1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based frying pan. Fry the onion gently until softened, around 5 minutes.

2. Add the smoked salmon and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes.

3. Pour in the white wine, bring to the boil and cook briskly for 1 minute.

4. Mix in the double cream. Mix in the cayenne, paprika and 5 tablespoons of dill. Cook stirring for a further 3 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the tagliatelle and cook until 'al dente', around 3 minutes; drain.

6. In a large serving bowl toss together the tagliatelle and the salmon cream sauce. Sprinkle over the remaining dill and serve at once.

I Often make this dish I use frozen salmon and half fat creme fraiche making it a little cheaper to make as a good mid week meal.

This is a very simple dish to prepare but has a big wow factor.

So quick and easy even for someone like me. It is a good dinner party dish.

Yummy! You can always substitute the fresh dill for dried if you can't get fresh - as I couldn't (although use a lot less as it is stronger)
