Pasta with smoked salmon, vodka and double cream

Last spring I spent some time in Manchester to attend a business course, probably I most enjoyed myself then to improove my English... however, I lived with two spanish girls and often there were some parties in the house. They asked me to cook a good dish of pasta and I thought to prepare a pasta with local ingredients because it is not thinkable to prepare a Carbonara without parmisan and pecorino cheese... almost for me and also if there the bacon is super. In UK there are two perfect and wonderful ingredients i.e. smoked salmon and cream so it were perfect for a delicious pasta!
  •  Pasta: whatever you prefer, I choseed "conchiglioni" because the juice is gathered better;
  • Cream... double cream! It is more tasty and in Italy there is not;
  • Vodka: a glass
  • Spring Onion: 1
  • Smoked Salmon
  • salt
  • parsley
  • extravirgin olive oil
We were a lot of people so most of the ingredients were doubled.
First of all, keep the onion and peel it off

Then slice the onion and chop it

Put the chopped onion and Extra virgin olive oil in a pan
Fried the onion and remember: to cook a delicious pasta you need a lot of water... pasta has to breathe in the pot!

 In the meanwhile take the salmon

and mince tha salmon ... the knife is useless with this kind of salmon... enjoy the salmon with you hands!
 Ok now the onion is cooking; don't let become brown, it must be transparent
Add salmon and let it cook for few moments, if needs, add some hot water (this was an ugly pan)
When the salmon is ok, add a glass of vodka
and let it evaporate
Now is the creamy moment!!! I adore this!
Add it in the pan
In the meanwhile put the pasta to boil, remember to add an handfull of caurse salt and wait until it keep to boil.
Occasionally remember to stir the pasta... pay attention at the cooking time... it's very very important... taste it after 8 minutes and then every1-2 minutes..
Now add the parsley

Mix it and switch off the gas machine.
When the pasta is ready drain it and add it to the pasta.

 Taaaa daaaa!!! Enjoy your easy, genuine (local ingredients) and fast meal!
Remember; where ever you are, if you want to cook a good dish of pasta, you must use local fresh ingredients!

P.S. sorry for the low pictures' quality but I had only my smartphone :)
