2-13...Salmon - asparagus cream sauce

We ate very well tonight...Fusilli in a creamy salmon - asparagus sauce.   It has been a while since I've prepared this, but it was worth the wait.


Olive oil
Garlic, shallots
Lemon juice
Dry whit wine
Heavy whipping cream
Dry dill, basil, and oregano
Fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped


Cook the garlic and shallots in olive oil until soft.  Cut the asparagus into 1 inch pieces and add to the pan, along with the seasoning/herbs and cook for several minutes.  Then add the wine and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes.  Add the salmon, butter, and lemon juice and continue cooking over low heat.  About 5 minutes before the pasta is ready add the cream and stir frequently.

Toss the sauce into the pasta, mix well, and enjoy.


This tasted especially good to Patience and me tonight, perhaps because we haven't had it for a while.  Or, perhaps because it was prepared with extra amounts of love, after all, tomorrow is Valentines Day and I'm "warming up".
