Salmon and Fettuccine Fiesta

serves 2


1 lb salmon filet

1 pack of refrigerated fettuccine pasta (we like this brand)

3-4 garlic cloves, sliced

¼ cup diced onions

¼ cup diced black olives

1 medium green pepper, diced

2 tbsp olive oil

½ cup sundried tomatoes in olive oil, sliced

¼ cup black olives, diced

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried oregano

½ tsp dried thyme

¼ tsp red pepper flakes

1 cup diced tomatoes

2 bay leaves

Freshly ground black pepper and kosher salt to taste

1 cup fresh chopped spinach (frozen spinach in a bag can be used)

1 tbsp butter or buttery spread



1. Saute garlic, onions and peppers in olive oil.

2. Add sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, basil, oregano and pepper flakes. Stir and cook on medium heat for 2 minutes.

3. Stir in fresh tomatoes and bay leaves. Cover pan with lid and simmer for about 20-30 minutes to create a sauce. 

4. Slice salmon into serving sizes and season with salt and pepper. Take 1 tbsp of the sauce and drizzle over salmon.

5. Place salmon in air fryer at 350 degrees for 8 minutes (for medium doneness). Alternatively, you can pan fry the salmon in a little olive oil.

6. Cook fettuccine according to package instructions. Drain.

7. Steam spinach until tender. Once done, season to taste and toss with butter.

8. Serve by layering each serving with fettuccine first, spinach, salmon, then top with the rest of the sauce. Enjoy!


Until next time, may your life be filled with joy and color!
