  1. Rub the salmon with the garlic and ginger pastes and lemon zest to coat. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil. 
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the salmon and fry, skin-side down, for 12-14 mins, turning halfway. Meanwhile, add the tortelloni to the boiling water for 3 mins.
  3. Drain the pasta, return to the pan, then add the lemon juice, chopped chilli, crème fraîche and three-quarters of the parsley, if using. Mix to combine, divide between bowls, top with the salmon, and scatter over the chilli slices and the remaining parsley, if using.

Chef's tip: Although an optional finishing touch in this dish, the chopped parsley adds a vibrant touch of colour to this recipe.
