Number of Servings: 8


    2 cups baby arugula leaves
    3/4 cup basil leaves
    1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts
    2 cloves garlic, peeled
    2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
    2/3 cup grated Parmesan
    1-1/4 teaspoon salt
    1-1/4 pound salmon fillet
    1 cup dry white wine or vegetable broth
    1 pound angel hair pasta


1. Pesto: In food processor, combine arugula, basil, nuts and garlic. Process 1 minute. Gradually add oil and process until blended. Add cheese and salt; process until smooth. Set aside 1 cup for recipe. Refrigerate remainder for another use (up to 1 week).

2. Salmon and pasta: Place salmon fillet in a large nonstick skillet. Add wine and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily. Remove from poaching liquid; keep warm. Discard liquid.

3. Meanwhile, cook pasta following package directions, 3 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the water. Toss drained pasta with 1 cup pesto and 1/4 cup of the pasta water, adding more water if needed. Remove skin from salmon; discard. Flake fish into pasta.
