Tofu Spaghetti with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Salmon

Growing up in the sun soaked coast of the south of Italy, sun-dried food has been a common ingredient in my family’s cooking. Sun-dried fruits, herbs and of course sun-dried tomatoes.
My grandmother used to make a delicious pasta with stir-fried salmon and sun-dried tomatoes, it was so flavorful yet so light and healthy.

Since I’ve moved to China I’ve tried to do a lot of cooking with tofu, an ingredient not easy to find in my small hometown in Italy.
The other day I went to the grocery shop downstairs my house and saw this tofu cut and shaped like spaghetti which immediately cached my attention. I grabbed a bag and brought it home and soon after decided to use it into a modified version of my grandma’s salmon and sun-dried tomato spaghetti recipe!

This is what happens when east meets west: a combination of the best of both worlds into a healthy meal!

Hope you like it!
