Lemon Pasta with Norwegian Salmon
I am sorry, I have not been able to post, for the last three days. Now that the holiday is over, I hope to catch up and start posting daily and doing all the other fun activities like visiting your blogs and linking up. I took this recipe from Chaya's Comfy Cook. I remember, when I made this and how much we loved it. I will have to make it again. Right now, we are eating leftovers but I am sure, new food is on the horizon.
Lemon Pasta with Norwegian Salmon(adapted from Salmon in Seconds)
1 salmon fillet
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh chives
salt and pepper to taste
8 ounces gluten-free pasta cooked according to package instructions
1 ounce goat cheese
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
In a large nonstick pan, heat olive oil on medium high heat. When oil shimmers, add salmon and cook for 4 minutes. Flip salmon and add garlic, rice vinegar, chives, lemon juice and zest and a pinch of salt and pepper to salmon fillet. Cook 4 more minutes and remove salmon from the pan.
Add olive oil, tomatoes, and parsley to pan with 1 tablespoon of pasta water.
Boil pasta in salted water for 6 minutes or until al dente. Drain pasta and add to the pan with goat cheese. Toss gently until cheese has melted. Add salmon pieces to pasta and season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.
Eat and enjoy.
