Grilled Salmon on a Rigged Bed of Angel Hair Alfredo

Okay, so this name may have thrown y’all off a little. I’ve rigged this entree a tad. Only a tad though :). This is one of my husband’s favorite weeknight meals. He LOVES alfredo sauce – and when we need a break from meat/poultry, we turn to good ol’ Salmon. So this entree is a concoction of the two merged together. However, given our crazy schedules, I don’t really have the time to whip up a home-made white sauce – so I thank God for ready made Alfredo Sauce that tastes DIVINE! Classico is a true life-saver! The best part of this meal, is the quick clean-up. I usually use a bag like foil to grill the fish, boil the pasta in the same pot that I’m going to warm up the sauce in! So essentially, just one pot, one spatula and a colander to clean up!

Hope y’all enjoy as much as the husband does!


Grilled Salmon on a Rigged Bed of Angel Hair Alfredo

Ingredients:

1 lb Salmon (about 4 fillets)
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp Montreal Steak seasoning
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp crushed red chilly flakes
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 
2 tbsp chilly infused oil

1/2 lb angel hair pasta – boiled al-dente (4 minutes) 

1 container Four Cheese Alfredo Sauce by Classico
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp garlic granules
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Directions:

1. Wash the salmon fillets, rinse with vinegar to eliminate any pungent odors. 
2. Take a bowl and mix together all the marinade ingredients: lemon pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, steak seasoning, paprika, crushed red chilly flakes, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and chilly infused oil. Submerge the fillets into this marinade and refrigerate for 2 hours (at minimum). Turn the fillets half-way to ensure they are coated equally. 
3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees (Farenheit). Take a long peace of foil, and make a bag like structure to insert the fillets in. Ensure all sides are closed, except a small hole to allow steam out. Place on baking sheet, and let bake for 15 minutes. 
4. In the meantime, prepare your white sauce. In a pot, heat up the extra virgin olive oil.
5. Add parsley flakes, oregano, basil, garlic granules, black pepper, salt. Stir, but don’t allow garlic granules to burn. 
6. Quickly add in the jar of Alfredo sauce – reduce heat and let simmer. 
7. If the consistency is too thick, you can add 1 tbsp water, but not more. 
8. Add cooked angel hair, toss to coat. Ensure it warms up thoroughly before you serve. 
9. Serve with grilled salmon. 
10. Enjoy!
