Salmon and vegetables linguine

Bought salmon, cherry tomato and a packet of linguine on sale. My sister friend gave her a bunch of home-grown cos lettuce and she gave me half. Then my mushrooms are not looking fresh best use it. Decided to add sweet white wine that is taking up space in my fridge.

Google: “Salmon that is tender, reddish, firm fish is one of the most popular fish choices in America thanks in part to its rich, buttery flavour. The vitamin B12 in salmon keeps blood and nerve cells humming and helps you make DNA. But for your health, the true beauty of salmon is its wealth of omega-3 fatty acids. Most omega-3s are “essential” fatty acids. Your body can’t make them, but they play critical roles in your body.”

This a simple quick dinner for my family. It can be budget dish and healthy to eat. My dinner looks colourful, healthy and delicious. Let’s cook!!!


350g salmon slices (packet)
salt and freshly ground black pepper
5 -7 Tbs olive oil
2 -5 Tbs butter
450 g fresh linguine
1/2 cup home grown cos lettuce, thinly slice
1 punnet cherry tomato, quartered
1/4 cup sweet white wine (Gossips sweet Lip)
200 g cups mushroom, thinly slice
150 -200 g Parmesan, to be melted
1 Tsp garlic minced
1 shallot, roughly chopped


In a saucepan, add oil and butter on medium heat. Add garlic and shallot fry until soft and translucent. Next add the cos lettuce, fry until withered slightly, add mushroom, cherry tomatoes and stir in the wine to mix well. Then add in the salmon pieces, toss gently until combined. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the linguine until al dente, according to the package instructions. Reserve a cup of the water to add in if linguine and salmon is a bit dry. When it’s done use a tong to scoop the linguine on to the pan of salmon and vegetables. Toss gently until combined well. Transfer the pasta to a serving platter, sprinkle some Parmesan. Serve with side salad if you want.
