Tuscan Style Salmon

It’s the day after Thanksgiving 2020 and I am in need of something to eat that’s a bit lighter than the usual leftover fare.

I went to Whole Foods early this morning to beat the rush of people looking to buy overpriced Christmas trees and did some shopping. Without a list…terrible idea.

I know that most people would get lots of stuff they don’t need when they shop without a list but for me, I’m the opposite: I become paralyzed by the fear of buying something I didn’t actually need and I end up with almost nothing. Well, in full disclosure, I did buy a box of organic icecream bars (oh Whole Foods, I cannot resist you even when my lactose intolerance says I should).

The most practical thing I bought was a pound of salmon, part of which I will use in this recipe.

The inspiration for this meal came from a random Pinterest post that I saw a long time ago (that I can no longer find). I decided that I needed to use my close to being half dead sweet angel tomatoes (who names things, seriously?) and this recipe is a good way to use some wrinkly and sad tomatoes.

TUSCAN STYLE SALMON

Ingredients:

  • A serving of salmon
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
  • A serving of angel hair pasta
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 bunch (or less) of spinach
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of heavy cream
  • Salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning to taste

1. Boil a pot of water for the pasta. Cool according to package directions, making sure the pasta is done at the same time as the sauce. Angel hair pasta cooks in only 3 minutes, so if you’re using angel hair, boil the water now but cook the pasta last.

2. Chop onion and garlic. Cook in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle with a little salt. Cook until softened.

3. Add in fish and a splash of water. Season fish with salt and pepper and cover to steam.

4. Chop tomatoes and add to pot.

5. Rinse and chop spinach. Add to pot, season with salt, pepper, and dried herbs and toss to coat. Allow everything to cook for 2-3 minutes, covered.

5. Grate Parmesan cheese. Add cheese and cream to pot; stir in to combine. Cover and cook until fish is done.

6. Cook pasta. Serve fish mixture over pasta.
