Dinner in no Time!

My husband and I loved this recipe! The salmon came out so tasty and moist! We used mushroom tortellini since we didn't have any other pasta on hand, and it was a nice complement to the fish. We can't wait to make it for company - the ease of this recipe will give us more time to enjoy our guests!

Easy and Good

Both my husband and I had gotten sick of fixing salmon in the oven, so when I came across this recipe I figured it was worth a try. It was wonderful! Poached salmon gets cooked in a way that keeps it moist and the alfredo sauce is a great partner to this fish. Very easy recipe to make and well worth it.

Fabulous - even for a crowd!

I had to multiply the ingredients by FIVE (except the pasta and jars of sauce!). I cooked up a little over 4 lbs of salmon for my large family.... oh, but it was worth it! I used a large wok on the stovetop to poach the fish. I used a combination of white wine, chicken broth AND water to make enough liquid to poach in. The combination was great. -- I didn't have linquinie on hand, so instead used gemelli pasta which was great. -- Only one of my 9 didn't like the sauce (6yr old), but that was easily remedied with another sauce from the fridge. -- HINT: I added a ground vegetable spice mix, fresh ground salt and freshly ground pepper to the salmon pieces, put it in a large covered dutch oven with a cup of water inside to keep it moist while the pasta finished and I waited for the family to arrive. It kept the fish fabulously moist and delicious. -- The fresh parsley (10 min old!) and the shredded carrots saute'd then coated on the pasta is something I will do regularly!!

Very tasty & so easy!

After a trip to Seattle where I had salmon fixed every way I thought it could be, I came across this recipe and decided to try it. It was delightful! I disagree with the person who thought it was bland. My whole family enjoyed it!
