Creamy Salmon and Leek Pasta


In this video, you’ll see how to make a super-easy salmon and pasta recipe. Just a few simple ingredients, like sliced wild salmon fillets, leeks, and... See more crème fraiche, combine to create big flavor. The secret here is using tangy crème fraiche instead of cream to give it a deep, nutty, complex flavor but with the same wonderful texture of cream. You’ll also see how to prepare the slices of salmon, cooking them gently in the creamy sauce. Follow along with the recipe for Chef John’s Creamy Salmon and Leak Pasta. In the video, you’ll also see how to tell when the salmon’s done just right. Serve this creamy salmon over spaghetti. See more Chef John videos >>
