Spaghetti with Spicy Salmon and Olives Recipe

How to Make Spaghetti with Spicy Salmon and Olives


  1. Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water to packet directions (or until al dente).
  2. Drain the salmon and set aside. Drain olives, remove the pits and roughly chop. Add the salmon to the olives. Stir to combine.
  3. Toast pine nuts by dry frying over a medium heat, moving around continuously, until lightly toasted. Set aside. 
  4. Meanwhile, place the olive oil into a large frying pan set over a medium heat. Slice the garlic and add to pan, cooking until softened.
  5. Using tongs, carefully lift out pasta from pot, shaking off excess water. Transfer the cooked pasta to the salmon mixture, along with a splash of the pasta water. Turn off the heat, add the parsley and toasted pine nuts and stir.
  6. Add lemon juice and chilli (if using) to taste and serve immediately.

Tip: Try substituting the olives for chopped, roasted red capsicum (peppers) or artichokes.
