Salmon Pasta Presto
IMG_0614IMG_0608
Jill had something the other night so I was a latch key husband for a night. When this happens I go grab Thai or Indian or seem to make some sort of salmon since it isn’t her favorite. So I grabbed a nice filet at the grocery and brought it home. There is a pasta dish I make sometimes that has pasta, Parmesan, peas and asparagus. It’s a nice little dish that is balanced between sweet green peas and the savory/pungent asparagus. It’s not too filling but satisfying.

I always keep frozen peas on hand and had some asparagus on deck with a few bags of near empty pasta. It’s not pretty, it’s not elegant nor fancy but this recipe makes a nice lighter dish with some good veggies and let’s salmon shine.

Ingredients:
Fresh Salmon
Frozen Peas
5-6 stalks of Asparagus
Grated Parmesean
Pasta of your choice
Kosher Salt and Pepper (I like a lot )
Milk cream or pasta water to loosen it up

Directions:
1. Preheat your oven to 350 and lightly season and oil your salmon and cook it until tender. About 15 minutes.
2. While the salmon is in the oven. Make your pasta and set aside some pasta water. Put the pasta back into the pot and lower the heat to it’s lowest level or turn it off. Stir in your vegetables and Parmesan cheese Taste and season.
3. Spoon the pasta into a bowl and break up the salmon and put it on top. It’s that easy.
