Easy salmon pasta

I get asked to cook this dish at least twice a week, every week! And I don't mind as it's super easy, quick and delicious. Plus smoked salmon is packed with Omega 3.
It's a great dish all year long as you can change the veggies according to the season. 

Prep time 5 minutes, cooking 10 minutes 

Here's what you need:
Pasta - whichever shape you fancy
1 packet of smoked salmon - alternatively smoked trout will work too
1/2 pot of single cream
frozen or fresh garden peas
green veg - you can be quite creative here, I tend to use what I can find in the fridge depending on the season, my recommendation would be either broccoli, asparagus, kale or green beans 
juice of half a lemon - if you don't want it to be too tangy add less
black pepper
fresh dill

fresh dill from my garden 
Here's how to do it:
In a pot boil water with a pinch of salt and cook your pasta according to packet instructions. If you're using additional green veg, add them for the last 5 minutes of cooking your pasta, into the same pot. Drain pasta and veg together.
Heat up a not stick frying pan, add salmon. Fry for few minutes until it changes colour and with a wooden spoon break into small pieces. Add frozen peas. In a small bowl mix cream with black pepper and lemon juice, pour into the frying pan and take off heat. Add chopped fresh dill. Mix the boiled pasta and green veg with the salmon sauce. Enjoy, I promise it's delicious for the whole family!!
