    Serves: 4 

    • 250g spaghetti
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 4 (125g) salmon fillets
    • pinch salt and pepper, to taste
    • 3 roma tomatoes, diced
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
    • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
    2. Heat olive oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Place onion and garlic in the frypan in an even layer then lay salmon fillets on top. Place a lid on the frypan and cook the salmon until it flakes easily and the onions are tender. Flake all of the salmon. Season with salt and pepper then reduce the heat to medium. Toss the spaghetti, tomatoes and basil with the salmon and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Stir in some of the pasta water if the pasta becomes dry.

    Great last minute recipe. I used canned salmon, as it's all I had, and I was having one of those "what am I making for dinner?!!" moments, searched salmon and pasta and lo and behold this one came up. I added zuchini. It was excellent!  -  05 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Delicious! We used whole wheat pasta, and tossed in some shrimp. Thanks for sharing!  -  21 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
