Salmon Alfredo Pasta Recipe

Seafood
3: Salmon, fillets

Produce
3 cups: Baby spinach
5 cloves: Garlic
1: Lemon
1 tbsp: Parsley, fresh
1: Shallot

Pasta & grains
8 oz: Fettuccine noodles, dried

Baking & spices
1: Salt and pepper

Oils & vinegars
1 tbsp: Olive oil
5 oz: Sun-dried tomato in oil, jarred

Dairy
2 tbsp: Butter
3/4 cup: Half and half
1 cup: Heavy cream
1/2 cup: Parmesan, grated

Liquids
1/3 cup: Reserved pasta cooking water

Instructions:

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the fettuccine and cook until al dente, cooked through but still slightly firm. Be sure to reserve at least 1/3 cup of the pasta cooking water to add to the sauce later.
  • While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season each of the salmon filets on both sides with salt and pepper, and sear in the hot pan, flesh-side down, for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. I like to leave it slightly undercooked since it will carry on cooking off the stove. Once salmon filets are cooked, remove from the pan and set aside. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  • In the same pan, melt the butter (no need to clean the skillet out). Add in the garlic and saute for about one minute, being careful not to burn. Add the shallot and saute until translucent. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and stir for 1-2 minutes. Pour in 1/3 cup reserved pasta cooking water, and allow the sauce to reduce down slightly.
  • Reduce heat to low, add the heavy cream and half and half, and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Season the cream sauce with salt and pepper, to taste. Add in the baby spinach a handful at a time and allow to wilt in the sauce. Add in the parmesan cheese and stir until melted into the sauce, about 1 minute.
  • Add the cooked fettuccine to the sauce and toss to fully coat. Using tongs, Serve up the pasta, leaving behind some of the sauce. Top each serving of pasta with a salmon filet, sprinkle with the parsley, and spoon the sauce over each filet. Top with additional fresh grated parmesan and a squeeze of lemon, if desired.

The dish is famous in America and hardly known in Italy, but it is actually Italian, not Italian-American, at least originally. It was invented .

Cooking tip for salmon : preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side down, on a non-stick baking sheet or in a non-stick pan with an oven-proof handle. Bake until salmon is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes.
