Salmon with Pappardelle and a Brandy Cream Sauce #SundaySupper

Salmon with Pappardelle and a Brandy Cream Sauce
Can’t believe we are in the last leg of summer, it’s amazing how time flies. I don’t know about you but I feel like summer never really got started here in the PNW. Many of our veggies and berries came later in the season as the winter weather clung on long and hard.

Summer vacation is quickly coming to an end and the kids will be back in school. It’s a Sunday Supper post again and this time we are sharing our best back-to-school dinners. All-in-one dinners, skillet dinners, any dinner recipe that makes life easier for a busy parent that the whole family will love. Please be sure and check the links below to see what everyone else in the Sunday Supper club has brought to the table. Many thanks to our event manager, Em Beitel of Life Tastes Good. Thank you Em!

This meal is quick to prepare and easy to serve. Canned salmon or tuna can be easily subbed for the fresh salmon. Instead of the spinach swap out frozen peas, in the coolers months, butternut squash. Versatile, quick and easy, perfect for those fast paced school nights.



Salmon with Pappardelle and a Brandy Cream Sauce

INGREDIENTS:


  • 8 ounces pappardelle
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillet
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 to 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon green onion, minced
  • 1/3 cup veggie broth
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

INSTRUCTIONS:


  1. Cook pasta in boiling salted water according to package directions. Reserve ½ cup of the water before draining.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add olive oil. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Cook salmon in hot oil 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate; flake into large pieces with a fork.
  3. In the same skillet add the garlic with a couple dashes of salt. Cook about 2 minutes then add all the spinach, cook until the spinach wilts stirring to coat with the garlic, transfer to plate with salmon flakes.
  4. To make the cream sauce once again in the same skillet over medium-high heat, add butter, when melted add green onion and sauté until tender, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in broth and brandy. Cook about 5 minutes or until mixture is reduced (should coat back of spoon).
  5. Stir in the heavy cream and season with salt and pepper if desired.
  6. To Serve, gently combine pasta, salmon and spinach with brandy sauce. If a looser sauce is desired add some of the pasta water. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.

  3. Cheri:
    I guess I'm in a bit of denial that it's mid-August already. It was a cool evening yesterday, and this pasta dish would have been perfect....perhaps tonight.
    Enjoy the rest of your summer in Oregon.
    Thanks for all your wonderful recipes.
