Baked Salmon Buckwheat Pasta – healthy & gluten free

Baked Salmon Buckwheat Pasta

While this may not be the prettiest of mid week meals to look at, Baked Salmon Buckwheat Pasta is certainly tasty, healthy, gluten free, quick & easy to make plus it fills you up without giving you that bloated feeling. For me that ticks a lot of boxes for easy dinners the whole family can enjoy. And guess what, even the fussy one enjoys this dinner – amazing!

I don’t know why buckwheat has wheat in its name (anyone?) as it has no wheat in it and is actually a seed so you can add “grain free” to this meals attributes too!  While you can just as easily make this dinner with regular pasta I use buckwheat pasta as a gluten free alternative.  If anything it has a slightly nutty taste and is not as heavy as normal pasta.

I bake the salmon for this meal but you could steam it or pan fry if that suits you better.

So as this dinner is about being healthy and time efficient I won’t waste any more of your time with my drivel and will get on with giving you the recipe…

Baked Salmon Buckwheat Pasta – healthy & gluten free

Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 packet buckwheat pasta (if you are feeding 2 adults & 2 children add more pasta if there are more)
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable stock concentrate (optional I use the Thermomix recipe one, it's just to add some extra flavour to the pasta)
  • 1 head broccoli cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 1/2 C frozen peas
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • Parmesan to sprinkle on top

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. Put the salmon in the oven with a little drizzle of olive oil on top and bake for 20 minutes
  3. Boil a saucepan of water for the pasta & then cook the pasta as per packet instructions. If using the vegetable stock put into the water at the same time as the pasta.
  4. With 5 minutes of pasta cooking time to go add the frozen peas to the saucepan. If you have a bamboo steamer put the broccoli in that and steam on top of the pasta if not just throw into the saucepan too.
  5. Drain the pasta and veggies and put back in the saucepan (not need to create extra washing up). Remove the salmon from the oven and slice into bite sized pieces and add to the saucepan. Pout the lemon juice in and stir everything through.
  6. Serve up into bowls and sprinkle parmesan over the top.
  7. Dinner Done!

    Pretty or not, this looks soooo delicious Vicki. I’m loving all your gluten-free recipes. We have been doing a lot of gluten-free bread, pasta etc. in our house and it has been working wonders from the digestive side of things. We aren’t 100% gluten-free but even so, there has been a noticeable difference in terms of bloating and I just generally feel lighter and more energetic, which is great! It has been quite some time since I’ve had buckwheat pasta. If I remember correctly the one I tried was from Orgran and it was great. I will need to hunt it down again, because it would be a nice change from the usual rice/corn-based gluten-free pastas out there!

      Thanks Lisa we aren’t 100% gluten free either but like you I can notice when I’ve had too much of it. Orgran is the one we use, it’s in the gluten free section at the supermarket. x
