  • This recipe is the first pasta sauce I have ever cooked. In Italy in the late eighties the use of salmon for a pasta dish was considered a little bit "exotic" and "adventurous", I loved it. I have improved the recipe over the years and substitute canned with fresh salmon. The flavour improves significantly. Recipe with step by step pictures
