Fast and Delicious Creamy Salmon Pasta Sauce

“For those who don't have a lot of time to cook, but do enjoy a self prepared meal. I "created" this recipe by mixing 2 recipes and omitting things that I don't really like and adding things that feature alot in my meals. Easy to clean up too.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the onions in rings (or slice the leek in small rings). Cut - or rip apart with your fingers - the smoked salmon in smaller pieces. Size does not matter, I like it chunky :).
  2. Heat the butter or olive oil in a saucepan and bake the onions/leek until they're golden-brown (add garlic if desired).
  3. Pour cream, sambal oelek and tomato puree in the saucepan and keep stirring for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the alcohol to the saucepan (optional). (I usually add on sight and use more than 1 cup, but not all people like liquor the way I do). Stir for 1/2 minute. Add salmon and stir for 1 more minute. Done!
  5. Prepare pasta according to description on package. Pour sauce over pasta, decorate with fresh herbs and serve with a glass of white wine.
