Yum! This dish was thrown together by none other than my sister: Kristine. It’s a pasta dish with salmon and it’s perfect for a small dinner party on a budget. How? If there’s salmon involved? Well that’s because while a decent piece of salmon can be on the pricey side there,the majority of the dish is pasta and that’s cheap.
Kristine has graciously allowed me to share her recipe
WHAT YOU NEED:
Frozen salmon- 2 portions
Linguine Pasta- 1 pckg
Alfredo sauce- 14 oz-Can buy or make your own
1 tbsp. Tomato sauce (for colouring)
Chinese cabbage (pak choi)- 3 leaves chopped
Thyme- a pinch
White wine- 4 oz
Garlic- 5 cloves
Onion- 1 ½ medium sliced and diced
Salt- 1 tbsp
No salt seasoning
Parmesan cheese (pre-grated)
WHAT TO DO:
1) Cut salmon into chunks and marinate using 1 garlic clove, a few pieces of onion, a dash of white wine, black pepper, salt-free seasoning, and garlic powder.
2) Mix well with tongs to make sure salmon is well covered. Let sit for at least 10-15 minutes ( longer if you wish). I forgot to put lemon juice on salmon so you can add that on. It didn’t really matter…still tasted awesome.- Camille’s note: Put on the lemon juice!
3) Boil water for pasta, adding salt, 2 garlic cloves, and onion slices. Add pasta, oil and thyme when water boils and let cook- uncovered. Strain and await salmon.
4) Salmon- In a pan put some olive oil and onion and garlic pieces and let brown. Then add marinated salmon and let cook. Should take about 10 minutes if so long. Pour in the half cup (4 oz) white wine and Alfredo sauce then enough tomato sauce to colour the Alfredo sauce pink. Add pak choy and let simmer on very low heat and covered for about 15 minutes and that’s that. Salmon Alfredo Linguine complete.
5)Plate with some Parmesan cheese on top and enjoy. Buen Apetito.
This looks great, thanks Kris.I can see it being eaten by candle light with a nice glass of white wine(a cheap one from the supermarket) and good friends to enjoy it with. I’m going to try this tomorrow!
Have an awesome day!
