  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Add garlic and caper berries and cook for 1 minute. Add cream, wine, parsley and lemon zest and bring to a gentle simmer. Season with salt and pepper. Turn down heat and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  4. Peel salmon skins off, then break up salmon into large pieces and place on top of pasta.
