Slow cooked onion and smoked salmon spaghetti


Melt the butter with the oil and the anchovies in a large pan on low heat. Add the onions, bay leaf and thyme and season with salt and pepper. Cook on a low heat for another 45 minutes. Stir regularly until the onions are very soft and translucent.

Bring a large pot of salt water to the boil. Cook spaghetti for 7 minutes. Strain the pasta once cooked.

Remove the bay leaf from the cooked onions and stir in the crème fraiche over a medium heat. Once thickened slightly, turn the heat off and add the spaghetti and Parmesan and toss very well. Serve with a garnish of smoked salmon and wedge of lemon.
