Salmon and Pasta Piccata

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by yamma

This was the first piccata recipe I tried, and we love it. It's so easy to prepare. I once tried making it with fat free ingredients, and it is not as good. I only serve it occasionally, because it is so rich, so that makes it more of a treat.

Just delicious! I cut the recipe in half, because it was just for myself and my husband, and didn't peel or seed the cucumber because I used a Japanese one without large seeds or bitter peel. I did everything else according to the recipe, though I did add some salt. But this is wonderful. I'd been looking for a creamy salmon recipe. Now I've found it. I love the combination of salmon and dill. Thank you very much, Yamma, for this recipe.
