Spaghetti with Creamy Smoked Salmon, Capsicum and Capers

I love fast pasta recipes. Quicker than calling for takeaway, this dish can be made in 10 minutes.  Using a luxury ingredient like smoked salmon may seem expensive, but in this dish, a little goes a long way to feed the whole family.


  • 400g Spaghetti

  • 1 tblsp salt

  • 2 tblsp olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 1 cup thickened cream

  • 200g roasted red capsicums

  • 2 tblsp unsalted capers, finely chopped

  • 40g grated Parmesan

  • 200g smoked salmon, cut into thin strips

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • ½ cup fresh chopped parsley


  • 1.

    Bring a large pot of water to the bowl and add the tblsp salt and the spaghetti.  Cook until al dente. Drain.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile add the olive oil to a medium frypan and heat on medium-high.  Add the garlic and saute for one minute, then add the cream, capsicums and capers and stir to combine.

  • 3.

    Cook for one minute, or until the  cream is starting to simmer, then remove from the heat,  add the parmesan, salmon, drained spaghetti , salt and  pepper to taste and fresh parsley and toss to combine.
