
  • 1 lemon, squeezed for juice (Grate off the 1/2 lemon for its zests or cut it in visible thicker strips )
  • 100 g of smoked salmon (sliced in strips)
  • 50 g of grated Parmesan
  • 1 tub of creme fraiche (~200ml)
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped

Let’s cook now..

  1. Prepare linguine as on the packaging until al dente.
  2. Don’t quench it when it’s done (keep the heat).
  3. Heat up a skillet with a good splash of olive oil. Add in chopped shallot and garlic to soften briefly.
  4. Toss in linguine to mix even with the shallots & garlic.
  5. Lower the heat now, add in lemon juice, then, pour in creme fraiche and toss in fine lemon zest to stir in evenly.
  6. Add salt and black peper to taste at this stage. Leave some room for smoke salmon saltiness.
  7. Now, off the heat, toss in smoked salmon bits to coat evenly.
  8. Serve it with grated/shaved Parmesan on top to finish off, enjoy!!
