Instructions Checklist
  • 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, 9 to 12 minutes. Drain.

  • While spaghetti is cooking, season salmon with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook salmon until opaque on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  • Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the same skillet and cook onion until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 20 seconds. Pour in wine and allow to evaporate. Pour in heavy cream and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and cook until sauce has desired consistency, 3 to 5 minutes. Add salmon to the skillet and heat in the sauce.

  • Season salmon sauce with salt and pepper and serve with spaghetti.

Cook's Note:

If you are using frozen salmon, thaw before using.

It was delicious on three-cheese ravioli. I didn t have salmon so substituted bacon and mushroom. I thought it said 1 Tablespoon of tomato paste so that is what I used and it was just the right amount. Next time I will double the recipe for our family. Read More

Great recipe ... I added tomato basil pesto instead of the tomato paste and added sliced mushrooms to the sauce.. left the salmon in two large pieces which I placed on top of the pasta (fettucini) and covered with the sauce.. Will become a mainstay .. Thanks! Read More
