Easy Peasy Salmon with Pasta

A perfect dish to celebrate our home region during Lincolnshire Pea Week!

This takes minutes to prepare but is fresh and delicious, a great recipe for a midweek summer supper. BigFish Garden Mint salmon goes particularly well with the peas but do feel free to experiment with our other salmon marinade flavours.
