  • 180g Burren Smoked Irish Organic Salmon (cold smoked)
  • 1 medium sized leek
  • 2 tablespoons of crème fraiche

Before you start, throw on Tagliatelle or another pasta of your own choice. This won’t take long, so once the pasta is on get started on the sauce.

Slice the leek and sauté until the leek is soft and almost transparent.

Chop the smoked salmon in strips and just barely heat with the leek.

Add in the crème fraiche.

Season to your own taste, and throw some fresh dill on top if you like.

Serve with the cooked pasta.
