Succulent and flaky salmon chunks are served on a bed of Italian tagliatelle and covered with a luscious creamy dill and lemon sauce. It’s time to dig in!


  • 4 fillet salmon - سمك السلمون
  • 2 cup half cream milk - لبن نصف دسم
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder - بودرة ثوم
  • 1 tablespoon flour - دقيق
  • 1 tablespoon butter - زبدة
  • 1/2 cup cooking cream (could be replaced with an extra 1/2 cup milk) - كريم الطهي
  • 1 large lemon (or replace with zest of two limes) - ليمون
  • 2 teaspoon dill (thinly sliced) - شبت
  • 1 cup broccoli (florets) - بروكلى
  • to taste salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل
  • 500 gram tagliatelle - مكرونة تلياتلي

Step by step

  1. In a pot, heat the milk until warm, then add the salmon fillet pieces. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and leave to poach on low heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until the fish is pink and cooked.
  2. Carefully remove the fish from the milk and set aside.
  3. In a separate pot, melt the butter then stir in the flour and mix. Pour in the salmon infused milk and whisk constantly until the milk thickens to the consistency of white pasta sauce.
  4. Stir in the cream for added richness, then add the finely chopped dill and the zest of one lemon. Adjust salt and pepper.
  5. Follow the pasta bag instructions to cook the pasta until al dente. Five minutes before the pasta is ready, drop the broccoli florets to cook with the pasta, then drain the water.
  6. To serve, divide the pasta and broccoli florets on 4 plates, and add one salmon fillet on top of each. Cover generously with dill lemon sauce and garnish with fresh dill.
