Smoked Salmon Spaghetti
I developed this simple, yet super flavourful pasta dish over 4 years ago for Crush magazine Issue 5.  Years on, it is still a firm favourite at home, you can’t go wrong with this flavour combination. YUM!

Whole-wheat Spaghetti with Smoked Salmon, Cucumber, Lemon, Dill & Crème Fraiche.
Ingredients:
250 g whole-wheat spaghetti
150 g smoked salmon, cut into strips (or use smoked salmon offcuts)
1 cucumber, julienned or shaved into ribbons
4 spring onions, thinly sliced
A few sprigs of dill, torn
Juice and zest of 1 large lemon
45 ml (3 T) extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
250 ml (1 c) crème fraiche or smooth cottage cheese

Method:
Boil the pasta in salted water until al dente and drain.
In a large mixing bowl, gently combine the spaghetti with the remaining ingredients excluding the sour cream.
Place in serving bowls. Use a dessertspoon to place a dollop of creme fraiche or smooth cottage cheese onto each portion.
Eat warm or at room temperature.
Tip: Gently toss cubed avo to the pasta for even more decadence.
