Quick Pasta with Salmon and Tomatoes in Cream Sauce


This is my favorite pasta dish made with fresh salmon and tomatoes in a cream sauce. If you want to reduce the calories, you can use milk for part of the cream, but believe me, with cream it is to die for!

  • 1 (16 ounce) package spaghetti

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 10 ounces salmon fillet, cut into cubes

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 pound tomatoes, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 1 pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.

  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat while spaghetti is cooking and cook salmon and garlic until salmon is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and basil, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 3 minutes. Pour in cream and simmer over low heat until flavors are well combined and salmon is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve sauce over cooked pasta.
