Creamy Salmon Fettuccine with Capers, Dill and Cherry Tomatoes Recipe

This is one of my favourite recipes at the moment, it’s just that little bit special and would be PERFECT for a stay at home date night! The creamy salmon fettuccine part is delightful by itself, but adding capers, dill and cherry tomatoes take it to a whole ‘nother level!

This recipe calls for hot smoked salmon which can be found in the cold foods section by the thinly sliced smoked salmon. It’s a completely different kettle of fish though (damn I love a good food pun) as they are whole smokey pre-cooked salmon fillets. You get two in a packet for about $8 which I think is a good price for meat for a meal that will feed the whole family. And it’s oh-so good!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 4


  • 185g hot smoked salmon, flaked
