  • 14 oz tagliatelle
  • 1/2 lb salmon fillet
  • 1 large stem of leek
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup fat heavy cream (20%)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Caviar of capelin, cod or halibut for serving to taste


  1. In a large saucepan, bring water to boil. Add salt and cook tagliatelle according to the instructions on the package, stirring occasionally.
  2. While the pasta is boiling, prepare the sauce: cut salmon into small pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Finely chop leek and garlic. In a large deep frying pan fry leek and garlic with butter and salt over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Add wine and boil it off. Pour in heavy cream. When it starts boiling, add fish and cook, turning the pieces over for 3 minutes.
  5. Throw tagliatelle into a colander and arrange on heated plates. Pour in sauce with fish. Sprinkle with pepper to taste. Garnish with caviar.
