    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Arrange the salmon fillets in a single layer in a baking dish and sprinkle with lemon juice. Tightly cover the dish with foil. Bake at 230 degrees C until fish is opaque, but still moist-looking in thickest part about 12 to 14 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, in a blender smoothly puree red capsicum, parmesan, cornflour, chilli and garlic. Add coriander and chicken stock; pulse to blend.
    3. Pour capsicum mixture into a frying pan. Stir over high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to keep warm.
    4. Cook pasta in salted boiling water until al dente, about 5 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
    5. Stir juices from the baked salmon into red capsicum sauce. Mix 1 1/2 cups of the sauce with pasta. Spoon pasta onto plates. Top with fish and drizzle with remaining sauce. Serve.

    I made this exactly as the recipe stated but used only 2 portions of salmon with the pasta, for 2 of us as we prefer more sauce. It was excellent and is now a regular.  -  11 Sep 2011


    This is an great way to do salmon and the sauce has a good bite. I didn't serve with pasta - just on mashed potatoes and sauce over it all.  -  15 Oct 2009
