Creamy Avocado & Smoked Salmon Pasta
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
This is a perfect dish to whip up in just a few minutes! It is simple yet so good and makes a lovely starter if you have friends over for dinner.
You can prepare the sauce whilst the pasta is cooking. Place the crushed garlic, lemon juice, chopped avocado and yogurt in a food processor. Process until smooth. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Pour the sauce in a bowl, add the chopped salmon and the chopped basil, and combine well.
When the pasta is al dente, drain, but reserve a few tablespoons of water. Mix the sauce and pasta gently in a large bowl, combining well, adding a little of the reserved water if sauce is too thick.
Serve garnished with strips of lemon or even better, use the peel of the lemon or orange to form a rose. Add a few leaves of basil.
Note - The sauce will taste equally good if in the absence of basil you use parsley
Hi, I'm Jacqui, creator of The Blender and Senza G. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2012 and since then, gluten free cooking has become a passion of mine. I just love food, experimenting and creating new gluten free recipes or re-inventing old favorite ones so I can still enjoy what I used to love before. Being Celiac makes cooking more challenging but with loads of patience, intensive research and a burning desire to learn more and more, living the Gluten Free lifestyle has become much much easier. My mission has been that gluten free food should taste good. Gluten Free does not mean taste free and I will keep on working to discover new ways of making it even better! ❤️
