Salmon Over Linguine With Agretti
Recipe Type: Secondi
Serves: 4 servings
Agretti is a unique ingredient, rarely seen because of it's short growing season. Salmon Over Linguine With Agretti is a great way to take advantage of it by highlighting its fresh and slightly acidic flavor, by paring it with fresh salmon and pasta.
  • 8 oz linguine pasta
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1½ pound wild salmon fillets, skin on
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 15 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 6 oz agretti, thick or yellow stems removed, then coarsely chopped
  • zest and juice of ½ a medium sized lemon
  • ½ cup Parmesan, grated
  1. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain water and run pasta under cold water to stop cooking. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat. Season salmon filets with salt and pepper. Add salmon, skin side down, to pan and cook for about 6 minutes. Flip and cook on other side for 1-2 minutes longer, until salmon is cooked through. Transfer fish to plate and cover with foil while preparing agretti.
  3. In the same pan, add an additional tablespoon of olive oil. Add garlic and tomatoes and cook until garlic becomes fragrant, about 3 minutes. Toss is agretti and cook until it softens, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in lemon juice and zest. Add pasta to pan and mix well. Stir in Parmesan cheese and toss to coat. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Serve salmon over pasta.
