Great recipe! I did not use the jalapeno because I don't like spicy hot foods. Instead of grilling the salmon I poached it. The sauce was very tasty and helped make a nice presentation.
I did tweak the recipe a bit, but not too much. The salmon needs seasoning - salt & pepper at the minimum, but I chose to use some blackened seasoning that I had left (recipe also from this site). Grilling the salmon would have been great too, but I chose to broil it in the oven, because it was freezing out today, and I wasn't about to fire up the grill. I used my own roasted peppers (the ones in the jar just don't cut it for me), and I subbed fresh parsley for the cilantro, in keeping with more Italian flavors. The sauce is so good! I love the addition of the parmesan, which gives it a creamy texture. We all enjoyed this recipe, and I will make it again. Thanks!
AMAZING flavor! I used 2 fresh red bell peppers that I roasted then pureed, instead of canned ones. Also used canned Salmon that I flaked into the pasta. Dish was flavorful, with the spicy tang from the jalapeno, freshness from cilantro, smoky flavor of the red peppers, and the creaminess of the parmesan all working together perfectly with the salmon.
Pretty good. The salmon could use seasoning before grilling. The dish seemed to have some flavor, but not the OOMPH we expected. We kept adding more salt. I wonder if something like capers in the sauce would help? Felt it was missing something.
I had Pacific cod, so that's what I used instead of salmon, and I had snail shell pasta instead of angel hair, but otherwise I followed all the instructions...eventually. (I did use my own roasted red peppers because it's so much cheaper that way.) I forgot to add the cilantro at first though, and so I'm eating the sauce and thinking "this is pretty good, kind of basic Italian tasting, just with a hint of kick from the jalapeno, maybe a 4 star recipe" and then I remembered the chives and cilantro, sprinkled the dried herbs on top, tasted it again, and WOW it made everything just pop. Very good!
