You’ll notice that this Syn Free Creamy Salmon and Asparagus Pasta recipe uses an egg to make the sauce.

If you’re concerned about this don’t be. It’s the traditional way of making pasta sauces like Carbonara, and it’s perfectly safe as the egg is going to cook enough whilst you stir it into the hot pasta.

Having said that, you should avoid this if you’re pregnant or if you’re cooking it for an older person – They should avoid raw and lightly cooked eggs just in case.

Asparagus compliments the salmon perfectly, and if you’re making this between late April and late June you really should try using some British Asparagus, you can’t beat it!

  1. Ok I tried this and wow it’s going to be a firm favourite in fact my hubby has just asked if we can have it again tomorrow so that shows

  2. Who would believe that such a creamy tasty dish could be syn free. This is definitely a winner in our house and being such a quick dish to prepare will be on the menu regularly. Thank you

    1. I’m sure you could, Vicki. I love leftovers the next day! Refrigerate as soon as it’s cool and store in a sealed container. 🙂

    1. Hi Abby
      You could use an alternative cheese as HEA if you wanted to, and fish stock can be replaced with vegetable stock. 🙂

  3. Just made this for my lunch and wow!!!!! By far my fave spaghetti dish up to now. I would highly recommend to anyone!!!

  4. What type of pasta have you used in this, looks like long pieces of macaroni? Would be perfect for my weaning baby!

  5. Was a bit unsure because if the fish stock and stockpot(which I couldn’t find so made do without) How wrong was I! What a tasty dish! Will definitely be making it again.
