Years ago mid-week restaurant dinners and a movie were a regular treat. Fast forward by one wedding and three babies later and our wings have truly been clipped! These days a nice glass of wine and a quick dinner that doesn’t create a sink full of dishes is my idea of a treat.  This Creamy Smoked Mackerel Pasta dish is exactly like a pasta dish I used to love from the long-gone Cafe Bar Deli on George’s Street in Dublin. It’s simple, easy and goes down great with a glass of white wine.

Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add a small amount of salt. Add the spaghetti.
  2. Place a frying pan on a medium heat, add the butter. Cook the onion gently until softened and golden.
  3. Flake the smoked mackerel, removing any bones. Add to the onion. Stir.
  4. Add the frozen peas to the pan. Stir in the creme fraiche. Reduce the heat to simmer. Allow to cook but if reducing too fast, remove from the heat and add a little milk.
  5. When the pasta is cooked, drain leaving a small amount of cooking liquid. Add the creamy mixture, stir gently to mix. Season to taste.
  6. Serve up, sprinkle with parmesan, pour a large glass of wine and enjoy.

  1. Oh god, this recipe has just everything I love in a meal. I do practically the same dish using smoked bacon cut into strips… There’s just a certain synergy between smoked meat/fish and creme fraiche. Nom nom (you really do deserve to win that prize… 🙂 )
