Recipe: Salmon pasta with dill

Pasta with aromatic herbs
November 30, 2009

DillAs mentioned in the post November Harvest, the dill sowed in September is finally ready to be harvested.
I can't grow dill here in Sicily during summer, it's too hot and the plants die in June, so I grow it only during winter.

Every year I can't wait to harvest it again, and as a celebration I choose a classic match: salmon and dill.

Meanwhile cook the single cream in a pan for five minutes. Remove from heat and add minced chives and smoked salmon cut into stripes.
Drain well the pasta, season with the salmon sauce and garnish with dill.
