salmon-and-pastaThis is a super easy salmon recipe. 


1 lb wild Alaska salmon, cut into 2-3 pieces

whole wheat thin spaghetti

 fresh asparagus

organic grape tomatoes

sliced mushrooms (canned or fresh)

sliced onion, 1/2 cup

minced garlic, 1 tbs

olive oil

How I made it:

Poach the salmon in 2 cups water (simmer covered for about 5-7 minutes).   Cook spaghetti according to instructions on the box.  Meanwhile, saute garlic and onion in olive oil until fragrant and translucent.  Add mushrooms.  About 2 minutes before the pasta is done, add the asparagus (whole or cut into pieces).  When the pasta is done, strain it.  Add the pasta and asparagus to the mushroom mixture.  Add the grape tomatoes and toss until everything is well mixed.  Plate the salmon and pasta and serve.

The results:

Yummy.  With a nice merlot and rustic italian bread, it was a healthy yet satisfying meal.
