Ziti with Honey Mustard Salmon

  • Active Time 25m
  • Total Time 25m

Serves 4

The salmon here is roasted with a thin coat of honey and sprinkling of pepper, then tossed with the pasta and a subtle mustard cream sauce. For a more intense mustard flavor, add an additional teaspoon to the sauce.
WINE RECOMMENDATION:
With the sweetness of the honey and the heat and acidity of the mustard, a fruity red wine such as a slightly chilled California pinot noir would be an excellent choice.

ingredients

  • 1 pound salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon grainy or Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 3/4 pound ziti

directions

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a small roasting pan. Put the salmon in the pan, skin side down. Spread the honey over the salmon and then sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Roast the salmon until just barely done, about 12 minutes, depending upon the thickness of the fillet. Remove from the oven.

In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until about 1 tablespoon remains, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the mustard, cream, salt and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Turn off the heat. Flake the salmon and stir it and the parsley into the sauce.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the ziti until just done, about 13 minutes. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce.
