Fettuccine with Salmon

This pasta dish has everything you need. The thick creamy sauce with the salty and spicy salmon really plays with your taste buds. 

WHAT YOU NEED:

Fettuccine pasta, 1/2 of the box 

1/3 Cup milk

1/4 Cup reserved pasta cooking water

16 oz Mozzarella and cheddar cheese combo

2 Heaping tablespoons cream cheese

1 Teaspoon garlic powder

2 Salmon fillet slices

Spices

Basil Parsley Oregano

Olive oil

 

Boil a pot of water and add fettuccine pasta with a drop of oil since they tend to stick together. I set the timer because I like the pasta al dente. 

While that was going, brush two pieces of salmon fillet with olive oil or you can use Pam oil spray. Before spicing it, I cut slits in the salmon so that it can cook on the skin and remain moist and it will be super easy to take apart later and add to the pasta. I used two spices together to coat the salmon. The first spice is the everyday spice from Trader Joe’s and it basically has a combination of salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder and the second one is a favorite of mine. It is the Ossie’s Louisiana Cajun spice (https://www.instagram.com/ossiesfish/ ). Coat the salmon and bake it on 350 degrees for around 25-30 minutes, uncovered.

Back to the pasta, drain the pasta and made the sauce in that same pot reserving some of the pasta cooking water. If you forget and drain it all you can also add flour to thicken the cheese sauce. To the pot I added the milk, pasta cooking water, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, cream cheese, garlic powder, sprinkle of each basil, parsley, and oregano. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well on medium low heat until there are no lumps. Add pasta to cheese and mix. When coated evenly, I put the pasta on a dish and added the salmon chunks on top. They go so well together! You can eat them separately too, but don’t be a party pooper. 😛

Tuna Patties

You might ask “what is so great about this recipe?” Well, let me tell ya that this recipe that I posted on Instagram is probably my most asked about and approved recipe yet!! I don’t know what it is, but everyone seems to love it and I could not be happier to share it here! It’s so simple and kid friendly! Let me stop rambling and give it to you already!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  •  2 Cans of tuna fish
  • 1 Chopped, sautéed, small onion
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tbsp mayo
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 2 Tbsp cornflake crumbs
  • 1/4 Cup shredded mozzarella cheese(or more. Can’t go wrong with cheese😉)
  • Sprinkle of Salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder

 

Mix all of the ingredients together. And I used the same pan that I sautéed the onion in to cook the patties in afterwards. I took a large spoonful of the mixture, flattened it a bit and fried it in a little oil until crispy. The cheese melts out a little and it’s seriously incredible! You can serve it in a bun or over salad or just eat alone. Can be frozen as well for easy dinner prep. You can bake these, too! Just spray both sides with Pam. Enjoy!
