Farfalle with Salmon in Creamy Vodka Sauce



4 servings
  1. 1 pound farfalle pasta
  2. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  3. 1 small shallot, minced
  4. 1/2 cup vodka
  5. 2 1/4 cups heavy cream
  6. 4 ounces thinly sliced salmon (no skin) or smoked salmon, cut into thin strips
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper (use less salt if using smoked salmon)
  8. 3 large egg yolks
  9. 2 tablespoons minced chives


20 mins
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the farfalle, stirring occasionally, until al dente.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet, melt the butter. Add the shallot and cook over moderate heat until golden, about 3 minutes. Add the vodka and cook until evaporated, about 1 minute. Add 2 cups of the heavy cream and simmer over moderately high heat, stirring often until reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Stir in the salmon, season with salt and pepper and remove from heat. In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks with the remaining 1/4 cup of heavy cream.

  3. Drain the farfalle. Add it to skillet and stir well. Add the egg-yolk mixture and stir over low heat until warm and sauce is creamy, about 30 seconds. Serve with chives on top.
