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
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
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.
Place the salmon parcels in the oven for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.
Chop the onion and crush the garlic. Fry in oil until brown.
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).
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.
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.
Drain the pasta, place in a bowl and spoon over the creamy salmon topping (ensuring the mixture is piping hot).
Sprinkle parmesan and grind a little more black pepper on top before serving.
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.
