Roasted Red Pepper Salmon with Angel Hair Pasta

This sauce is SO good! I think I might make the sauce and try it on chicken, too.

4 (4 ounce) fillets salmon (without skin)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons minced jalapeno peppers
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup chicken broth
1 (8 ounce) package angel hair pasta


In an 8 inch baking dish, arrange filets in a single layer. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Tightly cover dish with foil. Bake at 450 degrees. Cook until fish is opaque, but still moist looking in thickest part, 12 to 14 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a blender, smoothly puree red peppers, parmesan, cornstarch, chili, and garlic. Add cilantro and chicken broth; whirl to blend.

Pour pepper mixture into a 10 inch frying pan. Stir over high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to keep warm.

Cook pasta in 3 quarts boiling water until tender to bite, about 7 minutes. Drain, and return to pan.

Mix 1 1/2 cups sauce with pasta. Spoon pasta onto plates. Top with fish, and drizzle with remaining sauce. Serve.

Did I change anything? I didn’t, but next time I am going to make twice as much sauce…you can never have too much sauce.

What did the family think? Hubby and I really liked it. The boys just ate the pasta.

Where did this recipe come from?
