Creamy Honey Salmon Pasta
To kick start the week of Presto Pasta, my first dish is of course..pasta! Here, I have used honey to marinate the salmon and I'm surprised that it gave a bit of the sweet but not overly sweet taste. It reminded me of my maple smoked salmon salad in Marion Bay!
I love how creamy yet non-sinful this dish is. Salmon makes me feel good anytime!
Creamy Flaked Salmon Pasta (Serves 4)
1 fresh salmon portion (200+grams)
pinch of cumin
1 tsp of honey
250 grams of spaghetti
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of flour
1 cup of skim milk
1 tablespoon of honey
1 cup of frozen peas
1 cup of fresh baby spinach
1) Marinate salmon with honey, cumin and cracked pepper/salt. Heat grill to very hot. Drizzle olive oil over salmon. Grill salmon till done. Set aside. Flaked it when it cooled.
2) Mean while cook pasta in pot of boiling hot water. Drain.
3) Melt butter in deep pan. Add flour and cook till golden brown. Slowly add milk and whisk it till it becomes thick. Add honey and stir well. Add peas and spinach and cook till done. Add abit more stock or milk of it appears too little or dry. Toss pasta and flaked salmon through. Season if needed. Serve!
