Poached Salmon in Cream & White Wine

This Pasta is a very welcome addition to my weekly menu as yet again it all can be gotton together in about 15 minutes. As the pasta takes about 10 minutes I generally start to cook the pasta after I have sautéed the onions and just before I add the brown sugar.

A good tip at the end it to add your cream to your cooked pasta first and add your onions & Salmon pieces when you serve the dish.

Serves 2


300g Salmon Steak
200ml Cream
Small glass of white wine
2 medium White Onions
1 garlic clove
Large Pinch of Dill (fresh or dried)
Tbsp Brown Sugar
200g Farfalle Pasta
Grated Parmesan
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Handful of roasted pinenuts

Cooking utensils 

Chopping Board
Sharp Knife
Frying Pan
Wooden Spoon
Medium Sized Saucepan

- Finely chop your onion & also your garlic

- Wash your salmon and chop into even sized pieces


- Cook pasta in boiling salted water as per cooking instructions
- Pre-heat your frying pan on a medium to high heat and add your olive oil

- Sauté your onions for 2-3 minutes and now add your garlic
- After another 3-4 minutes turn heat up to high and add your brown sugar & caramelize your onions for aprox a minute

- Turn heat back down to medium and add your white wine, cook in caramelized onions for a minute
- Now add your cream and also your Salmon pieces
- You now want the cream/wine sauce to come to a simmering boil and cook your Salmon for 6-7 minutes (to test if cooked simply remove from sauce and cut through)
- When salmon is poached you can now add your pinch of dill to the sauce

- To serve first add the cream to the cooked pasta and mix thru
- Serve your pasta on warmed plated and add your salmon on top with a healthy serving of parmesan cheese & roasted pinenuts
