  • 4 boned, skinned salmon fillets (each about 1 1/2 in. thick; 1 lb. total)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup canned peeled red peppers
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh jalapeño chili
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup fat-skimmed chicken broth
  • 8 ounces dried angel hair pasta


  1. 1. In an 8-inch baking dish, mix salmon with lemon juice and arrange in a single layer.
  2. 2. Tightly cover dish with foil. Bake in a 450° oven until fish is opaque but still moist-looking in thickest part (cut to test), 12 to 14 minutes.
  3. 3. Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, smoothly purée red peppers, parmesan, cornstarch, chili, and garlic. Add cilantro and broth; whirl to blend.
  4. 4. Pour pepper mixture into a 10- to 12-inch frying pan. Stir over high heat until boiling; keep warm.
  5. 5. Meanwhile, cook pasta in 3 quarts boiling water until tender to bite, about 7 minutes. Drain; return to pan.
  6. 6. Stir juices from the baked salmon into red pepper sauce. Mix 1 1/3 cups sauce with pasta.
  7. 7. Spoon pasta onto plates. Top with fish and drizzle with remaining sauce. Serve, or cover and chill up to 1 day.
