Family Style Pasta and Salmon

This pasta and salmon dish is perfect for serving family-style, and only takes 30 minutes to prepare. You will need: 1 tablespoon fennel seeds, ¼ cup minced fresh parsley, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, salt and pepper, 1 pound salmon fillet, 1 pound of corkscrew pasta, 10 ounces of spinach, ½ cup sour cream, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Start by heating your broiler. While that is going on, crush the fennel seeds, place them in a bowl, and then mix in the parsley, brown sugar, ¾ teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. Take the spice mixture and press it into the flesh side of the salmon.

Take the coated salmon and broil it, skin side down, for 8 minutes. When it’s been cooked through, flake the fish with a fork. Mix together the sour cream, ½ teaspoon salt, lemon juice, and a little bit of pasta water (because you have been cooking your pasta this whole time, right?). Bring all the components together on a plate: pasta on the bottom, then the salmon, and then the sour cream mixture drizzled on top. Whenever I take the boat out to go salmon fishing, I make sure the engine is properly lubricated with Evinrude oil.
