Creamy Salmon and Spinach Pasta | Recipe

November 14, 2016

I love pasta, it’s just so easy to put quick dinners together and they’re jolly tasty too. Today’s recipe is a Creamy Salmon and Spinach Pasta.

I came up with this recipe as I had all the ingredients to use up in the fridge. Plus I was a little stretched for time. At first I was a bit worried it would be soggy with the spinach blitzed in the food processor. But actually that worked really well and was finer than I could ever chop it.



Creamy Salmon and Spinach Pasta
Serves 2
An easy recipe, that's fairly healthy and very tasty.
Write a review
  1. 2 Filets of salmon
  2. 160g Pasta (we used spelt pasta)
  3. 150g Mushrooms, thinly sliced
  4. 2 Cloves garlic, crushed
  5. 300g Spinach, blitzed in a food processor (or finely sliced)
  6. 200g Low fat creme fraiche
  7. Freshly ground black pepper, to season
  1. Heat the oven to 200C.
  2. Cover the salmon with oil and pepper, then wrap in foil. Put in the oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Prep the rest of the recipe and begin cooking the pasta.
  4. Fry the mushroom and garlic in a pan, then add in the spinach so it wilts. Take off the heat.
  5. Stir in the creme fraiche and ground pepper into the pan.
  6. Drain the pasta, stir into the sauce.
  7. Remove the salmon from the oven and flake.
  8. Serve the pasta into bowls then place the salmon across the top.
  9. Enjoy!
  1. Cover with cheese once served if you want!

The pasta I used again comes from the M&S Spelt Pasta range. I’m so glad to see spelt as an option on the shelves as I much prefer it to wholewheat. Also if you want to make it completely veggie omit the salmon and use more mushrooms. I also posted another autumnal pasta recipe last week, so check that out too.

    I use to eat a variation of this meal a lot! I haven’t in a good few years but salmon and pasta I was all over that! x

    I love the idea of the creamy spinach and pasta, but not a fan of salmon.

      Maybe you could try it with chicken instead!

    Great recipe, pasta is my favourite and there aren’t enough meal ideas with spinach. I love spinach! So excited to try this, gorgeous photos xxx

      I love spinach too! I had some to use up so I thought this would be a good way of using it 🙂

    Oooh this looks tasty! I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate salmon into our mid week meals. I find it really difficult to keep salmon interesting. This looks fab tho!!

      I am the same, I often just go with soy/honey salmon but it gets a bit samey!

    Great recipe. My son loves pasta. What is spelt pasta?

    • Reply MissPond November 16, 2016 at 6:33 pm

      Thank you! Spelt flour is a whole grain, wheat-free flour and it makes delicious pasta.

      Let me know what you make! I thought it was super yum 🙂

    Sounds delicious. I’d probably swap the salmon for chicken and I’m not a fish fan. One for the bank tho for sure x

    • Reply MissPond November 16, 2016 at 6:35 pm

      Chicken would definitely work in this I’m sure. Hope you enjoy if you make it!
