Protein Packed Chipotle Salmon + Pasta

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 salmon fillet
  • Pasta of choice (I used My Protein Protein Pasta here; I would also recommend Banza Chickpea Pasta for another high protein alternative)
  • 1/2 large bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup red cabbage, chopped
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • Olive Oil
  • Chipotle seasoning
  • Black pepper
  • Sea salt

Do it:

  1. Cook pasta according to directions on package and set aside
  2. Pre-heat a skillet on medium-high and add olive oil
  3. Pan-fry salmon in the skillet with chipotle seasoning. Add the salmon skin-down first and then flip after about 3-4 minutes. After flipped, fry for a few more minutes or until it’s completely cooked through (this will depend on how thick your fillet is)
  4. Remove salmon from heat but keep skillet heated. Add veggies to the skillet (cooking the veggies in the same skillet the salmon was just in adds a really nice flavor!)
  5. Add black pepper + sea salt to the veggies
  6. After a few minutes, remove veggies form the skillet and mix in with pasta.
  7. Add a splash of olive oil the the pasta and mix together
  8. Plop the salmon fillet on top of the veggies + pasta
