Pasta with Salmon and Peas

Just had to post this wonderful salmon recipe for my blogging friend <a href="">Ina in Alaska</a>. I don't make this often because my salmon is not exactly fresh caught like Ina's. It works well with frozen, and I have used a 10 ounce package of frozen peas instead of fresh. Ina if you make this think of me while you are enjoying all this goodness.

1/4 pound unsalted butter
1 clove garlic
1 pound salmon steak, skinned, boned, and cut into 1-inch cubes
Salt to taste
1 pound fresh peas, shelled and cooked
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1 pound pasta shells, ziti, or penne
Freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the garlic and the salmon. Stir gently. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until just done. Add the salt, peas, and parsley. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute

Cook the pasta until it is al dente according to package directions. Drain. Add to the salmon mixture. Add the pepper and lemon juice. Serve hot.
