Herb Red Pepper Baked Salmon

Tender pasta topped with red pepper sauce and baked salmon fillets makes an artful presentation and a meal that calls for little else to round it out. It’s worth the effort to multi-task while making this recipe. While the pasta is cooking, make the Red Pepper Sauce and put the salmon in the oven. It all comes together, hot and delicious.

Makes 4 servings



1. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain, set aside and keep warm.

2. Meanwhile, in a blender purée broth, red peppers, Parmesan cheese, parsley, cilantro, cornstarch and garlic until almost smooth. Pour red pepper sauce into a skillet and bring to boiling. Reduce heat; stir in half-and-half. Cover and keep warm.  

3. Place salmon fillets in a baking dish; sprinkle with lemon juice. Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

4.  Divide pasta among 4 serving dishes. Top with about 1⁄3 cup of the red pepper sauce and a salmon fillet. Spoon on remaining red pepper sauce.
