1/1 Photo of Smoky Salmon Fettuccine
This was first made for me by a friend, and I've tweaked it over the years to make it my own. Although it is by no means a healthy recipe to have in your everyday rotation, it makes a very easy and impressive dish to serve for company. The original recipe did not call for mushrooms, so feel free to subsitute another vegetable or leave them out completely. If you like a spicier dish, add chili flakes to taste with the onions, or a bit of hot sauce after the alfredo is added. If you don't want to use liquid smoke, you can replace the fresh salmon fillet with prepared smoked salmon- just begin the recipe with step seven. Serve with garlic bread and a green salad for a complete meal.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Prepare your grill, or preheat your broiler for high heat.
- 2Season the salmon with salt and pepper to taste.
- 3Drizzle the liquid smoke over the salmon.
- 4Grill or broil the salmon until it is just barely done. (Note- when I use the grill for this, I place the salmon skin side down on a piece of foil so that it doesn't stick to the grill.).
- 5Remove the salmon for the heat, and set aside to cool slightly.
- 6When it is cool enough to handle, remove the skin (if needed) and break the fish into bite sized pieces.
- 7Cook the pasta as directed on the package.
- 8Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- 9Add the onions, and season with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. If you would like to add some heat, add a pinch of chili flakes at this time.
- 10Cook the onions, stirring frequently, for one minute.
- 11Add the mushrooms, and continue to cook, until the onions are soft and golden.
- 12Add the alfredo sauce, and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
- 13Add the reserved salmon, and gently fold into the sauce.
- 14If the sauce is too thick, add a little of the pasta cooking water to thin it to your liking.
- 15Taste the sauce, and add salt, pepper, or liquid smoke if necessary.
- 16When the pasta is al dente, drain and add to the sauce, tossing gently, so the salmon doesn't break up further.
- 17Serve immediately.
