Dilled Salmon & Pasta2012-07-08
Here’s another fantastic salmon recipe for you with a decent serving of carbs thrown in. This recipe is quick, simple and requires less then 10 minutes cooking time (depending what pasta you opt for), perfect for when you’re in a hurry.
Salmon & pasta is favorite post work out meal for me and I usually cook the pasta well before I train to prep time is down to a few minutes.
I haven’t specified in the recipe that the pasta should be wholemeal as hopefully that’s all you use anyway. However, I know some guys do occasionally treat themselves to white pasta (as in the picture, sorry, best I could find), especially for post workout meals as mentioned earlier.
8 oz pasta
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
1/4 (cup g) balsamic Vinaigrette
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
6 oz Alaskan salmon, drained
Cook the shell pasta in a big pot of boiling, salted water until just al dente; drain well and set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, add the onion, dill, balsamic Vinaigrette, and black pepper, and mix together until combined well.
Add the salmon to the Vinaigrette mixture and mix gently so the salmon does not break down too much, but separates into bite size chunks.
Add the drained pasta to the salmon/Vinaigrette mixture and toss gently.
Taste and season accordingly.
Serve immediately at room temperature or chill for 30 minutes and serve cold.
