Creamy salmon pasta

Creamy salmon pasta is a decadent and flavorful dish that combines tender salmon with a creamy sauce and pasta. The salmon is usually cooked separately and then added to the creamy sauce, which is made with ingredients like cream, butter, garlic, and Parmesan cheese. The sauce is then tossed with cooked pasta to create a rich and satisfying dish.

To make creamy salmon pasta, start by cooking your pasta according to package instructions. While the pasta is cooking, season your salmon fillets with salt, pepper, and any other desired seasonings. In a separate pan, cook the salmon until it’s just cooked through. Remove the salmon from the pan and set it aside.

In the same pan, add butter, garlic, and cream, and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly. Stir in Parmesan cheese until melted and smooth. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and toss to coat. Flake the cooked salmon into bite-sized pieces and gently fold it into the pasta and sauce mixture.

Serve the creamy salmon pasta hot, garnished with fresh herbs like parsley or dill, and a squeeze of lemon juice for a bright and fresh flavor. This dish is perfect for a special occasion or a cozy night in, and is sure to impress with its rich and creamy texture.
