Salmon Spaghetti


So I recently got a request for something a little healthier (i guess pasta drenched in Ceaser dressing isn't that good for you ;) I love ya Tay!

I saw this on the Food Network and we have had it multiple times since. I never was very into Salmon, since it is such a strong flavor, but this recipe along with a few others have brought fish back into my life!

Ingredients:
- Whole Grain Spaghetti
- 2 cloves garlic
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Salt
- Pepper
- Salmon Fillets
- 1 tbls Basil Leaves
- 1 Zested Lemon
- 2 tbls Lemon Juice
- Spinach Leaves (Optional- its almost better as just a salad on the side)

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8-10 mins or until al dente; drain. Transfer pasta to a large bowl and add garlic, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to combine

Meanwhile, warm olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Season the Salmon with salt and pepper. Add fish to pan and cook through (about 5 mins per side)

Add basil and lemon juice to spaghetti and toss to combine. For one serving- Place spinach on bowl and top with spaghetti. Place 1 piece of salmon on pasta and top with lemon zest. Serve Immediately w/ Spinach if you want it!

  5. Great combo, sometimes just a little noodling is what the salmon needs.
