  • 100 ml Crème Fraiche
  • 1 Lemon

  • Snap the asparagus at the weakest part to remove the woody end. Chop into 2 or 3 pieces depending on the size of the asparagus spears. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions. When finished cooking reserve a mugful of pasta water before draining.
  • Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan and add the asparagus. Fry for a couple of minutes then add the garlic. Flake the salmon and add to the frying pan to heat through. Add the juice of the lemon then add the crème fraiche, 2 tbsp of pasta water, capers and the cooked pasta. Toss thoroughly to coat.
