Ingredients

  • 4 (4 ounce) fillets salmon

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • ½ cup roasted red bell peppers

  • cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 2 teaspoons minced jalapeno peppers

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1 (8 ounce) package angel hair pasta

Directions

  1. In an 8 inch baking dish, arrange filets in a single layer. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Tightly cover dish with foil. Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Cook until fish is opaque, but still moist looking in thickest part, 12 to 14 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a blender, smoothly puree red peppers, parmesan, cornstarch, chili, and garlic. Add cilantro and chicken broth; whirl to blend.

  3. Pour pepper mixture into a 10 inch frying pan. Stir over high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to keep warm.

  4. Cook pasta in 3 quarts boiling water until tender to bite, about 7 minutes. Drain, and return to pan.

  5. Stir juices from the baked salmon into red pepper sauce. Mix 1 1/2 cups sauce with pasta. Spoon pasta onto plates. Top with fish, and drizzle with remaining sauce. Serve.
