Method: 

Cook pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, heat oil and butter in a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Sauté shallots 2 to 3 minutes until softened. Add white wine and simmer until reduced by half, another 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat, add half and half and peas and gently simmer 2 to 3 minutes more before adding salmon and dill. Heat through and let sauce thicken slightly. Drain pasta and toss in pan with sauce to coat. Season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Serve immediately.
