Teriyaki Salmon Pasta
This is so easy to throw together on a weeknight - it's so simple, healthy and delicious! It uses just 4 ingredients, but I did use home-made marinade, which was leftover in the fridge from something else. You can easily make your own using a recipe like this. I would love to eat fresh salmon more often, but it's usually so expensive that I only get it as a treat. But this recipe doesn't use much, so it won't break the bank, and because it's broken up, it really goes a long way. Delicious!
Ingredients (serves 4)
200g salmon fillet
1/2 cup teriyaki marinade
200g dried fettuccine
1 head broccoli, chopped
Put salmon in an oven-proof dish and coat with marinade. Leave for at least 2 hours if possible (but it's ok if you don't have time!)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Bake salmon, uncovered, for about 20 minutes or until cooked through.
Meantime, bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add fettuccine and cook for about 10 minutes, until tender. Add broccoli in the last 4 minutes of cooking. Drain, then return to the saucepan.
Gently break up salmon and toss through the pasta and broccoli, along with any leftover marinade.
Season with salt and pepper and serve.
