Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 390F.
  2. Place salmon in a small baking dish. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Top with butter and garlic, drizzle over lemon and olive oil.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until salmon is just cooked through.
  5. Cool for a few minutes, then flake into large chunks – it will break up more when tossing.
  6. Add pasta and herbs into the pan. Toss gently to coat pasta with pan juices.
  7. Add more lemon if desired. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Serve immediately! Traditionally, seafood pastas are not garnished with parmesan but you can do so if you wish.

Recipe Notes

*This will work with almost any fresh herb – like basil, chives, oregano.
