How to make a great salmon pasta dish

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
I first made this dish for a pescetarian friend of mine when she came over for dinner. It's very quick and fairly simple to make. Most importantly it's downright yummy too!
What you'll need: 
1 large onion
3 cloves of garlic
2tbsp Oil
Lemon
1: 
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
2: 
Slice the lemon and lay on tin foil. Place the salmon fillets on top of the lemon slices, drizzle with olive oil and wrap up well.
3: 
Place the salmon parcels in the oven for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.
4: 
Chop the onion and crush the garlic. Fry in oil until brown.
5: 
Place the pasta into a pan with a little oil and a pinch of salt. Cover in boiling water and cook as per instructions on the pack (usually 10-15 minutes).
6: 
When the salmon is cooked remove from the oven and flake into the pan with the onions and garlic over a low heat. Add a little of the remaining cooking water to the pan too.
7: 
Add the crème fraiche, and the chives (chop up with scissors as you add). Stir in most of the parmesan (leave some for garnish) and grind in some black pepper.
8: 
Drain the pasta, place in a bowl and spoon over the creamy salmon topping (ensuring the mixture is piping hot).
9: 
Sprinkle parmesan and grind a little more black pepper on top before serving.
Tips: 
This is also nice with some green veg added such as mange tout, asparagus tips, or sugar snap peas.
Serve with a nice Italian wine - Pinot Grigio is particularly well matched to this dish.
