This tagliatelle recipe is a new favorite of my boyfriend. He loves avocado and the combination with salmon, chives and red peppers is amazing. Sometimes I make a variation with chicken instead of salmon. It’s a little bit cheaper but just as delicious. I buy my red peppers in bulk at the market when they are cheap and freeze them. They get a little bit softer this way, but they don’t loose taste. A perfect solution!

How to make tagliatelle with salmon and avocado
Cook the tagliatelle in salted water according to package directions. Bake the salmon in a frying pan with a little olive oil. Add a finely chopped onion and two cloves of crushed garlic and fry briefly. Cut the red pepper finely and add it to the mix. Cut the avocados and remove the pulp. Use a hand blender to make a nice sauce out of it. Add this together with the crème fraîche to your frying pan. Add the chives and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the tagliatelle to your sauce and stir it in. Divide among the plates and finish with a some grated Parmesan cheese.
