Angel Hair w/Smoked Salmon and Cream (D, TNT)
Source: Chef2chef
Serves: 2

6 ounces angel hair pasta
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1-1/2 tbsp. capers, drained
1 tsp. lemon peel, grated
6 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced
Sea salt
Pepper, freshly cracked, for serving

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until just tender. Drain well and return to same pot.

Combine the heavy cream, milk, dill, onions, capers, and lemon peel in heavy small saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat and simmer until sauce thickens slightly.

Add sauce to pasta, and toss to coat. Add the smoked salmon and toss to combine. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper and serve at once.

Poster's Notes:
I made this the other night for supper when unexpected guests arrived.

It was really scrumptious. I didn't have heavy cream, so I substituted fat-free half and half. So here's another use for frozen citrus peel. To make the sauce for 4 servings, I didn't double the milk and cream but used 3/4 cup of each one and kept the capers at 1-1/2 tsp.
