Directions

  1. Preheat outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Puree roasted red peppers in a food processor; transfer to a cold large skillet.
  3. Stir chicken broth, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup cilantro, cornstarch, jalapeno pepper, and garlic into red pepper puree.
  4. Bring red pepper mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Keep warm.
  5. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir angel hair and olive oil into the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain.
  6. Cook salmon, skin side up, until skin begins to loosen, about 5 minutes. Remove from grill and peel skin. Continue cooking on other side until salmon flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes.
  7. Divide angel hair pasta among 5 warm plates. Nestle a salmon fillet into each pasta portion. Drizzle red pepper sauce around salmon onto pasta. Garnish with 1 tablespoon cilantro and chives.
  8. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Great recipe! I did not use the jalapeno because I don't like spicy hot foods. Instead of grilling the salmon I poached it. The sauce was very tasty and helped make a nice presentation.

I did tweak the recipe a bit, but not too much. The salmon needs seasoning - salt & pepper at the minimum, but I chose to use some blackened seasoning that I had left (recipe also from this site). Grilling the salmon would have been great too, but I chose to broil it in the oven, because it was freezing out today, and I wasn't about to fire up the grill. I used my own roasted peppers (the ones in the jar just don't cut it for me), and I subbed fresh parsley for the cilantro, in keeping with more Italian flavors. The sauce is so good! I love the addition of the parmesan, which gives it a creamy texture. We all enjoyed this recipe, and I will make it again. Thanks!

AMAZING flavor! I used 2 fresh red bell peppers that I roasted then pureed, instead of canned ones. Also used canned Salmon that I flaked into the pasta. Dish was flavorful, with the spicy tang from the jalapeno, freshness from cilantro, smoky flavor of the red peppers, and the creaminess of the parmesan all working together perfectly with the salmon.
