Healthy Salmon Stroganoff Pasta

This seafood version of Stroganoff uses salmon fillets, en-robed in a tart creamy dill sauce. Served with pasta, this is a quick, easy and healthy weeknight meal.

Fish has always been a big part of my diet. Growing up, my Dad and brother loved to go fishing (they still do) and when my brother moved away, I went fishing with Dad. We always ate what we caught and never wasted. It was a great way to stretch the grocery budget. While I have been fishing at the cottage the last few summers, we did more of a catch and release. So, we now a days we make due with store bought fish.

Salmon is one of the best sources of long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. It is an essential fat, meaning your body does not produce it and we have to get it from our diet. Being credited with many health benefits EPA and DHA are said to help decrease inflammation, lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of cancer and improve heart health. I never really was fond of salmon, until about 6 years ago, when I found a delicious Teriyaki recipe for fresh salmon. Over the years my love for fresh salmon has grown and I try to add it to our menu, at least once a month. So if I can find some fresh salmon at a reasonable price, I'll buy some. I usually roast it in the oven, with a lemon and dill. Since I had some leftover salmon in the fridge, I wondered if I could use it to make a totally new meal. Then it hit me. PASTA! With a creamy dill sauce. Very reminiscent of a stroganoff.

Stoganoff is a meal that originated in Russia and is typically a dish of sauteed pieces of beef, served in a sauce made with sour cream. I decided that the salmon would pair wonderfully with a creamy dill sauce. I used Greek yogurt, instead of sour cream, to make the dish a little healthier. The kids totally loved this pasta. They loved the creamy sauce, the dill and the chunks of delicious salmon that was found throughout. It was tangy, salty and tamed the "fishy" taste of the salmon wonderfully. A great way to turn leftovers into a totally different meal.

Salmon Stroganoff Pasta

1 box tri colour Rotini
2 Tbs olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 C chicken stock
2 C kale, finely chopped
1 C Greek yogurt, plain
1 Tbs Pampered Chef All Purpose Dill Mix ( or dried dill)
1/2 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper
1 1/2 C cooked salmon, broken into chunks ( you can also use canned)

Bring a large pot of salted water, to a boil. Pour in the pasta and cook according to package directions. Reserve a cup of pasta water, before draining.

While pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add in the onion and cook until translucent; about 3 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook until fragrant; about 1 minute.

Add the chicken stock to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Throw in the kale, tossing to coat with liquid and let cook until tender; about 6-8 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sour cream, dill, salt and pepper.

Return the skillet to the heat and add the salmon. Cook gently stirring until the salmon is heated through; about 5 minutes. Add in the drained pasta and gently toss to coat with sauce; adding reserved pasta water if the sauce is too thick.


I am sharing this recipe at these AWESOME linky parties

  3. Love salmon and stroganoff! Great idea to combine the two. Also love all the flavors you added in :

    1. Thank you! The salmon is a great slightly sweet contrast to the tart stroganoff.

  4. Although I'm not a great fan of fish pasta, your recipe seems to have lots of flavours that might change the taste I know. I'll pass it to the pasta chef for next time he's making it!:)

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

50+ Creative Cottage Meal Ideas

When the warm weather hits many of us head to the cottage, to enjoy the sunshine and time near the water. Instead of always packing up burgers and hot dogs, I've rounded up over 50 creative meal ideas for delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Ever since I was little my family always enjoyed a few weeks camping at a near by provincial park, during the summer months. When us kids, became older and moved away, Mom and Dad bought a trailer which remained parked at a location, so we would often go and visit for a few weeks then too. My mom has always been an amazing cook and with her outside kitchen often made our family favourites, even at camp. Now that my SO and his family have a cottage, we are frequently there for most of the summer. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs seem to be our go to, so I wanted to collect new creative meals perfect to make while camping, or at the cottage.  Breakfast Recipes Healthy Banana Milkshake Thick, creamy banana milkshake made without ice cream, dairy, and

Sam & Cat Sloppy Waffles

 A nod to the popular preteen TV show Sam & Cat, these s loppy waffles pair classic sloppy joes with crisp waffles. Years ago, my daughter fell in love with a kids show called Sam and Cat. This show melds two shows the kids use to watch together. It stars Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) from iCarly and Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande) from Victorious. It's a witty and fun show and the kids loved the hijinks these two girls get into every week. In one particular episode, they get stuck inside a secret room, they find in their apartment (which use to be Cat's Nonna's before she moved to Elderly Acres). While they are stuck in the secret room, Cat mentions her idea of Sloppy Waffles, which pairs waffles and sloppy joes. Sam falls in love with the idea and once they are rescued by their friend Goomer, the show ends with the girls enjoying Sloppy Waffles. We recently watched the episode on Netflix, and the kids commented that we should try to make Sloppy Waffles. I thought it wa
