Great recipe, Madzmom! DH made this for me--I picked it out, of course, but he made it for me....a true miracle! Anyway, he said that it was a very easy recipe to follow and I can vouch that it was wonderful to eat. He did forget to add the grated parmesan, but it was still amazing. We used spinach fettuccine noodles, which set off the pink salmon nicely. Thanks so much for posting!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onion and saute until translucent, but not browned.
  3. Add the smoked salmon and continue cooking just until salmon turns opaque, 1-2 minutes.
  4. Pour in the cream and add capers.
  5. Be careful how much salt you add because the snoked salmon and capers are both salty.
  6. Add pasta and toss to coat.
  7. *Ifthere doesn't appear to be enough sauce, add a couple of tablespoons of the pasta cooking water to thin it down.
  8. Serve with freshly grated parmesan.
