1 10-Min Creamy Pesto Salmon Fusilli

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps

Wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)

2 10-Min Creamy Pesto Salmon Fusilli

Now, let's get started

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Boil a full kettle

Once hot, add the salmon fillets with a pinch of salt and cook for 2 min on each side or until browned on both sides and almost cooked through

3 10-Min Creamy Pesto Salmon Fusilli

Meanwhile, add the quick cook fusilli to a pot with plenty of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the fusilli for just 2-3 min (it will keep cooking in the sauce later!)

Once done, drain the fusilli, reserving a cup of the starchy pasta water

4 10-Min Creamy Pesto Salmon Fusilli

While the pasta cooks, chop the cherry tomatoes in half

5 10-Min Creamy Pesto Salmon Fusilli

Once the salmon is almost cooked, add the chopped cherry tomatoes and cook for 2-3 min further

 

6 10-Min Creamy Pesto Salmon Fusilli

Carefully peel the skin off the salmon and discard it

Break the cooked salmon into large, bite-sized pieces with a wooden spoon and add the classic nut pesto and soft cheese with approx. 75ml [150ml] starchy pasta water and stir it all together

Cook for 1 min further or until the sauce has thickened slightly

 

7 10-Min Creamy Pesto Salmon Fusilli

Add the drained pasta and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up – this is your creamy pesto salmon fusilli
