A simple creamy pasta dish made with salmon, frozen peas and cream. A great way to encourage get kids to eat fish and ready in just 15 minutes. The perfect mid-week family meal.


  • 300g / 10.5oz pasta
  • 1/2 tbsp oil or butter
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 salmon fillets, skin removed
  • 100g / 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 100ml / 0.5 cup single cream


  1. Cook the pasta in a saucepan on the hob according to the package instructions.
  2. Heat the oil or butter in a frying pan and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes until softened but not browned.
  3. Cut the salmon into small pieces (I find it easier to do this with scissors) and then add to the pan along with the frozen peas and the stock cube.
  4. Remove 100ml of the water from the pasta and add that to the pan. Stir until the stock cube has dissolved.
  5. Cook this on low for about 5 minutes, turning the salmon pieces once.
  6. Remove from the heat and then stir in the cream.
  7. When the pasta has cooked, drain well and then add to the pan with the salmon. Mix well and then serve immediately.
