Clodagh McKenna's easy green spaghetti recipe using ingredients of creamy smoked trout, pea, mint, asparagus and leeks


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 leek, trimmed, washed, thinly sliced
  • 12 asparagus spears, woody ends trimmed, cut into 5cm lengths
  • 120g frozen peas
  • 120ml double cream
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 175g hot smoked trout, skin removed, flaked
  • 500g spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over low heat. Stir in the leeks and cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until soft. Next add the asparagus and peas, and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Pour in the cream, flaked smoked trout, lemon juice and zest. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Season Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

2. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in a large saucepan of boiling salted water. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and set side, keeping back a few tablespoons of the pasta cooking water, which you can use to stop the pasta from sticking together.

3. Add the pasta, reserved cooking liquid and mint to the smoked trout mixture and stir until well combined.
