“Love the classic combo of salmon, lemon and peppery arugula. Take to work or a picnic. You could use flakes of hot-smoked salmon or trout instead or add a sprinkling of dill.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the pasta adding the snow peas to the water two mins before end of cooking time. Cool under running water then drain.
  2. Steam salmon for 7 minutes or microwave on high for 2-3 minutes until the flesh flakes easily.
  3. Peel away any skin, break into large flakes and allow to cool.
  4. Mix the lemon zest, juice and creme fraiche together and season to taste. If you need to, loosen the mixture with a little water to make it the consistency of heavy cream.
  5. Toss the pasta, peas and arugula into the dressing, flake in the salmon, then gently turn in the bowl a few times.
  6. Serve.
