Salmon, Dill and Caper Linguine

Salmon, Dill and Caper Linguine, pasta, spaghetti, fish, seafood, white wine, alfresco dining,

When Lindeman’s asked me to develop a recipe with the theme “Capturing Sunshine” my mind immediately turned to seafood and pasta because you can’t help but think of sunshine when you think of Mediterranean food. With the sun now making regular appearances it won’t be long before it’s warm enough to dine Alfresco, relax in the garden after work and enjoy the early evening rays of sunshine with a glass of wine.

Lindeman's Bin 95 Sauvignon BlancWith all this relaxing in the sunshine to be done you don’t want to be slaving away in the kitchen for too long after work so my Salmon, Dill and Caper Linguine is the ideal dish to make as it is so quick, easy  and delicious. I chose the Lindeman’s Bin 95 Sauvignon Blanc 2014 for my linguine and it was the perfect match. My whole family loved this meal and I even surprised myself as I’m not a fan of capers and if they arrive on a pizza in a restaurant I’m handing them out to the family, but in this dish they went so perfectly and blended so well I ate them all! Gosh next I’ll be eating blue cheese, well maybe not! The warmth of the cayenne pepper, with the slight sharpness of the capers interact so well with the zing of the dill and are all brought together in a white wine and cream sauce with just a hint of tomato – this is seriously good!

Salmon, Dill and Caper Linguine, pasta, spaghetti, fish, seafood, white wine, alfresco dining,

I’d say this dish would be great for stress-free entertaining too as you could prepare all the ingredients in advance and I’m sure it would impress any guests! I do hope you try my Salmon, Dill and Caper Linguine even if it’s not sunny – you can bring the sunshine to your table instead!

    Such a tasty pasta dish! I love capers and fish together so it’s a great idea to put them both in pasta.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Corina, I’ve never even liked capers but they went really well in this dish but when I’ve had on a pizza I’m giving them to my family!

  2. Jinger Kat

    I <3 seafood + pasta especially when it's not a very creamy sauce.
    I'm sure the capers + cayenne add a yummy spicy bite
