Spaghettini with Salmon

This is a recipe I have to study while I was taking an Italian language class. It was a lesson in Italian imperative tense. I tried the recipe afterwards and I liked it a lot. I modified it by adding green beans and red pepper for color and texture. It is easy, delicious and a good balanced meal in one bowl.

Salmon – 7 oz
Spaghettini [9 mins]- 8 oz
String Beans – half cup
Red Pepper - 1 big - sliced
Flat leave parsley - 3 tbsp - chopped
Tomatoes - 3 - cut into wedges
Garlic - 2 - chopped
Olive oil - 2 tsp

1- Boiled spaghettini in salted boiling water. Add string beans 6 mins into cooking the pasta.
2- Pan fried salmon on lightly oiled pan - high heat for 3 mins and then low on 2. Turn the fish and do the same on the other side. Salt and pepper the fish slightly.
3- While cooking the fish, put red pepper on the side of the fish to caramelize the pepper.
4- Add in the tomatoes after turning over the fish. Sprinkle garlic on top of tomatoes and peppers. Slightly salt the vegetables.
5- Toss the fish to break it up and gently stir it to make a sauce. The spaghettini should be ready to be drained and tossed into the salmon tomato sauce.
6- Turn off heat, add in parsley, toss and serve.

Serves 2 {cooking time about 30 mins }
