Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Boil a kettle
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat
Meanwhile, chop the sugar snap peas in half, roughly
Once the pan is hot, add the roasted garlic paste, halved sugar snap peas and smoked basa with a generous pinch of black pepper and cook, covered, for 3 min on each side
Tip: Your fish is cooked when it turns opaque and flakes easily
Whilst your fish is cooking, add the quick cook spaghetti to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat
Cook the spaghetti for 3-4 min or until cooked with a slight bite, then drain and keep to one side, reserving a cup of the starchy pasta water
Drizzle some olive oil through the spaghetti and give it a good mix up (this stops the pasta from sticking together)
Once the fish is cooked, break it apart into bite-sized pieces with a wooden spoon and add the soft cheese and juice of 1/2  lemon
Cut the remaining lemon into wedges
Add the drained spaghetti to the pan and give everything a good mix up - this is your smoked fish & creamy lemon spaghetti
Tip: Add a splash of the reserved starchy cooking water if the pasta is looking a little dry
Set the smoked fish & creamy lemon spaghetti on the table, ready to share
Garnish with the capers and let everyone dig in
