2 servings-double for 4 servings
5 ounces spaghetti
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 shallot, minced
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
8 oz salmon fillet
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons plain panko breadcrumbs, toasted
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large deep skillet. Add the salmon fillet and saute on both sides until cooked about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate, break into large pieces, and set aside.
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of pasta cooking water.
Add the remaining oil, garlic, chopped shallot, anchovy paste, crushed red pepper, and lemon juice to the skillet. Heat over medium-high heat until sizzling, about 3 minutes. Add the reserved pasta water, drained pasta, salmon, and salt. Cook, stirring, until the sauce coats the pasta, about 2 minutes. Divide between two pasta plates, and top each with breadcrumbs and parsley. Serve immediately.

Love the combination especially with the lemon touch. It really goes well with salmon.

I like almost anything with anchovy in the mix. This reminds of a teaser salad taste.

I have a good friend who would gobble this up. She eats a lot of salmon. 😋🌿

I just tried the recipe for the Mediterranean Lemon Pasta And Salmon. It calls for shallots but does not give any instructions in the cooking process
