Lemon and Dill Smoked Salmon Pasta _ Donna Hay

We are big fans of smoked salmon so I knew, we would like this, which we did. I made this, the day after Passover ended and I had not shopped yet so I am missing capers and of all things, lemons. That is what happens after the holiday. I made do with lemon juice but I am sure the zest would have turned this into a more flavorful dish.
This is a throw together dish and took little time to make. I don't like mint in this kind of dish so that was eliminated.  

Lemon and Dill Smoked Salmon Pasta


200g spaghetti (gluten-free)

1 tablespoon lemon zest

 2 tablespoons lemon juice
 ⅓ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped dill leaves
2 slices sliced smoked salmon, torn
1 tablespoon salted capers, rinsed and chopped
2 green onions (scallions), trimmed and sliced
sea salt and cracked black pepper


Cook the pasta in a saucepan of salted boiling water for 10–12 minutes or until al dente. Drain and return to the pan.

Combine the lemon zest and juice, oil and dill and add to the pasta with the salmon, capers, mint, onion, salt and pepper. 

Toss to combine and serve with lemon wedges. Serves 2.

Eat and enjoy.
