Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place penne pasta in the pot, cook 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion until tender. Pour in the fish stock and white wine, and cook until reduced by 1/2.
  3. Remove the skillet from heat, and pour in the Scotch whiskey. Using a long match, carefully ignite the Scotch. Once the flame had subsided, return the skillet to medium heat, and mix in the salmon. Stir in the cream, and bring the mixture to a boil. Continue to cook and stir until thickened.
  4. In a large bowl, toss the cooked penne pasta with the salmon mixture. Season with pepper, and top with Parmesan cheese and parsley to serve.

Am lost for words to describe quite how good this was. Let's just say that 2 adults behaved like kids and actually licked the plates so as not to miss any. One small thing - couldn't get the sauce quite thick enough, so just added a little cornstarch with no detriment to flavour. Many thanks for the recipe.

Wonderful flavours in this recipe - definitely restaurant quality. Suitable for those dinner occassions when you want to make an impression without having to do too much perparation or spend a longer time cooking. The only change I made was to add some cornflour to thicken the sauce. This is going into my 'very special recipes' folder. :)

Absolutely excellent. I substituted chicken stock for the fish stock and left out the Scotch and it was still amazing. You can almost have this on the table in the time it takes to boil water and cook the pasta.

Scotch and heavy cream. Separately, they are two of my favorite liquids. Together, they are the most amazing cream sauce my tongue has ever met. Thank you, Emma Jay. Thank you.

This was fabulous. Impressed the pants off my dinner guests. I'm definitely keeping this recipe.

Lovely delicate sauce. I would not add any thickeners. Can be used with random amounts of left over jarred salmon.
