    Salmon with spicy spaghetti.

What you need: Serves 4

4 4-oz pieces of salmon
1/2 pound whole-wheat spaghetti pasta
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or minced
2 Tbsp cream cheese
2 tsp chili garlic sauce
2-3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp salt, plus more for seasoning
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
1/2 cup red peppers, diced
1 tbsp lemon juice


Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box. Drain, and reserve a cup of the liquid.

In a skillet, warm olive oil. When it begins to shimmer, add the garlic; after a few seconds, throw in the green onions and red peppers. Turn off the heat.

Add the cream cheese, chili garlic sauce, salt, and pepper. Pour in about 1/4 cup of the pasta liquid. Stir well.

When the mixture is warm and combined, add the drained pasta. Toss to combine.

In another medium skillet over medium-high heat, add some olive oil. Season the salmon with salt and pepper.

Add the fish to the pan and cook until medium-rare, about 2 and 1/2 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fish. Remove the salmon from the pan.

Squeeze a fresh lemon on the cooked salmon and lay it over a bed of warm spicy pasta. Garnish it with a generous serving of chopped cilantro. Serve hot. Enjoy!
