Don’t your kids like fish? This recipe is a fantastic way to get the family to eat fish because the dish is a real delicacy. Perfect in taste and also a great base, you can add additional ingredients such as hot sauce, mushrooms, prawns and peppers to create your own unique recipe.

What do we need to make salmon pasta?

  • Salmon – Use salmon with or without the skin (the skin is easy to remove during cooking).
  • Pasta – Use your favorite pasta shape.
  • Pasata is a medium thick sauce made from 100% tomatoes. If you can’t buy it, you can substitute an equal amount of finely chopped or crushed tinned tomatoes – you’ll just need to simmer the sauce a few minutes longer. Passata sauce is also the same as tomato purée, it can be with the addition of onions, garlic, basil, salt and pepper, or in its pure form.
  • Tomato paste.

PRO TIP: Be sure to leave a glass of water when draining the pasta. Pasta water can be added to the finished dish to dilute the sauce to your liking.

To prepare the dish, you need to fry the fish (until golden brown), onions, and garlic. Add passata sauce, tomato paste, spices, and cream. Boil the sauce for a few minutes, combining it with the fish and add the pasta. And your dinner is ready – a detailed recipe with a photo is given below.

This dish goes perfectly with a Greek salad, but if you don’t have the inspiration to cook it, then a simple crisp leaf salad will also complement the dinner well.
