Linguine with Smoked Salmon

We made linguine with smoked salmon last night based on the Tagliatelle Nero e Bianco con Salmone Fumigato recipe in 100 Great Pasta Dishes by Ann and Franco Taruschio. That’s it on the front cover…

100 Great Pasta Dishes

Ours was fabulous, and I’ll bet the Taruschio version is even better!

We bought fresh pasta instead of making it ourselves. We used linguine instead of tagliatelle, and substituted spinach linguine for the purple tagliatelle made by colouring it with squid ink. (We can get squid ink at 7 Seas, but it’s a 2 or 3 day advance special order.)

Apart from that we stuck pretty much to the recipe. It is definitely worth the time and effort to julienne the smoked salmon. The sauce fills the kitchen with a fabulous aroma as you reduce the wine, butter, shallots and olive oil mixture.
