Spicy Salmon Pasta

This warm salad is super easy to throw together and provides you with a decent amount of fibre, protein and carbohydrates to keep you going throughout the day. Try mix up the vegetables with whatever you have on hand, as it is one of those meals that you can use to get rid of the odd veges in the fridge.


1 cup smoked salmon

1-2 bunches of fresh spinach

1 red capsicum, cut into strips

1 red onion, finely chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

1 pinch of red chilli flakes

spring onion to garnish

salt/pepper to taste


In a pot, boil one serving of fettucine pasta per the instructions on the packet. In a pan, heat up olive oil on medium to high heat. Add the finely chopped red onion and chilli flakes, cook until onions are translucent and the chilli is fragrant. Add in chunks of smoked salmon and capsicum, and saute until the salmon is slightly crispy on the edges and a lighter shade of pink, three to four minutes. Stir through the spinach and cook until wilted. Add in the cooked fettucine and stir to combine and coat the pasta in the flavours. Garnish with spring onion. Enjoy.
