  • 400 gr tagliatelle
  • 400 gr salmon fresh
  • 300 gr spinach fresh
  • 3 leek
  • ½ onion
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 10 tomates cherry
  • 300 ml coconut milk
  • 1 cube vegetable broth
  • 8 gr saffron
  • 3 tbl spoon olive oil
  • 2 tbl spoon chives chopped

  • Fry the salmon briefly in a pan and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 180º.
    Remove the garlic from its membrane and place it in an oven dish together with the cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with some oil and put in the oven at 180º for 15 minutes.
  • Cut the leek and onion into small pieces. Put a tablespoon of oil in a pan and sauté the leek, onion and spinach until it has completely wilted. Add the coconut milk and the vegetable stock cube. Heat and mix well. Add the saffron and mix, turn off the heat. Taste and add a little more seasoning if necessary. Cut the baked salmon into pieces and mix it with the sauce.
  • In a large pot, put 2 liters of water together with a pinch of salt and one tablespoon of olive oil. Cook the tagliatelle according to the instructions on the package.
    Place it in a sieve to allow the water to drain.
  • Heat the pan with the coconut milk and vegetables and mix in the tagliatelle. Spoon onto the plates and place a few cherry tomatoes on each plate, garlic and finish with the shredded chives.


Pasta comes in so many shapes and sizes that it sometimes gives me stress of choice… But when I think of salmon, I automatically think of tagliatelle… Why? No idea, for me the two go perfectly together. Pasta is always accompanied by a lot of vegetables for me. For this dish it was leek, spinach and onion with an extra touch of oven-cooked cherry tomatoes and garlic. (I love a puffed or cooked garlic). These strong seasonings are accompanied by a sauce of soft coconut and saffron. And if it was tasty!
