  1. Cook pasta in quantities required for the number of servings as recommended on the pack..
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a small pan. Put the fennel seeds in and allow them to sizzle for about 10 seconds. Turn off the heat and allow to infuse for the remainder of the cooking time.
  3. Review the salmon and chop up as required. If using trimmings, discard any dried-up bits.
  4. Drain the pasta when ready. Return to the pan, then add the salmon, creme fraiche/fromage frais and olive oil/seed mixture. Heat gently while stirring to combine. Season with freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.

Chef's note

I made this with soured cream, homemade pasta, cut into rough ribbons, served with roasted sweet peppers and lots of fresh dill. A delicious recipe that will be used again and again.
