This Salmon Pasta is lifted with some simple yet fresh ingredients from my garden and makes a light but filling quick meal!

I am still rocking some relatively light meals that are a little light on the meat front after eating bucket loads of the stuff in the last couple of weeks. We have spent the last few days without any electricity with a scheduled power outage in our village from 8am till 4pm, fortunately this allowed us to really get the garden straight and do a load of chores that we have been putting off. We have also been out shopping far more than usual, primarily in the aim of not getting round to those chores I just mentioned. On our journeys we happened upon some awesome salmon and just had to buy it. This salmon pasta dish is a but of a twist on a dish that I tend to make with canned salmon but it really does sing when paired with fresh salmon.

I really love this time of year, most of the remaining ingredients for this great salmon pasta dish are all courtesy of months of hard work. Out tomatoes, herbs, and onions are all looking pretty spot on this year, the herb success is more than a little unusual, we have been doing this for 7 years and always fail at growing herbs… This year we have loads of them, no idea why, we have done nothing different, the conditions have largely been the same as usual and I have not made an sacrifices, so I am just putting it down to Mother Nature being the usual fickle witch!

Not only is the produce all looking pretty damn foxy outside we are approaching the height of summer which means our workload really does scale back. Most of our early crops are out of the ground and set aside for later use. The long hot and dry days mean that the grass is not growing which means it no longer takes 6 hours to mow the garden. All we now need to do is water every couple of days, harvest a few bits and pieces and enjoy the summer and we have lots planned and I am looking forward to getting out into the Hungarian Countryside. May I be so bold to suggest that you hit me up on that thereย Instagram thingywatsit, I do not just post food over there so if you want a wee slice of Hungarian summer hop on over and follow me!

Ingredients

  • 300 g Salmon Fillet. Skinned Boned and cut into batons about 3mm by 5cm long.
  • 3 Tbsp Bread Crumbs.
  • 5 Tbsp Olive Oil.
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice.
  • 1 Shallot. Finely Diced.
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Parsley. Finely Chopped.
  • 2 Spring Onions. Cut into 5cm lengths and then sliced as finely as you can.
  • 125 g Plum Tomatoes. If you can not get plum find something fleshy rather than something with loads of seed, deseed and cut into a fine dice.
  • 125 g Flat Pasta. I use Mafaldine but Fettuccine would work just as well.
  • Salt and Pepper to taste.
  • 20 Fresh Basil Leaves. Rolled in your hand and then finely sliced.

Instructions

  1. Before you put on your pasta water, marinade the salmon with the shallot, parsley, 1 tbsp of olive oil and 1 Tbsp of lemon juice.
  2. Cook your pasta as per instructions.
  3. You will need to do a little calculation here as cooking off the salmon will take around 2-3 minutes and you do not want nasty dry salmon.
  4. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a pan over a medium high heat and toast off the bread crumbs, when golden set aside on a piece of kitchen towel.
  5. Clean out the pan and around 3 minutes before the pasta is ready to come out of the water add in a further 2 tablespoons of olive oil and saute the salmon and shallot mix.
  6. One minute later add in the tomatoes and the salad onions and continue to saute for a further 2 minutes until the salmon is just cooked.
  7. Drain the pasta and add it into the pan with the salmon and stir to combine.
  8. Test for seasoning adding salt and pepper as required and even a little squeeze of lemon juice if you like.
  9. Finally sprinkle over the breadcrumbs and the finely sliced basil leaves.

Recipe Notes

Given that this is a quick cooking dish be minded to get all of your ingredients prepared before you start cooking.

    I love the idea of topping your pasta with crispy breadcrumbs! Bet that adds such a lovely crunch!

      It definitely does and depending on the dish you can play with the flavours on the breadcrumbs by adding some garlic, I’ve even cooked them in the oil from canned fish when I have been cooking a canned fish recipe rather than fresh ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the lighting on these photos. And tomatoes are one of those perfect summer vegetables I love to add to many dishes. Thanks for sharing.

      Definitely Sharee, so sweet and full of flavour at this time of year and they are just warmed through in this dish so retain pretty much all of their fresh flavour.

    Brian, another phenomenal dish from your kitchen! I absolutely adore salmon and pasta paired together. This is going on my to-cook list immediately.

      Cheers chap, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

  7. We’ve been eating so much fish recently, and pasta. I need to add this to our menu!

    I love this idea. I never think to use flat pasta for anything other than baked dishes, but I’m so obsessed with this. Trying ASAP.., maybe with some east coast lobsta!!

      Me and you could fall out very quickly you know, you and your showy West Coast Lobsta make me very envious ๐Ÿ˜‰
