An easy, colorful and elegant salmon dinner with a wonderful combination of sweet and spicy that will have your taste buds tingling. Who knew strawberries and salmon were so amazing together!

Sweet Hot Coriander Salmon with Strawberry Tomato Salad

I’ve created a simple rub for the fish and the salad is a matter of chopping and tossing. It doesn’t get much easier really.

The ingredients are a little quirky but when I saw a recipe online for coriander roasted strawberries I knew this would work with my favorite fish as well. I’m here to testify that they are a fantastic combination and I loved it!

Sweet Hot Coriander Salmon with Strawberry Tomato Salad

This method of cooking is going to give you melt-in-your mouth deliciousness. You’ll want to use a good pan, preferably cast-iron. I have regular cast iron as well as enamel-coated cast iron pans that I use for almost everything. You’re going to sear it briefly on high heat then pop it into the oven for a few minutes and presto – dinner is served!

Pappardelle with Salmon and Sugar Snap Peas

This is my new favorite pasta dish. What I love most is that the flavors are subtle yet the freshness makes it special.

Pappardelle with salmon and sugar snap peas in a large bowl

I have to say that I am both surprised and delighted by my excitement with each trip to the farms. Looking at the produce in the fields, watching it being picked and boxed and then going directly into my grocery bag is simply the best! We snacked on fresh peas on the ride back to the main market area and the crunch and taste really inspired this dish.

I used pappardelle pasta with this and if you substitute another one, please use a broad noodle because the dish really demands it. There are not a lot of ingredients so I wouldn’t vary far from the recipe. What I love most is that the flavours are subtle yet the freshness makes it special.

This comes together in no time at all and please remember that you can use chicken or vegetable stock in place of white wine with no compromise in taste. Ohhh, one other little note. I like to roast my salmon but if you like you can cut it into bite sized pieces and add it during the cooking process to make the dish even simpler.
