Salmon & Spinach Cream Pasta

My husband and I love pasta. I had this nice looking salmon which we bought from Costco so I decided to make salmon cream pasta with it. It is just salmon, spinach and cream. So simple but rich and tasty.

Salmon & Spinach Cream Pasta (for about 2 people)

Spaghetti  (about 1/2 pound)
Salmon (about 0.3 pound)
Baby Spinach 1 package (170g, 6OZ)
Heavy Cream  1 small package
Nutmeg   about 1 tea spoon
Salt and Pepper for taste
Olive Oil  1 tea spoon
Butter       1 tea spoon

1, First, cut salmon into small bite size pieces. If you are using regular spinach, also cut spinach into small pieces.

2, Bring water to boil and cook spaghetti.

3, In a frying pan, add butter and olive oil and saute salmon.

4, Add spinach and saute.

5, Add nutmeg, salt and pepper. Then add heavy cream. Bring to boil.

6, When spaghetti is cooked, drain and add to the frying pan and mix.

7, Serve.

This is such a simple and quick pasta dish but it is so yummy. You can eat lots of spinach this way also. Though it might be quite high in calorie, it is quite rich so I don't think you eat lot of them so it is OK. Everything in moderation.

This salmon we got from Costo was really good quality. We also broiled and ate them with soy sauce and sesame oil with scallion and it was really good. Salmon is very convenient ingredients. I can find them in any supermarket and it is not too expensive and there are so many different ways to eat. Though we normally eat in a very very simple way.

Maybe I should learn more salmon dish recipes but when fishes are really fresh, I like eating them in a very simple way such as just with say sauce and white rice :-)
