Method Prep:5min › Cook:15min › Ready in:20min
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C /gas mark 6. Place the salmon into a casserole or baking dish, season with the tarragon and pour over a tablespoon or two of red wine. Cover with a lid or foil.
Bake the salmon for about 5 minutes, then remove the lid, and add the prawns to the dish. Cover, and return to the oven. Cook for 10 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork, and prawns are pink.
Meanwhile bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti, and cook for 10 minutes, or until tender. After the first 5 minutes, add the asparagus spears they will be done at the same time.
As you wait for the pasta, heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms; cook and stir for a few minutes, then add the garlic. Cook until garlic is fragrant, then add the wine. Cook and stir to remove any bits stuck to the pan, then reduce the heat to low and stir in the cream.
Drain the spaghetti and asparagus, and mix into the skillet with the cream sauce. Flake the salmon and mix it in too. Pour onto a serving platter and place the prawns on top. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese, and serve.
I never made a fish dish with red wine, always white...so i was curious...when making this dish it looked and tasted slightly awful lol but when all the flavours came together it was yummy ...i put a whole packet of king prawns in, and the pic was taken before i covered it with parmasan. Will defo make it again - 16 May 2012
I was intrigued by the red wine rather than white. Hubbie said he thought the sauce would look awful, so to be on the safe side I poached the salmon and prawns separately in some of the wine and only used a tad when sautéing the onion and garlic. Perfect outcome. So, so tasty. Will definitely poach salmon in red wine in future and tarragon rather than dill and white wine! - 02 Nov 2016
