finely diced onion
diced smoked salmon
2 fluid ounces
heavy whipping cream
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
This is tasty. Be careful not to over salt, as the smoked salmon will add a lot of saltieness to the sauce. This recipe makes a pretty small amount of sauce, so if you're serving more than 2 or 3 people, I suggest doubling it.
Not what I was expecting, and we won't make it again. We used a high quality smoked salmon, but it tasted fishy to my husband and I.
My dinner guests really enjoyed this one. Make sure you do burn off the vodka though, because I didn't at first and it was WAY too strong, like taking a bite out of a shot of vodka or something. YUCK. I had to boil the sauce for a little while to burn all the alcohol off of it. Over all, great taste made it with farafelle pasta and served it with asparagus.
I am from Scotland, the home of smoked salmon and it took this great American site to show me the best ever recipe for smoked salmon. Everyone who tries it wants to know the recipe.
oh this is good!!!...i doubled the recipe to use up the ingreds i had...the only thing i changed was to use sweet red pepper (chopped) instead of fresh tomatoes coz i didnot have them and used 'alymers gourmet pasta sauce with shrooms' for the tom sauce otherwise...i simmered it quite awhile coz i think i used too much cream but it reduced nicely, no harsh vodka taste and well it was well worth making...will forsure recommend this recipe and i will make it again...thanks for sharing...
I found this recipe to be wonderful with my home-made smoked salmon but, very, very rich. I subsituted 1% milk with half & half instead of the heavy cream. The cayene pepper gave it just the right bite and the more you simmer, the thicker the sauce. No need to simmer the vodka down off of the burner however....just turn the burner down super low, it still works!
Made this last night for dinner with my boyfriend and it was fabulous! Very easy and elegant. Served it over farfalle with sauteed asparagus spears on the side. I added two cloves of garlic and a chopped shallot to the sauce and a bit more onion (red) than called for. To make it healthier (and because I do not like very rich sauces on my pasta) I used half-n-half in place of the heavy cream and Smart Balance Light margarine instead of butter. I did not add any additional salt. I was worried that it would be too salty, but after adding the tomatoes (on the advice of other reviewers, added in the last few minutes of making the sauce) and mixing with the pasta, the saltiness was fine. Will definitely make again! Also, I doubled the sauce except for the salmon (chopped up 4 oz, which was a lot) and it ended up being WAY more than just two of us needed. If you are making it for 2-3 people and are eating normal-sized portions, I would not double the sauce.
I made this with some salmon fillets that I baked in the oven. I really liked it (although I wish I had added some garlic) but Husband wasn't so keen on the vodka flavor. He also didn't much like the super pink appearance. I give it 5 stars, he gives it 3. I served it with buttered egg noodles and fresh green beans. Good stuff!
