Over the past couple of months it has been necessary to limit my time in the kitchen. It’s just not safe until my medication has me stabilized. Fortunately I have had only two incidents in the kitchen and they were several weeks ago. What is a recipe creator supposed do? I passed my whisk to my sweet hubby and he has been cooking a lot ever since this all started. One thing I always enjoy is breakfast for dinner and my hubby can cook a delicious breakfast like a rock star! I am now stepping back into the kitchen (under the watchful eye of my hubby) and keeping my recipes and cooking simple. I recently made this easy and delicious Salmon Alfredo. It is great for dinner or for lunch. If you are not on a restricted diet please see Katie’s Tidbits below.
What You Need
16 oz linguini or fettucine pasta (uncooked)
6-8 ounce cooked Salmon (cut into bite size pieces)
3 Tbsp. canola oil *
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
¼ Cup chicken stock ( or vegetable stock)
2 Cups lactose free milk (or soy milk)*
2 Cloves garlic (crushed)
1 tsp salt ( optional)
2 tsp White pepper
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
Fresh chopped parsley for garnish (optional)
Medium sauce pan
Large serving bowl.
Before You Start- Bring pasta water to a boil and prepare pasta according to package directions.
Lets Make it! While the pasta is boiling, heat oil in saucepan over medium high heat; add garlic and sauté until soft. Add chicken stock and milk and stir to combine. Gradually add flour a little at a time and whisk well to keep from lumping. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and add salmon. Reduce heat and cook long enough to heat the salmon (about 10-15 minutes) and thicken the sauce.
Drain pasta through a colander. Add pasta to large serving bowl, pour salmon Alfredo sauce over pasta and stir to combine. Garnish with parsley and serve.
Katies Tid Bits* if you are not on a restricted diet-Add 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese to sauce at the same time you add the milk. Use ½ cream and ½ milk .Use olive oil. Substitute white wine instead of stock. Sprinkle with fresh Parmesan cheese before serving.
