Salmon and Sauce:
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 3 pieces of boneless salmon (approx. 400g/14oz)- doesn't matter if the skin is on, as it can easily be removed during cooking
• ¼ tsp salt
• ¼ tsp black pepper
• 1 onion - peeled and finely chopped
• 2 garlic cloves - peeled and minced
• 500g passata
• 1 tbsp. tomato puree/paste - check for gluten free if required
• ½ tsp dried thyme
• 1 tsp sugar
• 3 tbsp double/heavy cream

• 300 g dried spaghetti or fresh pasta - gluten free if required
• 1 large courgette/zucchini

To serve:
• Grated parmesan or mature cheddar cheese
• Fresh basil - roughly chopped
• Black pepper

• Put the pasta one first – place a large pan of water on to boil.
• Once the water comes to the boil, add the pasta, and simmer for 12-13 minutes until cooked.
• Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat.
• Season the salmon pieces with ¼ tsp each of salt and pepper and place in the pan, skin-side-up.
• Fry for 3 minutes, until golden, then turn the salmon over.
• Move the salmon to one side of the pan and add in the onions.
• Cook the onions, stirring occasionally for 3-4 minutes, until softened.
• Stir in the minced garlic and cook for a further 30 seconds.
• Add the passata, tomato puree, thyme and sugar. Stir together and allow to simmer for 2-3 minutes.
• By now your pasta should be nearly ready. Add the spiralized courgette (zucchini) to the pan with the pasta for the last 30 seconds of cooking, then drain the pasta, reserving a cup of the cooking water.
• Turn the salmon over in the frying pan and remove the skin using a set of tongs and discard.
• Now break up the salmon in the pan using the back of a fork.
• Stir in the 3 tbsp cream, then add the cooked spaghetti and spiralized courgette to the pan along with a splash of the cooking water.
• Use a set of tongs to toss the spaghetti in the sauce, distributing the pieces of salmon amongst the pasta.
• Add more pasta cooking water if you want to loosen up the sauce a little further (optional).
• Divide the pasta between bowls and top with a little grated parmesan, black pepper and a sprinkling of fresh basil leaves.
