Salmon with pasta

Hi,

This is a very simple recipe, it will take you no more than ½ hour. For me it is a great dish for a supper.

Ingredients:

  • 400 gr salmon
  • Pasta
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tomatoes
  • Optionally some butter

Let’s start removing the skin of salmon, as well as spines. Then cut the salmon in small cubes. Chop an onion. And finally we will cut in small pieces one tomate and grate another one, in order to do it easier cut them in half and cut in small pieces the parts without peduncle and grate the other parts until you get only with the skin. But be careful and don’t grate your fingers!

Put on the heat a pot with water and add salt. When water is boiling add olive oil in a pan and add the pasta in the pot, adding a bit of butter or olive oil. Cook the pasta the amount of time indicated in the pasta box.

Maintain the heat on the pan at minimum and add the onion and a bit of salt. Stir frequently. When pasta is at half of its cooking time, add to the pan the salmon, 2 crushed garlic cloves and the tomatoes, and again stir them frequently. When pasta is cooked add a bit of butter in the pan and let melt while you strain the pasta.

Finally add the strained pasta in the pan, stir and mix for a couple of minutes and your dish is finished.

Salmon massala

Hello,

Somedays ago I’ve tested a recipe for a quick supper, just spreading some lemon juice and massala sauce over salmon loins. The result was pretty good so I did one step forward and also prepare the massala sauce (or something close to it); so you can use this recipe as a quick way to prepare a nice salmon if you have massala sauce in your storeroom or you can use it to prepare your personal homemade massala sauce to use with some other ingredients, like a steamed rice, grilled chicken, grilled vegetables …

Ingredients (for 2 people):

Start chopping one onion. Chop a bunch of coriander. Use half kilo of tomatoes, chop one of them and grate the other ones.

Add olive oil in a pan and when it’s hot add chopped onion, salt and ground pepper. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes. Then add grated ginger (like about 1 thumb) and 4 crushed garlic cloves; stir and cook for 1 minute. Then add the grated and chopped tomatoes, the coriander, ground cumin and one chili. Stir and cook it for about 8-10 minutes.

Finally add 200 ml of cream, stir and cook it about 10 to 12 minutes until it becomes a dense sauce.

On a oven tray put a bit of olive oil, place the salmon loins with the skin down, spread over them the juice of half lemon and the massala souce. Cook in oven at 350ºF for 40 minutes.

Baked crispy salmon

Hi,

I’ve learn this recipe from Jamie Oliver’s videos, it’s an amazing recipe to prepare the salmon easily and quick with a really nice crispy touch. If you don’t like food too spicy just remove the chili from the ingredients list.

Ingredients:

  • Salmon loin (1 or 2 per person)
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 chili
  • Ginger (about the size of a thumb)
  • 5 small radishes
  • 1 lemon
  • Soy sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Thyme and rosemary

In first place we will prepare the sauce, to do so add in a blender cup one red onion cut un quarters, one chile, 3 garlice cloves, ginger (about the size of a thumb), 5 small radishes, soy sauce and the juice of a lemon. Mix it well.

Make an incision in the salmon loin, make sure the sharp is really sharp. This will allow to get the spices better distributed on the salmon and also get more uniformly cooked. Even could be nice looking. Over the salmon drop some rock salt, thyme, rosemary and olive oil. Slap with the salmon with your hands so all the spices get stuck.

On an oven tray put the mix already prepared, place the salmon loins with the skin above. Cook in the oven at 420ºF (220ºC) for 20 minutes and you have this recipe ready. Having the skin exposed will make it nicely crisp.

Fisherman’s pie

Ingredients (for 3-4 people):

  • 750 gr fish (without skin and without spines)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 glass white wine.
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 egg
  • 350-400 gr potatoes
  • Some thyme and rosemary
  • Cheese to grate (parmegiano, grana padano, old amsterdam …)

Start chopping one onion. I used cod and salmon but you can use any other fish, without spines and without skin, even use some prawns.

Peel the potatoes, cut in regular pieces and add to a pot with boling water with a bit of salt. Cook them for about 15 minutes until the are soft.

Add olive oil to a pan, when the oil is hot add chopped onion a bit of salt and move it. Add one graten carrot, and cotinue moving frequently.

When carrot and onion are well cooked, add some thyme and rosemary, the fish cut in not too small pieces, and a glass of white wine. Crush the fish with a wooden spoon and maintain cooking and moving until the wine is evaporated.

Add some salt and an egg to the already stained potatoes. Crush and mix them with a fork to form a puree.

Add the fish in an oven recipient. Over the fish distribute uniformly the puree. Grate cheese over the puree (you can use parmigiano, grana padano, old amsterdam or your favourite one).

Make some holes with a fork and put in the oven at 350º F (180º C) for 20 minutes and finally 5 minutes on the gratin position.
