Smoked Salmon Vermicelli

Submitted by: BREEHARDY

Introduction

This pasta has only a few ingredients, but together they make an incredibly satisfying supper. The dish requires nothing more than a big green salad as accompaniment.

Ingredients

    2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1 small onion, cut into half-moons
    1 cup whipping cream
    Zest and juice of 1 lemon
    About 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
    About 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
    8 ounces whole grain spaghetti noodles
    8 ounces hot- or cold-smoked salmon, cut into pieces
    1/2 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Directions

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, in a large, high-sided frying pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and cook, stirring, until onion is soft but not browned, about 3 minutes. Stir in cream, lemon zest and juice, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until mixture has thickened slightly, 4 to 5 minutes.

2. Add pasta to water and cook according to package instructions. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking water.

3. Add salmon to cream mixture and stir to combine. Pour pasta into frying pan with salmon-cream mixture and toss to coat, adding some of the cooking water as needed to moisten pasta. Add parsley and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • I used milk instead of cream to reduce the calories and fat. Instead I used 1 tsp of flour (.028 cup = 12.7 calories) with water to thicken the sauce. Taste was very good. Very satisfying and was very happy to drop the calories to 375.5 per serving. - 9/12/12
