step 1

Pour water in a large pan and bring to the boil.

In saucepan heat the extra virgin olive oil and add finely chopped onion. Sizzle for 5 minutes until the onion is translucent soft and lightly golden.

Add the peas to the sizzling oil and stir fry for 2 minutes. Then pour enough water to almost cover the peas and season with salt. Next, simmer for 10 to 12 minutes with the lid on. This way, the peas will be thoroughly cooked and soft.

Cut the fresh salmon fillet into small chunks. Add them to the peas and tip in the dry chives.

Continue cooking for 5 minutes without the lid to allow the water to evaporate and the sauce to thicken. Stir occasionally.

step 3

In the meantime, cook the pasta in the pan of boiling water according to packet instructions. Be sure to cook the pasta al dente which means 'firm to the bite'. Unless the pasta is made in Italy (think DeCecco, Barilla, Grignano) do not trust the cooking time reported on the package. Start tasting the pasta up to 5 minutes before and remove upfront in necessary.

Add the pasta to the pan with peas and salmon, stir and sizzle for a half a minute on medium heat while mixing.

Transfer to a serving dish, sprinkle with a pinch of chives, and drizzle with a splash of extra virgin olive oil for added omega-6 fats.

Job done! Go and enjoy it.

Tips

  • Use wholemeal pasta for a fiber boost making this dish even healthier.

  • You can replace fresh salmon with smoked salmon if preferred. Just remember to reduce the amount of salt as smoked salmon is already salted.
