The rustic flavor of fresh mushrooms in a creamy Parmesan cheese sauce is a winning combination. Paired with the gentle texture of angel hair pasta and mild salmon, this entree is an economical method to make your salmon go a long way. The pasta is filling and the mushrooms give the dish some height, so one typical portion of salmon does double duty.
- Boil angel hair pasta in salted water with a tablespoon of olive oil and set aside. (Do not drain until you're ready to serve it.) Heat 3 pats butter in a pan on medium heat. In another pan, heat the other 3 pats of butter.
- Remove skin from salmon and place it in the first and cook, spooning butter over it until it's cooked through. Once butter is melted in the second pan, add sliced mushrooms and let cook down.
- While salmon is cooking, continue to cook mushrooms and add cream. Stir together. Sprinkle in flour and stir. As it begins to thicken, add in Parmesan cheese.
- Drain pasta and toss it in cream sauce (pull out two or three mushrooms to garnish salmon). Place about a cup of dressed pasta on serving plates and top with butter cooked salmon steaks. Top with stray mushrooms and a sprig of Italian parsley and serve immediately.
