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.
