Fettuccine with lemon, parmesan and smoked salmon

Fettuccine with lemon, parmesan and smoked salmon

Introduction

When cooking with pasta, I have always believed in the old saying that 'less is more'.

What I mean by this is that you don't need to add dozens of ingredients to a dish for it to be really tasty.

Sometimes, too many ingredients can be a little overpowering with all the flavours fighting to stand out. Pasta can be enjoyed with the addition of nothing more than some salt and pepper and a good splash of quality olive oil.

Here is a perfect example where I have chosen a few good quality ingredients that will compliment each other without overcomplicating the dish.

For those of you who are quite adventurous, have a go at making your own pasta. It is not as tricky or complicated as you may think!

Directions

To begin, fill a large pot with water and bring to the boil on a fast heat before adding a little seasoning. I would advise you to use a larger pot than you may think so the pasta has enough room to cook without it sticking together.

A little splash of olive oil in the water can help. Drop pasta into the boiling water and cook for recommended time on the packet. Give the pasta a gentle stir from time to time to avoid sticking. Once you are happy that the pasta is cooked properly, lift it from the pan using tongs and refresh it under cold running water to remove starch.

When you are ready to serve, drop the pasta back into the boiling water for a few seconds to reheat it before draining thoroughly. Add the pasta to a separate pan and place on a very gentle heat.

Grate some fresh Parmesan and add to the pasta along with another splash of olive oil and tarragon. Be careful not to add too much as it can be overpowering.

Grate the zest from the lemons and add to the pasta along with the squeezed juice. Give the pasta a stir and check for seasoning.

Slice smoked salmon into strips and add to the pan with a handful of fresh rocket. Toss all the ingredients together. Finish with Parmesan, olive oil and more cracked black pepper.
