Fast and Delicious Creamy Salmon Pasta Sauce

12 teaspoon sambal oelek
200 ml cream (whole milk might work too)
2 whole red onions or 1 leek, plant
3 slices smoked salmon
1 tablespoon butter or 1 tablespoon olive oil
12 cup brandy (e.g. Cognac, Calvados, Grand Marnier.... or Sherry) (optional)
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste


Cut the onions in rings (or slice the leek in small rings). Cut - or rip apart with your fingers - the smoked salmon in smaller pieces. Size does not matter, I like it chunky :). Heat the butter or olive oil in a saucepan and bake the onions/leek until they're golden-brown (add garlic if desired). Pour cream, sambal oelek and tomato puree in the saucepan and keep stirring for 2 minutes. Add the alcohol to the saucepan (optional). (I usually add on sight and use more than 1 cup, but not all people like liquor the way I do). Stir for 1/2 minute. Add salmon and stir for 1 more minute. Done! Prepare pasta according to description on package. Pour sauce over pasta, decorate with fresh herbs and serve with a glass of white wine.
