Per portion: 2284 kJ / 545 kcal

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (600g)
  • 300 g spaghetti
  • 100 g crème fraiche
  • 25 ml Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
  • 200 g frozen sweet peas
  • ½ tsp. dried herbs de provance
  • Grated zest of one lemon


Preparation time: 30 mins

Preheat oven to 200C. Prepare 4 sheets of parchment paper, size 30x45 cm. Whisk soy sauce, crème fraiche, lemon zest and half the herbs in a small bowl. Bring water to boil in a large pan, season with salt generously and par-cook the spaghetti for 5 min, no longer – they will finish cooking in the oven. Drain the spaghetti, saving 100 ml of cooking water.

Mix spaghetti, saved water and crème fraiche mix in a large bowl. The starch in cooking water helps the sauce to cling better to pasta. Divide spaghetti over four parchment papers, lay a salmon on top and sprinkle the remaining herbs. Wrap the food tightly in parchment paper so no steam can escape (check YouTube videos for cooking “en papillote”). Place packets on rimmed baking sheet and cook in the oven for 12 minutes. Serve directly, opening the wrapped food tableside.
