Just try and stop us from making this one.

@ellena_fit has crowned this as the best salmon pasta recipe. And just looking at the ingredients — salmon, pasta, cream, parmesan cheese — we’re coming round to that idea.

Remember, if you choose to absolutely drown your pasta in cheese, then the macros will differ, but at the end of the day, what’s a pasta dish without copious amounts of cheese?

Serves 4


  • 400 g salmon fillet
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 2 tsp Italian herbs
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 220 g dried macaroni
  • 250 ml light cream
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 20 g parmesan



First, put your pasta on to cook according to the instructions on the packet. 


While pasta is cooking, prepare your salmon by slicing it into small chunks, spraying with low-calorie cooking spray and sprinkling with paprika, garlic, Italian herbs and salt. 


Pan fry the salmon until cooked through. 


Once the salmon is cooked, remove it from the pan. Add garlic, tomato puree, Italian herbs and paprika to the pan. 


When those ingredients are combined, stir through your cream and add a bit of pasta water. 


Then add some parmesan and your pasta. Stir until the pasta is evenly coated in the sauce. 


Add the salmon to the pasta, serve up and dig in.

If she’s not in the kitchen, she’s tucked up with a book for an early night, or you’ll find her in the gym working up a sweat. Afterall, all those carbs require quite the appetite.
