Aromatic smoked salmon is joined by parmesan, spring onion, spinach and a zing of lemon for a rich, smooth and flavourful pasta dish. It’s almost hard to fathom that this level of indulgence can come together so quickly, and so easily in a single pan.
Jamie’s One Pan Wonders premieres on BBC Lifestyle on Monday, 27 February at 7.25pm on StarHub channel 423, Singtel channel 255 and BBC Player.
- 125 g fresh lasagne sheets
- 2 spring onions
- 80 g spinach
- 60 g smoked salmon (2 slices), from sustainable sources
- ½ a lemon
- 5 g Parmesan cheese
- Olive oil
- 1 tbsp cottage cheese
- Extra virgin olive oil
Boil the kettle. Cut the lasagne sheets in half lengthways, then into 2 cm strips, using a crinkle-cut knife, if you’ve got one.
Trim the spring onions and finely chop with the spinach and half the salmon. Finely grate the lemon zest, then the Parmesan, keeping them separate. Put a 28 cm frying pan on a high heat.
Once hot, put a little drizzle of olive oil into the pan with the spring onions, spinach, chopped salmon and lemon zest.
Scatter the pasta into the pan, then carefully pour in
enough boiling kettle water to just cover the pasta – about 250 ml. Let it bubble away for 4 mins, or until the pasta has absorbed most of the water and you’ve got a nice sauce, stirring regularly and loosening with an extra splash of water, if needed.
Turn the heat off, squeeze in the lemon juice, stir in the cottage cheese and Parmesan, then season to perfection. Delicately tear over the remaining salmon, and finish with a kiss of extra virgin olive oil, if you like.
