What a great recipe to have in your database. Easy salmon and pasta weeknight dinner idea with restaurant quality. Delicate angel hair pasta with salmon is combined with a wonderful paprika wine sauce. Healthy and entertaining worthy.
No matter which shape you prefer, mixing pasta and fresh, seasonal vegetables makes for a healthy, delicious meal. For my Salmon and pasta dinner, I chose delicate angel hair pasta to compliment fresh chopped tomatoes from my garden and sauteed sweet yellow bell pepper. I’ve been hoarding a few Vidalia onions for special dishes that welcome their subtle and mild sweetness. The sauce of white wine, lemon, paprika and capers complimented the chunks of grilled salmon and brought everything together for this fabulous and easy salmon dinner recipe.
All this salmon meal needs is a gorgeous green salad. Like this Louisiana Sunburst Salad.
Making this Salmon Pasta Recipe
- This salmon pasta starts with grilled salmon which is simply seasoned with salt. Grill it until it’s just starting to flake. Remove from grill, tent with foil and make the paprika wine sauce. Cook the angel hair pasta and complete the meal.
- Flake the salmon into fairly large chunks, remembering the salmon will break up a little bit more when stirring into the pasta.
- In a pasta serving bowl, combine the pasta and paprika wine sauce. Gently stir and then add the chunked salmon. Disperse the salmon throughout, making sure it’s coated with that beautiful sauce.
- For a little extra pizzaz, I like to hit it with a few sprinkles of red pepper flakes.
