Farfalle with salmon, spinach and lemon-yoghurt cream


500 gr farfalle

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 clove of garlic, melted

4 fillets of salmon without skin and bone

1/3 cups white wine

1 bunch of spinach, the leaves only

3 tablespoons of lemon juice

1 spoon of lemon zest

¾ cup strained yogurt

Salt and freshly ground pepper.


Step 1:

Boil the farfalle in plenty of salted water, following the package instructions. Then drain them but keep a little of their water.

Step 2:

In a large saucepan or pan, add the olive oil to boil over medium – high heat. Pour the onion with the garlic in the pan and cook for two minutes until the onion has softened but. Salt the salmon fillets on both sides. With a spatula, push the onions around the pan and put the fillets in the middle. Bake for 2 minutes on each side. They will not be completely cooked.

Step 3:

Pour the wine in the pan and let it evaporate for about 1 minute. Add the spinach leaves over the salmon. Stir gently until the spinach wilts.

Transfer the food to a serving platter. Sprinkle with a lot of freshly ground pepper and serve.
