Linguine with Smoked Salmon and Caviar

    20 minutes

    This amazing pasta uses only 4 ingredients for the sauce: cream, smoked salmon, caviar and parsley. The sauce is very rich; with a green salad, this makes a full meal.

    Serves: 4 

    • 500g fresh linguine
    • 1 cup (205ml) cream
    • 125g smoked salmon, chopped
    • 1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg
    • 1 pinch ground black pepper, or to taste
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons black caviar
    • 1 bunch chopped flat leaf parsley

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.
    2. Meanwhile, place cream in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in the smoked salmon and season with nutmeg and black pepper if desired. Stir frequently until thickened.
    3. Place drained pasta into a large serving bowl. Pour the cream sauce over the pasta and add the caviar. Toss gently until some of the caviar has broken and colours the pasta slightly. Serve immediately with a sprinkling of parsley.


    Do not add any salt until you are sure that the saltiness of the smoked salmon and caviar are not enough for your taste.

    The salt note is important. I made this two times. The second time I just used fresh salmon and seasoned to taste. Relly good recipe!!!!  -  07 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The taste was good. I was afraid it would be too salty from the salmon and caviar, but it was not. I had to add some salt. I made it for a special occasion - was not disappointed - just expected something more.  -  09 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Fresh, flavorful and easy; that's what makes this dish so successful. We smoked our own salmon and freshly grated nutmeg was a nice touch. I will make again.  -  24 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
