Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add salmon and poach until it flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes. Remove salmon and set aside to cool.

  • Add pasta to the boiling water and cook until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Add asparagus during the last 3 minutes of cooking. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup of cooking liquid. Return pasta and asparagus to the pot.

  • Remove salmon skin and discard. Flake salmon into the pan, then add feta cheese, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place over medium-low heat and gently stir to combine with the pasta and asparagus, adding a little of the reserved cooking water as needed to achieve a creamy consistency. Serve immediately.

Tips

Cook's Notes:

For best results use a good quality full-fat feta cheese, preferably from sheep's milk; a low-fat feta cheese will not result in the same creamy consistency.

You could also use frozen peas instead of, or in addition to, asparagus.
