Salmon, pea and mint pasta

A nice, quick and healthy meal that can be made in 20 minutes. Great to eat on a Tuesday night in-front of Eastenders!


2 lightly smoked salmon fillets (cut into chunks)

3 mug fulls of dried Penne pasta

100g frozen peas 

100g frozen soya beans (chunkily chopped asparagus if you’d prefer!)

A large handful of finely chopped fresh mint 

3 tablespoons of good olive oil 

A handful of roughly grated parmesan cheese

Seasoning (sea salt and ground black pepper)

2 x fresh lemon wedges

– serves 2 – 



1. Boil your pasta until it’s just about ready for draining and then at the last minute add in your frozen peas and soya beans. Leave for a few minutes so that the peas and beans are cooked and then drain 

2. Heat the saucepan and add in the olive oil, seasoning and mint. Add the pasta, peas and beans and give a good stir. Add in your salmon chunks and cook for a couple of minutes. 

3. Place your some of your grated parmesan to the bottom of your bowl, and pour in your salmon and pasta, then top with the rest of the parmesan and a squeeze of lemon.
