Lactose-free pasta with salmon and asparagus

This lactose-free pasta with salmon and asparagus is all about the simple goodness — a dish that combines the delicate flavours of tender smoked salmon, vibrant asparagus, and a light yet creamy sauce without any lactose. Simple to make, this recipe is a fantastic choice for a quick and satisfying midweek meal that will leave you craving more.


  • Cook pasta according to the instructions on the packet.
  • Cut off the bottom of the asparagus, brush with oil, and grill for 5-10 minutes in a grill pan.
  • Flake the salmon.
  • Drain the pasta and save some of the cooking water. Mix crème fraiche with pasta and add a little cooking water.
  • Add salmon and asparagus and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with chives.

Opt for pasta shapes that can hold the sauce well, for example, penne, fusilli, or farfalle. These shapes help capture the flavours of the dish in every bite. The nooks and crannies of penne, the twisted spirals of fusilli, or the delicate folds of farfalle provide perfect pockets for the sauce to cling to, ensuring that each mouthful is bursting with creaminess and flavour.

How long is pasta with salmon and asparagus good for?
This salmon pasta with asparagus and crème fraiche will be good for 3-4 days in the fridge. Store it in a covered or lidded container to maintain its freshness and prevent it from absorbing other flavours from the fridge.
Can you freeze cooked salmon pasta?
Yes, you can freeze cooked salmon pasta. Let it cool to room temperature before freezing. Divide into individual or family-sized portions. This makes it easier to thaw and reheat the desired amount later without having to defrost the entire batch. Place the portions in airtight containers or freezer bags, ensuring they are sealed tightly. Cooked salmon pasta can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Remember that freezing may affect the texture of the pasta slightly, so it may not be as firm as when freshly cooked.
Can you reheat creamy salmon pasta?
You can reheat the salmon asparagus pasta if you have leftovers stored in the fridge or the freezer. If it is stored in the fridge, simply reheat it on the stove or in the oven or microwave. Add a little extra liquid or sauce if needed to prevent it from drying out. If the pasta has been frozen, move it from the freezer to the fridge the night before you plan to eat it. Allowing it to thaw slowly in the fridge helps maintain its texture.
