410 calories per serving 


160 g penne rigate   2 cups
1 avocados   170 g
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   3/4 lemon
2 slices smoked salmon, chopped   28 g
2 green onions/scallions, chopped   30 g
2 tbsp pasta cooking water   30 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.


  1. To save time, the sauce preparation and pasta cooking steps should be done at the same time.
  2. Start cooking the pasta.
  3. Cut the avocado(s) in half, twist out the pit and spoon out the flesh into a bowl. Chop and mash the flesh, sprinkle with the lemon juice, then add salt and pepper. Chop the salmon and green onion(s) into small pieces, then add them to the bowl. Add the required amount of pasta cooking water.
  4. Put the drained penne into the bowl and mix well. Serve in the warmed dishes.


Parmesan is not added since the flavour of fish sauces in general does not benefit from the addition of cheese.
