Wild salmon tagliatelle

Recipe (dinner)

I’m at Cohoe Beach, Cook Inlet in Alaska where my mate Brian just caught a beautiful sockeye salmon. Here the greatest red Alaska salmon is caught, one by one in set nets. A responsible way of fishing without by-catch. The typical beautiful colour of the salmon is this red because it’s diet consists for a big part of shrimps.

    Take the frying pan and heat the butter. Add the mushrooms and fry them until brown. Now add the salmon and fry along for a minute.

    Add the caper and deglaze with lemon juice. Let this simmer for 3 minutes. Then add the cream and let it boil down for 2 minutes.

    When the pasta is al dente drain it and then add directly to the sauce. Now add the tarragon and season with salt and pepper. Serve directly. Enjoy!
