Creamy sun-dried tomato salmon pasta – A nourishing seafood dish ready in under 20 minutes and perfect for busy nights.

Directions

1. Cook pasta according to package instructions, until al dente. Drain, reserving some pasta water and set aside. 

2. Lightly season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. In a large non stick pan on medium heat, sear salmon fillets in 2 tablespoons oil, 2 – 3 minutes on each side. Remove salmon from the pan and set aside.

3. In the same skillet add 2 tablespoons oil reserved from the sun-dried tomatoes jar, saute onion, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, paprika, red chili pepper flakes and Italian seasoning for 1 minute until garlic is fragrant.

4. Add vegetable stock to deglaze the skillet and bring to a gentle simmer. Add half and half to the skillet and stir until a creamy sauce forms. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

5. Remove the sauce from heat. Stir in cooked pasta and mix well. Add a bit of pasta water to dilute the sauce if it’s too thick.

6. Add salmon back to the skillet over pasta and reheat for a few minutes. Sprinkle with fresh basil and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Recipe notes: Half and half is made from equal parts light cream and milk. You can use half light cream and half 2% milk, in place of half and half. Alternatively, you can use all light cream or heavy cream.
