Blushing spring bow ties

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 cups Water
1 cup White wine
4 Sprigs parsley
4 Black peppercorns
1 pounds Salmon fillet
1 pounds Asparagus
½ pounds Red new potatoes; blanched, cut into 1/4" dice
1 cup Fresh or frozen peas; cooked
½ cup Olive oil
3 tablespoons Shallots; chopped
2 tablespoons Fresh chives; snipped
1 tablespoon Lemon zest; finely grated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper; to taste
12 ounces Uncooked bow-tie pasta
1 cup Ripe plum tomatoes; diced 1/4"
¼ cup Fresh lemon juice

Bring water, wine, parsley and peppercorns to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat; simmer covered for 10 minutes. Add salmon and cook, partially covered, until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, about 10 minutes. Remove salmon and set aside to cool. Flake the fish with the grain. Reserve.

Trim and discard the tough stem ends of the asparagus. Cut the stalks into 1-inch pieces; blanch until just tender. Drain and place in a large bowl with the potatoes, peas, oil, shallots, chives, lemon zest, salt and pepper; toss together.

Before serving, cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and add to the vegetables along with the tomatoes and lemon juice. Gently fold in the salmon.

*When poaching the salmon, make sure the water simmers gently - do not let it boil. A tip: Both the tomatoes and the lemon juice are acidic and may discolor the green vegetables, so add them at the end of the recipe.
