pasta boat recipes

This dish is also one of my favorite pasta boat recipes. It tastes so good that you literally want to lick off your hands and fingers!

You make this pasta boat recipe in about 40 minutes and it's good for 4 people.

First, you have to make the dressing, then the pasta.

Okay, here we go...

You will need the following ingredients:

  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • 300 gr smoked salmon
  • 350 gr Pappardelle pasta
  • Some butter
  • 6 large basil leaves
  • 6 coriander leaves
  • Half a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of coriander seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 small shallot
  • 50 ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • some parsley

How to make the dressing:

  1. First you have to chop the shallot finely. Put it in a small pan, together with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Now let it fry gently for about 5 minutes. The aim is that it becomes soft.
  2. Then, add the rest of the olive oil and the lemon juice. Let it gently cook further.
  3. Start to take the skin off of the tomatoes and get rid of the seeds in it. Cut them in small cubes.
  4. Now shred the basil leaves.
  5. Put the coriander seeds in a pestle and mortar and pound it.
  6. Throw step 3, 4 and 5 in the frying pan, together with the balsamic vinegar. Add salt and pepper and let everything go up in each other for another 5 minutes.

How to make the pasta:

  1. First, you take a big pot of water and you add a handful of salt. (On my transatlantics I just used seawater...) Put the pot on the fire until the water boils.


2. Now you throw in the pappardelle and you let it cook. The duration depends on whether you're using fresh pasta or out of a bag/box.

Check from time to time if the pasta is al dente, which means that it's not hard anymore, but that you still got some bite...If the pasta falls apart, you went way too far!

3. When the pappardelle is al dente, stop the fire and let the pasta drain.

You can put some butter on it, if you want it.

Stir it around.

4. Now cut the smoked salmon in stripes of 2 cm wide. Add it to the pasta and mix it in.

5. Put it on a plate and add some salt and pepper. Sprinkle the dressing over the dish and put some parsley on it.

You can add some rasped Parmesan over it, if you like.

Et voila, you have made another one of the best pasta boat recipes!

Bon Appetit!
