12 ounces fettuccine pasta
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 medium shallots, finely diced
¼ pound cooked or smoked salmon
3 cups heavy cream
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large stockpot of salted water to boiling. Add pasta and cook 12 minutes till al dente. While pasta is boiling, melt butter in a medium-to-large sauce pan over moderate heat. Add the shallots and sauté till tender. Add the salmon and sauté another 2 -3 minutes till salmon is heated through. Empty pan reserving the shallot salmon mixture. Add heavy cream to pan and boil over high heat for 15-20 minutes to reduce and thicken till it can coat the back of a spoon. Add the salmon mixture and fresh dill. Add cooked fettuccine to sauce. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately. Garnish with more fresh dill.
