Easy Salmon and Pasta for One

One night last week, I found myself home alone – needing only to cook for one. Of course, for me, this means pasta 90% of the time. What can I say? I love pasta – so easy (and super easy to cook for 1)!

I had some salmon fillets in the freezer that I thought would work well (single serve and easy to cook in the oven). You could certainly use any salmon fillet – but, I used these by Gorton’s, since I had them on hand.

While the salmon was cooking in the oven, I was deciding what I would do with the pasta. I had some cherry tomatoes and spinach. And, lemon was an obvious addition, given that I was eating salmon.

I halved the tomatoes and chopped the spinach (I didn’t have baby spinach) and removed any stems.

Both were put in a hot skillet, with a little bit of avocado oil, salt and pepper. Once the spinach was wilted and the tomatoes were warmed through, I added the juice of 1/2 a lemon.

I dished up a serving of cooked spaghetti, added the cooked salmon and topped with the veggies.

A quick and easy (and delicious) meal for one!

    • This is an easy way to try it! Couldn’t be simpler – it’s just bake in the bag, following the directions on the package. I also do plain fillets in a skillet, pretty easily, as well. But these cook in packet deals are a great way to start!
