Salmon & asparagus linguine
- 150 gram asparagus (cut into5cm/2in lengths)
- 2 eggs
- 0,5 lemon (for juice)
- 2 tablespoons fresh dill (chopped)
- 275 gram fresh linguine
- 175 gram smoked salmon (cut into stripes)
- ground black pepper
Cook the asparagus in salted boiling water for 2–5 minutes until just tender. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper,keeping the water hot in the pan.
Break the eggs into a round-bottomed bowl, and add the lemon juice.Set the bowl over a separate pan of hot water, making sure that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Whisk the eggs until warmed, pale and very frothy. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in half of the dill, then remove the bowl from the pan and set aside in a warm place.
Top up the asparagus water with boiling water, and bring back to the boil.
Add the linguine, and boil for 7–8 minutes.
Drain the linguine, reserving the water, then return the linguine to the pan.
Add the asparagus and salmon with 1 ladleful of the cooking water and the lemon egg sauce. Mix and add more water if necessary.
Season with the rest of the dill, salt and pepper.
