    Browned Butter Salmon on Sundried Tomato Pasta


    I have no idea why it took me this long to make sun dried tomato pesto for the family. That thing is amaze-balls! I did make amends for that though. The day after I made this recipe, I went out to get more sun dried tomatoes. Proceed home to make myself a huge tub of pesto, which I have been using for chicken, fish, pasta, wraps, and sandwiches. It taste so good and it is so versatile! 

    The husband and kids absolutely adored me that evening because of this dinner. The husband was going on about how good the pasta was, and how the sweetness of the salmon beautifully compliments the pesto. The girls enjoyed their dinner so much that they requested for me to make it again, to pack in their school lunch box. Did I also mentioned that they were asking for additional serving? There were not enough to go around, twice! So, if you are making it. Make more. Leftovers, if any, is always good for lunch the next day.

    I used organic extra virgin olive oil from Naturel and their range of organic pasta as well. Don’t skim on the fish. If you have not tried wild caught salmon, you are seriously missing out on the good stuff. I promise you, you will be able to taste the difference. I get my supply of wild caught fish from The Alaska Guys
