Salmon, capers and crème fraiche pasta recipe


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 150g smoked salmon, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons capers, drained
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Pasta of your choice (we used penne)
  • Olive oil
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat, in a large skillet. 

Add the chopped onion until translucent. Add your smoked salmon and keep it cooking for one to two minutes. Pour in the cream and add the capers to your skillet. Season to your liking with salt and pepper. 

Remember, don’t add too much salt as the smoked salmon and capers are both salty already. 

Add the pasta and toss it through. 

You can add a couple of tablespoons of the pasta cooking water to the sauce if there is not enough for your pasta, to thin the sauce down. 

Serve with a sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and enjoy with a glass of Riversands Let’s Dance sparkling wine!
