  • 1/2 pound farfalle pasta
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 large clove or 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 oz canned smoked salmon
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh peas
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream or almond milk or full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped mint leaves


  • Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute.
  • Add canned salmon (as much or as little of the can as you would like) and peas, saute for 1 minute. Sprinkle flour over salmon and peas, then mix in well, sauteeing for another minute.
  • Slowly pour in heavy cream. Mix, then slowly add white wine, lemon juice, and parmesan cheese.
  • Lower heat to low-medium, and continue stirring sauce with salmon and peas until sauce is slightly thickened.
  • Add cooked pasta along with 1/4 cup hot starchy pasta water reserve.
  • Stir pasta, sauce, salmon, and peas together until well blended. Turn off heat.
  • Add mint leaves, stir.
  • Top off with some freshly grated parmesan if you wish.
  • Serve immediately.


To make this dairy-free, substitute heavy cream with full fat coconut milk or almond milk, and parmesan cheese with a non-dairy block cheese.
