When work is busy I usually cook pasta for dinner. It’s quick and easy yet satisfying. This version with creamy spaghetti, courgette and cold-smoked salmon feels fresh after a long day at the office. If you cook two portions it allows for a packed lunch for the following day too. Bonus.
Spaghetti with courgette and smoked salmon, serves 2
2 portions spaghetti (I prefer de Cecco)
120 g cold-smoked salmon
1/2 courgette, thinly sliced
50 ml white wine
a dash of concentrated fish stock
50 ml cream
chopped chives to serve
Cook the spaghetti al dente. Slice the salmon. Pour the wine into a small saucepan and let the alcohol evaporate and the liquid to reduce a little. Add cream and stock, let reduce a bit further and season. Add the courgette slices and let them soften in the liquid. Drain the pasta and mix with the sauce and salmon. Serve with chives.
