Salmon primavera spaghetti

15 minutes (15 minutes)
Serves 4

Serves 4  

See recipe for Serves 2 here   

  • 1 cup firmly packed parsley leaves
  • 3 green shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon baby capers, drained
  • 2 teaspoons lemon rind
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 large avocado, halved
  • 4 x 120g skinless salmon fillets
  • 200g wholemeal spaghetti
  • ¼ cup sliced green olives
  • 60g baby rocket leaves
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted
  1. Process parsley, shallots, capers, lemon rind and juice in a food processor until finely chopped. Add half the avocado and pulse to form a paste.
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add salmon. Cook for 3 minutes. Turn and cook for a further 3 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Remove and flake into large pieces.
  3. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti in a large saucepan of boiling water following packet directions. Reserve ½ cup pasta water, then drain.
  4. Transfer spaghetti and reserved pasta water to a medium bowl. Add flaked salmon, avocado mixture, olives and rocket leaves. Season with freshly ground pepper and toss gently to combine.
  5. Divide into 4 serving bowls. Top with remaining thinly sliced avocado. Sprinkle with pine nuts.

Tip

  • Salmon can be replaced with 480g skinless chicken breast fillets, if preferred. Cook chicken in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat for about 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through, then slice thinly. Or, for a shortcut, skip step 2 and stir through 450g shredded, skinless cooked chicken breast in step 4.
