Budget creamy salmon pasta

30 minutes


  • 75g of fish paste, 32p
  • 140g of pasta, 11p (39p/500g)
  • 1/2 onion, 6p (11p each)
  • 100g of natural yoghurt, 9p (45p/500g)
  • 1 small red chilli, home grown
  • 1 bunch of flat-leaf parsley, home grown
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 4p (60p/250ml)
  • 1 dash of oil, optional


First, bring a pot of water to the boil in a medium saucepan, and add the pasta. Reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for 8-10 minutes
Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the onion, and very finely chop the chilli and parsley. Add to a frying pan with the lemon juice and oil, and cook on a medium heat to soften the onion
When the pasta is cooked, remove from the heat and drain. Quickly stir the yoghurt and fish paste into the onions to warm through
Tip the pasta into the pan, coat with the sauce, and serve. Garnish with extra parsley and lemon juice if desired
