Bring a large pot of water to a boil for cooking pasta. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place salmon on a baking sheet and sprinkle with lemon zest, salt and pepper. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.

Meanwhile, add pasta to boiling water and cook according to package instructions. Add peas to the cooking pasta 2 minutes before pasta is done. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta and peas and return to the pot. Stir in spinach, dill, lemon juice and fennel seeds and toss until well combined, adding pasta water as needed to moisten. Flake salmon into bite-size pieces and serve over pasta.
