How to make Salmon & asparagus linguine

Salmon & asparagus linguine







Cook Time

15-20 Min


  • 150g/5oz asparagus, cut into 5cm/2in lengths
  • 2 eggs
  • juice of 1⁄2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 275g/10oz fresh linguine
  • 175g/6oz smoked salmon trimmings, cut into strips
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Cook the asparagus in salted boiling water for 2–5 minutes until just tender. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper, keeping the water hot in the pan.
  • Break the eggs into a round-bottomed bowl, and add the lemon juice. Set the bowl over a separate pan of hot water, making sure that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Whisk the eggs until warmed, pale and very frothy. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in half of the dill, then remove the bowl from the pan and set aside in a warm place.
  • Top up the asparagus water with boiling water, and bring back to the boil. Add the linguine, and boil for 7–8 minutes.
  • Drain the linguine, reserving the water, then return the linguine to the pan. Add the asparagus and salmon with 1 ladleful of the cooking water and the lemon sauce. Toss and add more water if necessary.
  • Season with the rest of the dill, and serve immediately
