One player this week.
It must be a slow week for everyone-I know here we are dealing with a stomach virus so I can't
blame anyone for missing yesterday~I almost did myself.
From our lovely Compulsive Writer:
Grilled Salmon and Pasta
Marinate salmon in teriyaki sauce for at least 30 minutes. Grill.
Brush asparagus lightly with olive oil, then grill till just tender.
Cut into 1-2" pieces.
During grilling, boil fettucine till a la dente.
While everything is still hot, gently toss all three together with 1
1/2 pint fresh cream and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. Season with sea salt
and a good freshly ground pepper to taste.
These are from my own computer files. Not sure where they originally came from but they both look
1 (8-ounce) package spinach fettuccine
1 (14 3/4-ounce) can red or pink salmon or 1 lb salmon filet cooked and flaked
1 cup purchased dill dip
1/2 pound fresh asparagus cooked lightly, cut into bite-sized pieces and cooled
4 medium green onions -- thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
Cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package.
Drain salmon; remove skin and bones. Flake salmon.
Toss fettuccine, 1/2 cup of the dill dip, the asparagus and onions in large
serving bowl. Top with salmon. Serve with remaining dill dip.
Yield: 4 servings.
Salmon And Asparagus Fettuccine
12 ounces dry fettuccine noodles
8 ounces fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2 inch pieces
1/2 cup butter
2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 pound cooked salmon filet, diced
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for
8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Stir asparagus into pot in the last five
minutes of cooking; drain. While pasta is cooking, heat butter and cream in
a medium saucepan over medium heat. When mixture begins to bubble, stir in
Parmesan, garlic powder, pepper and cayenne. Continue cooking until mixture
thickens, stirring occasionally. Stir in salmon and heat through. Toss pasta
and asparagus with sauce and serve immediately.
