This Smoked Salmon Spaghetti Carbonara uses hot smoked salmon fillets. You could also use traditional smoked salmon slices (just cut into thick strips and add them at the end; the heat of the pasta will lightly cook them through).

You could use any smoked fish you like – smoked mackerel would also be delish! Just make sure you adjust the Syns/Calories and Points accordingly.

You could also add a little kick to this Smoked Salmon Spaghetti Carbonara by adding a little pinch of chilli powder!

Don’t panic about the eggs being “raw” in this recipe – the heat of the cooked pasta, and residual heat of the pan cooks them through and gives a silky smooth and creamy sauce. By removing the pan from the heat, you’ll make sure the eggs don’t scramble!

How do I make this Smoked Salmon Spaghetti Carbonara?

Step 1

Cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packet. In the last 4 minutes of cooking time, add the frozen peas into the spaghetti to cook through.

Step 2

Beat the eggs in a bowl with the finely grated parmesan, chives, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Step 3

Drain the spaghetti and peas, but keep 250mls of the pasta water back – you’ll use this later. Keep the pasta and peas in the colander.

Step 4

Using the pan which you cooked the spaghetti and peas in, pop back on the heat and spray with low calorie cooking spray. Flake the hot smoked salmon fillets into the pan and heat through for a few minutes.

Step 5

Return the spaghetti and peas back to the saucepan with the salmon. Turn off the hob and remove the pan from the heat. Add the beaten egg mix, along with the pasta water and stir thoroughly, ensuring all the spaghetti is coated in the egg – this should take a couple of minutes.

Step 6

Serve immediately and top with a little sprinkle of parmesan if required!

    1. Hi Shaz
      If you scroll to the recipe card and adjust the number of servings, the quantities will be re-calculated for you. We haven’t recommended freezing this, as it doesn’t have a freezer symbol on the recipe card.

    1. Hi Nicole
      It should be okay to save in a suitable sealed container in the fridge and have the next day, but make sure you reheat carefully. 🙂
