Hot Smoked Salmon Tagliatelle

Ok so…we all want week night dinners that takes 10 minutes but still give a nice filling tasty punch. This recipe is perfect for that and can easily be enjoyed with a nice glass of wine.

Big smoked fish flavour, heat of chilli, sweet onion and garlic.

I hot smoke salmon in my pizza oven sometimes but shop bought hot smoked salmon is perfect and no hassle.

You can use any kind of smoked fish for this, I sometimes have trout or mackerel instead of salmon.

Traditionally you’re not meant to have Parmesan with fish but….I quite like it with this.
