Dilled Salmon & Pasta

2012-07-08

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.

Ingredients

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

Method

Step 1

Cook the shell pasta in a big pot of boiling, salted water until just al dente; drain well and set aside to cool.

Step 2

In a large bowl, add the onion, dill, balsamic Vinaigrette, and black pepper, and mix together until combined well.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Add the drained pasta to the salmon/Vinaigrette mixture and toss gently.

Step 5

Taste and season accordingly.

Step 6

Serve immediately at room temperature or chill for 30 minutes and serve cold.
