8. Brush salmon lightly with olive oil and place in hot pan, lightly sear and remove when fully cooked.

Plate by layering pasta, veggies and then salmon, pour a little extra sauce on the top of the fish and enjoy, this dish keeps well in the fridge for up to 5 days, but does not freeze well, the whole wheat pasta noodles have an odd consistency after being defrosted. If you use enriched pasta this would not be an issue.
