Spaghetti con Salmone e Gamberi



Doesn't that sounds so yummy :-) well it just means Spaghetti with salmon and Scampis. (Just copied the title from my book The pasta bible as it sounded so nice)
First time I had pasta was when I came here to Belgium. I am sure my generation kids in India ( oh did I says kids, my god that was indeed few decades back) well at least me then, didn't had any pasta dishes.

Ofcourse now things have changed, back in India we get pasta in all the shops.

And now to say that we have pasta dishes at least once a week. If i don't make something with pasta my daughter will ask how come you didn't make any pasta this week.
Mostly it is pastaRagu or some kind of tomatos pasta.
But now that my daughter loves salmon , I am overjoyed that I can even make pasta dishes with salmon than thinking to myself what will i make for her if i make this for us.
Ofcourse she don't eat Scampis, but no trouble she picks them out and give it to her dad.

This is what we had last sunday for lunch.
This creamy delcious rich pasta. I am sure if you make this you will fall in love with the dish as we did here at home.

Normally when some dishes ask for wine I dodn't add them often, but I have to tell you if you make this you should add the wine as the wine gives a wonderful taste to the whole pasta dish.
My tip is if you open up a bottle specially for this and you dodn't want to drink wine, then freeze them in a freezer bag and use them when a another recipe ask for wine.

Ingridients:
300 gm Salmon fillet
250 ml dry white wine
Few basil leaves ( I didn't have so i used a tbsp of dried basil)
6 ripe fat tomatoes , do use fresh ones as the tomatoes are really good in this time of the year.( skins and seeds removed and chopped)
2 tbsp tomato puree
200 ml cream + 50 ml water ( mix them together)
300 gm Spagjetti
115 gm scampis/Shrimps
Peper and salt to taste

Method:

Poach the salmon in the wine together with a bit of salt , peper and the basil leaves for 5 minutes, add the scampis just before you finish poaching the fish so that they dodn't over cook.
Don't forget when you mix the sauce with the pasta the fish will cook more and you dodn't want them to be over cooked.
Reomove the fish and the scampi using a slotted spoon.
Flake the salmon and keep it aside.

Turn up the fire high and add the tomatoe paste, boil the wine for few minutes so they are bit reduced.
Add the cream, salt and peper and the tomatoes, cook in a soft fire for 10 minutes. Add the flakes salmon and the scampis.
In the mean time cook the pasta according to the packet.
Drain and mix them to the sauce and serve them and enjoy the delicous creamy pasta.
If you have fresh basil leaves you can use them as garnish.

btw, what type of white wine do you use? I always see recipes requiring white wine but have no idea what they mean. is there a specific brand used for cooking?

Cakelaw said...

This sounds delicious! It's a funny coincidence, but I made a similar pasta recipe tonight which I will post about sometime soon, but using bowtie pasta and pumpkin and no wine. But it contained salmon and prawns and cream and tomato paste. Two great minds think alike.
