Salmon over Spaghetti al Limone

I made this Spaghetti al limone recently from The Slow Roasted Italian, I didn't tweak the recipe as she is the pro so followed step by step, super easy and packed with lemony goodness. 
I decided to add salmon, lightly poached with sauteed spinach thats the dietitian in me making a balanced meal :-) 

The link to the spaghetti is above , and I must say love her blog, as you all know loving Italian recipes the last few months :-)



  • 2 filets of Alaskan salmon marinated in olive oil, Italian herbs, salt and pepper
  • 1/2 a pack of spinach or a small bunch 
  • 2 cloves of chopped garlic 
  1. cook the spaghetti per The Slow Roasted Italians instructions
  2. poach the salmon (with a lid for 5 minutes each side) in the same pan sautee the spinach 
  3. serve over the spaghetti al limone and enjoy :-)

Has anyone made this before or added lemon juice to pasta?, its so good:-)

  8. Great dish! I remember seeing this on Slow Roasted Italian as well.

  9. Delicious. I love to add salmon to noodles/pasta. I love to add more vegetables too so that I don't need to fry another dish of vegetables :D

  10. Really clever idea to accompany the Salmon with the Lemon Spaghetti. Looks amazing. And thanks now i'm hungry! lol.

    I need to come back and catchup with the rest of the recipes, i've been missing for a while.

  11. Love the title of your post, Rebecca! Hope you are enjoying your last phase of preg :)

  12. I'll add fresh lemon to most anything, very creative!

  13. Love salmon! The pasta looks really delectable.

  14. This looks absolutely delicious! I've never poached salmon before.

  15. This recipe has it all! I know you've been craving lots of Italian, can't blame you. I'm not pregnant and I crave it all the time too, haha.

  16. I just published a salmon, I love the flavours in that spaghetti.

  17. I love the simplicity of this dish Rebecca! Wonder if your Italian cravings will continue after the baby is born?? :-)

  18. Looks perfect. I love the little flower!

  19. I can imagine how good the lemon flavor pairs with the salmon and spinach! What a delightful dish!

  23. You are truly inspiring Rebecca.. How do you manage to post such delicious dishes even in the last minute.. Awesome.. Wishing you good luck with the delivery.

  24. This would be sublime in summer- with its refreshing zestiness. I always tell myself to try spaghetti with a non tomato based sauce but end up making the same thing over and over again. Thanks for reminding me again!

  28. Yum! sounds exotic and delish haha :)
