Salmon and Bowtie Pasta Salad

I made this for the first time tonight and it was really good.

Salmon and Bowtie Pasta Salad

Salmon and Bowtie Pasta Salad


500g salmon fillets
500g bowtie pasta (I used baby bowtie pasta)
1 1/2 cups or 240g frozen peas
2/3 cup or 160g sour cream/crème fraiche
1 Tbs lemon juice
2 tsp water
2 Tbs green peppercorns, rinsed and drained
1 Tbs coarsely chopped fresh dill
2 trimmed sticks of celery, sliced thinly on the diagonal
1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh chives


1 Cook salmon, uncovered, in large heated oiled frying pan until lightly browned on both sides. Drain on a paper towel.

2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling water. Just before draining the pasta add the thawed peas to the pasta, then drain.

3. Combine sour cream, juice, water, peppercorns and dill in small bowl.

4. Place salmon in a large bowl; using a fork, flake salmon. Add celery, chives, sour cream mixture, pasta and peas; too gently to combine.

I suppose canned salmon would be fine. The green peppercorns used in this recipe are packed in brine. You can use capers too.

Can you do this with canned salmon?

Are the green peppercorns capers? I thought green peppercorns were just another type of pepper. Please set me straight. Thanks.

so yummy. I make a creamy bowtie and peas pasta but never thought of adding something like salmon. Nice twist to our next pasta night :)

Finn, Salmon is expensive here in Brazil. It's nor very popular, but I love it! Thanks for posting it Twink ;) ________________________________________ "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." M.Gandhi

That looks delicious and sounds pretty easy to do. As always, your pictures look mouth-watering good. Giant peas and all. 8)

It's only you. ;) That's a child size bowl so objects inside it may appear larger than they actually are.

MMmm this looks real good! I'm going to make this once I do some grocery shopping but I'm going to leave out the celery! Thanks!

Good thinking, Finn. I might do that next time too.

Oooo, it looks delicious. I'll have to try this. Salmon is the only cheap thing here. I think I'll make it with warm smoked salmon for extra flavor.

I left out the celery because we didn't have any and I wasn't about to ask Mr.T to get some on the way home. ;)

I'm salmon-obsessed lately. This sounds really good!
