Smoked Salmon Pasta with Capers and Fresh Dill

Smoked Salmon Pasta

This recipe is another great way to serve the cedar plank grilled salmon that I featured in my blog on February 28, 2015.  It’s a family favorite that both my husband and my daughter ask for repeatedly.  In fact, I’ve made it so many times I don’t even look at the recipe anymore.

If I happen to be short on time or the weather doesn’t want to cooperate for grilling outdoors, another easy to fix alternative is purchasing smoked salmon from your local grocery store.

1) Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and place in a large serving bowl.

2) Flake the salmon filet apart in a medium bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients.

3) Add the salmon mixture to the pasta and toss until the pasta is evenly coated and the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
