The Critical Mom's Salmon De Luxe

When everybody's tired of Yet Another Asian Dish with Ginger and Tofu, this is what I make.  You will need:

Salmon for three or four
Black spaghetti (yes, the kind with squid ink)
Garlic (lots)
Shallots (several)
Yellow or red bell peppers (Why not both?)
Olive oil
Dash of butter
Lemon Pepper

(1) Turn on the broiler.  Arrange the fish in a baking dish.  Add a dribble of olive oil, lemon pepper, garlic sauce.   Set aside.

(2) Put spaghetti in boiling water.  Meanwhile, put a few tablespoons of olive oil in a pan; add chopped garlic, shallots, sliced bell peppers.  Sautée until soft.

(3) Put the fish under the broiler--it will need up to ten minutes, but probably less.

(4) An option: steam some broccoli as a side dish.

When the pasta is done, drain it and add it to the garlic-shallot-bell pepper mix.  Toss.  When the fish is done, slice it into bite-sized pieces and add to pasta.

Toss.  Top with grated parmesan or grana.
