Smoked Salmon Fettuccine

Mmmmm, smoked salmon is such a delicious treat to eat now and again! It's something that we can't have in the house too often because it lasts about 2 minutes once opened. And it's not like it's bargain priced either!

But oh how tasty to enjoy! And when I'm going to splurge on smoked salmon, it has to star in the show. I searched around- yeah, my normal neighborhood of Allrecipes.com- and found something that had so many wonderful ingredients.

It was in fact wonderful! And the salmon did shine...


Creamy Smoked Salmon Fettuccine
Based from AllRecipes.com

  • Box of Fettuccine Pasta
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • 2 Tbsp. Flour
  • 2/3 C. Milk
  • 1/3 C. Cream
  • 1/2 C. Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2+ C. Smoked Salmon, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 C. Fresh Spinach, chopped into strips
  • 1 Tbsp. Capers
  • 3+ Tbsp. Sun-dried Tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • Heavy hand of pepper

  1. Cook and drain the pasta according to package.
  2. In a separate sauce pot, melt the butter.
  3. Blend in the flour until a smooth paste forms. Whisk in milk to make a thick sauce.
  4. Stir in cream and parmesan cheese until cheese is melted.
  5. Add in the salmon, spinach, capers, tomatoes, and oregano.
  6. Pour in delicious sauce onto the warm, drained pasta and mix until fettuccine is coated.
  7. Serve in a nice big bowl with a solid grating of fresh black pepper on top- yum!
