Roasted Salmon, and Garlic/Olive Oil Pasta

Hello everyone! For a long time I thought I did not like salmon…until recently I used to never eat it.  My husband though, has been trying to turn me on to salmon, and then I realized, its not that I didn’t like salmon, its just that the I didn’t like the way the previous salmon had been cooked! With a little roast, and a little sizzle, even me the salmon-avoider, has become a convert.


As always, not only is it super yummy, but its very easy.  My favorite kind of meal.

  • 1 salmon fillet, skin removed (approximatly 4 x 6 inches, and 1 inch thick)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • linguine noodles
  •  spinach, one bag/container
  • 2 chopped cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan
  • Oven-safe sauté pan
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Boil, and salt water.  Place linguine noodles in pot, cook as directed on box until done. Reserve one cup pasta water, set noodles aside.
  3. In a separate pan, melt the butter. Season salmon with the onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, place fish seasoned side down in the butter. Cook for 5 minutes.
  4. While the fish is cooking, season the other side of the fish using the same seasoning.
  5. Once the fish is seasoned, flip the fish, and place the pan in the oven. Cook in oven for 10-15 minutes.
  6. While the fish is cooking, in a separate pan, sauté onion, mushrooms and garlic in a little olive oil (approximately one tablespoon.)
  7. Once the vegetables are soft (about 10 minutes), add cooked pasta and stir together. (TIP: Use a pasta spoon to stir the pasta together, this way you won’t break the noodles, and will be able to separate the pasta to ensure the veggies are mixed through.)
  8. Add parmesan to the pasta, and continue to stir.  Slowly add reserved pasta water to the pasta mixture until pasta sauce is the desired consistancy. Season with the salt, and pepper.
  9. In a separate pan, sauté spinach.
  10. Serve spinach, pasta and fish together.
