Pasta with Salmon and Spinach

Are you eating fish regularly as recommended? Well, we try to but must admit that we don’t get as often as we would like. When we ask others, they say the same and also says that it is too expensive or they have trouble finding quick and easy recipes. This we are about to change with this 30 minute-guest-worthy pasta dish with spinach and salmon.

We will, in time, make many more easy dishes with fish and shellfish and you are very welcome to leave a comment with suggestions or link to great recipes 🙂 Hope that you will love the dish as much as we do!

 

Ingredients (2 servings)

2 pieces salmon

2 cups pasta

1/2 pound spinach

1 red chili, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 shallots, chopped

1/2 cup peas

3/4 cup cream

1/2 lemon, juice

1/8 cup parmesan, grated

Salt

Pepper

 

Clean the salmon in cold water and try it with paper towel. Season with salt and pepper and fry the skin side of the salmon on a dry pan until golden and crisp (4-5 minutes). Cover in tinfoil and bake in the oven at 350F for 15-20 minutes.

While baking the salmon you can make the rest of the dish. Cook the pasta as recommended on the package and let drip of in a colander.

Bring cream, lemon juice, garlic, chili and shallots to a boil and cook for 5-7 minutes at medium heat before adding the spinach. Cook until all the spinach has “collapsed” and season with salt and pepper. Then add the peas and the drained pasta. Stir to combine.

Take the salmon out of the oven after the recommended time. Remove the skin a pulled the meat into small pieces. Add the pulled salmon pieces to the pasta and spinach and stir gently to combine. If you stir to much you might ruin the salmon pieces and the dish will appear less delicious.

Arrange on a beautiful plate and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. Serve with a good piece of bread and a cold glass of white wine 🙂
