Salmon Aglio e olio is a classic italian pasta with garlic and oil sauce. It is always a favorite star of our family, the cooking is easy, cheap and the ingredients is really simple. Healthy too! Originally from Rome, where it is usually served with spaghettini. This version is with pink salmon, or you can add any seafood you love like shrimp, tuna or sardines. So delish!
