Salmon over angel hair pasta with lemon cream sauce
Oh my, I'm not a fan of cream sauce's, but this is sooooooooooo good!!

  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 pound angel hair pasta (also called capellini)
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Salmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup (loosely packed) chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup (loosely packed) chopped chives
  • Zest of a lemon
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
2 In a smaller pot, heat the cream, chicken stock and lemon juice to a low simmer. Simmer gently for 5 minutes.
3 Add the angel hair pasta to the boiling water.
4 Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet on medium high. Season salmon with salt and pepper and place skin side up in the oil. Cook it for 3 minutes, then flip and cook another 3-5 minutes.
5 When the pasta is done, drain and put it in a large bowl. Add the herbs to the simmering lemon cream sauce and let them cook for about 1 minute.  Add the lemon zest and most of the parmesan and mix again. Divide into servings, and top with the remaining parmesan.

Ooooh guess what we're having for dinner tomorrow night?
We love salmon but always have done Canadian style...with maple syrup. This would make a nice change. Thank you.
