Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the pasta.
  2. Drain but do not rinse. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a large frying pan.
  3. Add the shallots and saute=E9 for about 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cut the salmon into thin bite-size pieces (I use thick bite sized pieces) and slice the green onions; set aside. Then, whisk the sour cream, Dijon and pepper into the sauted shallots.
  5. Remove from the heat and immediately stir into the drained cooked pasta.
  6. Add the salmon and green onions and toss.
  7. Serve hot or as a cold pasta salad.
  8. The flavour becomes fuller with a day's refrigeration.
  9. If it's not creamy enough after being chilled, simply stir in more sour cream.

I didn't love, it was alright but not the taste sensation I was expecting. Felt it was missing something, not sure entirely what.

This was a HUGE hit in my home! My 6 year old and my super picky 4 year old adore this recipe. Unfortunatly I drop the green onions, so we didn't have those in the dish, and I used shallots and garlic.We also used baked salmon instead of smoked, but it was still great. I will be using this frequently since we live in the pacific north west and salmon is everywhere!
