Penne with Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Sauce

This is my family’s all-time favourite dinner party pasta dish. Our friends request it all the time. I’m happy to oblige because it tastes great, and the sauce makes itself! It’s easy. Steaming wet, just-cooked pasta and melting cream cheese form an incredibly smooth luxurious sauce. The smoked salmon adds flavour extravagance that’s balanced by the familiar flavours of capers, dill, lemon, onion and mustard. A five-star dish for sharing!

Prosciutto-Wrapped Salmon

Wrapping prosciutto around salmon fillets is an easy way to dress up fish while adding some intense flavour and bringing flair to your table. The prosciutto is very easy to work with. It actually “shrink wraps” as it cooks, tightly sealing itself to the fish. It’s a spectacular presentation and very tasty.

Maple Mustard Grilled Salmon

Maple Mustard Grilled Salmon

Salmon is a regular guest at our table, often grilled with this simple sauce. Its sweet and pungent flavour easily stands up to the richness of the fish. Whenever possible we choose wild Pacific salmon; it’s the most sustainable choice available. We’re also big fans of farm-raised Atlantic salmon. It’s much better for us, and the environment, than beef or meat every day.
