Summertime Salmon Pasta
June 30, 2021
This pasta is packed with muscle building protein and anti-inflammatory omega-3s. The onion and asparagus contain carbohydrates that act as prebiotics which promote gut health and help maintain a strong immune system.
Preheat oven broiler to high. Bring a pot of water to a boil, then add orzo and stir periodically. After 7 minutes, add the asparagus to the pot with the orzo and cook for 2 more minutes. Drain and set aside in a large serving bowl. While orzo is cooking, season salmon fillet with salt and pepper. Place on foil-lined broiler pan. Broil for 8 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through. Break broiled fish into smaller pieces using two forks and add to serving bowl with asparagus and orzo. Combine the lemon vinaigrette ingredients in a bowl and stir. Add the red onion to the bowl of asparagus and orzo, pour the vinaigrette over the contents, and toss gently before serving.
