Smoked Salmon Pasta in Garlic Cream Sauce
Fettuccine in a garlic cream sauce topped with smoked salmon, green onions, tomatoes, and capers. Finished with lemon zest and shaved parmesan cheese. Inspired by the restaurant Pizza Nova in San Diego, California.
Yields: 2-3 servings
-8 ounces fettuccine noodles
-2 tablespoons butter
-1 1/2 cups half and half cream
-3 cloves garlic, minced
-8 ounces smoked salmon, flaked
-2/3 cup green onions, sliced on the bias
-2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
-2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained
-shaved parmesan cheese
-1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
-sea salt and pepper to taste
-Put a pot of water to boil over high heat. Salt generously. Cook fettuccine al dente according to the package directions. Drain.
-While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the cream, reduce heat to medium-low, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer and reduce, stirring often,
while the pasta is cooking.
-When the pasta is drained, toss it with the garlic cream sauce. Distribute the fettuccine evenly in pasta bowls. Top each bowl of pasta with generous amounts of smoked salmon, green onions, and tomatoes. Finish with capers, parmesan cheese and
lemon zest on each. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve promptly. http://bit.ly/2WmXsOs
Salmon BLT Sandwiches with Spicy Garlic Mayo
Pan-seared salmon with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and spicy garlic mayo, all on a ciabatta bread bun.
Yields: 4 sandwiches
-4 (3-4 ounce) wild Alaska salmon fillets, pin bones and skin removed
-salt and pepper
-8 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and drained
-8 tomato slices
-4 lettuce leaves
-4 sandwich rolls, sliced in half (I used ciabatta)
For the Spicy Garlic Mayo:
-¼ cup mayonnaise
-1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
-1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika
-Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season the salmon fillets generously with salt and pepper. Sear the fillets in the hot pan until golden and cooked medium-medium well, about 3 minutes per side. Allow salmon to rest while you prepare the
toppings and mayo.
-For the mayo: To a small bowl, add the mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, cayenne, and paprika. Stir to combine.
-To assemble the sandwiches: Slather the top buns with a generous amount of the spicy garlic mayo. Place the salmon on the bottom bun, followed by 2 bacon slices, 1 lettuce leaf, and 2 tomato slices. Top the sandwich. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Serve promptly while the salmon is still warm. http://bit.ly/2ZP7euJ
