Creamy Smoked Salmon Courgetti

Dinner, Fish

Who doesn’t love a creamy pasta dish; here I’ve substituted the pasta for courgetti (courgette spaghetti) and the cream for creme fraiche for a lighter option. If your not a fish lover, simply use chicken or pork. It’s the perfect lighter treat for a quick and easy midweek dinner.

Serves 2.

  • 1 large courgette
  • 75g frozen peas
  • 50g butter
  • 2 generous tbsp creme fraiche
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 30g grated parmesan
  • 200g smoked salmon
  • 100g defrosted cooked prawns
  1. Use a julienne peeler or spiralizer (if you have neither thinly slice the courgette into long slices) to create spaghetti-like courgette strips. 
  2. Steam the courgetti for 5 minutes until it still has a bite. Defrost the peas in a bowl of lukewarm water.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat. Once melted stir in the creme fraiche, lemon juice and finely grated parmesan until well combined. 
  4. Roughly chop the smoked salmon and stir through with the prawns, peas and steamed courgetti. 
  5. Season with black pepper and sit back and enjoy!
