Penne Pasta Salad with Poached Salmon

Penne Pasta Salad with Poached Salmon, Roasted Vegetables & Sweet Chilli Mayonnaise.

 

RECIPE 

 

Ingredients:

12oz/350g penne pasta

1 ½ mixed peppers-cut into chunks

1 box cherry tomatoes

1 red onion-cut into wedges

3 cloves garlic-crushed

3 tablespoons of sweet chilli mayonnaise

4 portions poached salmon

1oz/25g grated parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

 

Poached Salmon:

4 portions of salmon

½ glass of white wine

Lemon wedges

Fresh parsley

1 onion-sliced

1 bay leaf

Salt& Cracked black pepper.

 

Sweet Chilli Mayonnaise

3 tablespoon mayonnaise

2 tablespoons sweet chilli relish

 

Method:

  • Line baking tray with parchment.
  • Put the salmon on the tray leaving the skin on the salmon.
  • Season the fish with a little salt and cracked black pepper.
  • Pour the wine over the fish
  • Scatter the remaining herbs, onions and lemon wedges around the tray for additional flavour.
  • Loosely cover the fish with a piece of parchment and tin foil and put into a preheated oven (180C/350F/Gas Mark 4).
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, checking in on it occasionally.
  • Allow to cool, completely, on the tray and then break the salmon into pieces.
  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add a little drizzle of olive oil which will stop the pasta from sticking.
  • Plunge the pasta into the boiling water and boil according to the packet instructions.
  • When the pasta is cooked strain into a large colander and leave it under cold running water until the pasta has completely cooled down. This process is known as blanching and refreshing. Retain it until required.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4
  • Meanwhile place the peppers, red onion, garlic and cherry tomatoes onto a flat baking tray. Season with a little salt and pepper, drizzle with a little oil and place in the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes or until all of the vegetables have softened completely.
  • Allow the vegetables to cool
  • Mix the roasted vegetables, poached salmon and the chilled pasta together.
  • Mix in some seasoning and the chilli mayonnaise and stir until it has completely coated all of the pasta & vegetables.
  • Arrange in a large serving bowl and scatter with the grated parmesan cheese and the chopped parsley.
