I'm lucky enough to have a family who likes fish, even the girls like it (quote this Tuesday: Daddy: What shall we make for dinner?? Lily: FISH!!). So I tried this absolutely yummie-looking salmon pasta from the pasta cook book I picked up from the library:
|Not my picture, but it looks like that! (Source)|
1 medium onion, chopped (I used a red onion)
1 T butter
1-1/2 c cream
1/2 lb salmon, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
fresh dill, chopped (or substitute fried dill or marjoram)
Bring water to a rolling boil and add pasta. Melt butter in large skillet until foaming and add onion. Reduce heat and cook onion until soft and only slightly browned. Add cream and stir while reducing (make sure the cream does not boil or it will separate and curdle). When the sauce has reached the desired creaminess, add salmon and heath through. When pasta is al dente, drain and toss with sauce. Add dill and mix well. Serve with freshly-grated parmesan.
People, it was so yummie and received praise from the entire family!
As a variation from the original recipe, you can use the cream sauce as a base and add cooked chicken with thyme or basil, or as a vegetarian, add chopped broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and mushroom (definitely trying that one as well!).
If you're trying more variations, please let me know how it turned out!
