Smoked Salmon, Leek and Lemon Thyme Pasta

We love lox, and our sustainably harvested Sockeye Salmon is the perfect species for preparing this treat. Adapted from a recipe by Kate Murdoch in "Simply Food", November 2007.

Ingredients
1 leek, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons lemon thyme leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons salted capers, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup sour cream
1 pound penne pasta
Sea salt and organic black pepper to taste
Preparation
1.  Cook penne in a large saucepan of salted boiling water according to packet instructions or until al dente.
2.  Meanwhile, heat a splash of olive oil in a small frying pan over high heat. Add capers and cook for 2-3 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Remove from heat, keeping remaining oil in pan.
3.  Reduce heat to medium then add leek and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring regularly to prevent from browning. Add lemon thyme, cook for one minute and remove from heat.
4.  Drain penne and return to pan. Stir in the leek mixture, smoked salmon, salt, pepper, and sour cream. Serve topped with capers and a few sprigs of thyme.
