- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 1 1/2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
- 1-2 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Step 1 Cook pasta
Cook the pasta in plenty of salted boiling water according to package instructions. After cooking, drain water and let dry.
Step 2 Make the pesto
Wash the parsley and dry it. Cut stems and chop in a food processor (or multi chopper) along with the leaves. Peel the garlic.
Add the garlic, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese and olive oil to the parsley in the blender. Blend until a homogeneous, creamy texture is reached.
Step 3 Heat salmon and sauce
Cut the smoked salmon into pieces. Then fry in a pan for 5 minutes on medium heat. Remove the salmon from the pan and warm the pesto sauce inside. Add the cooked pasta and mix both together.
Step 4 Plate and serve
Arrange the pasta with the pesto, place the fried smoked salmon on top and season with pepper. Serve and enjoy.
