“Inspired by my favorite local Italian restaurant's secret recipe. After some trial and error, I think I have it. Creamy Alfredo sauce and salmon complement each other well. Spinach adds great color.” - by Shane Roberts
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add fettuccine, and cook for 11 to 13 minutes or until al dente; drain.
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, and blend with milk. Mix in the flour to thicken. Gradually stir in the Parmesan cheese until melted.
- Crumble salmon into the butter mixture. Stir in the spinach, capers, sun-dried tomatoes, and oregano. Cook and stir about 3 minutes, until heated through. Serve over the cooked pasta.

"Loved this recipe! We are cutting back the bad fats from our diets, so there were some modifications... all successful: I used 2 Tablespoons butter, rather than 4. For milk, I used 1% milk... canne..." See mored non-fat milk would have been good, too. For the Parmesan cheese, I used the non-fat kind that is sold in a shaker can. I used leftover poached salmon (skin removed), rather than smoked. And, I was out of fresh spinach, so thawed a box of frozen chopped spinach and used it. This tasted so rich, with a wonderful blend of flavors. It is easy to eat low fat foods, when they taste this great! Thanks for sharing the recipe Shane."
"Good recipe. I'll make this again. I took the suggestion from another poster and added a little cream cheese. I only had skim milk and the sauce wouldn't have been creamy without it. I also used fre..." See moreshly grated parmesan; I wouldn't used the canned stuff. Used about 1 tsp of dried oregano since I didn't have fresh oregano on hand. Baked salmon in the oven rather than using smoked salmon (seasoned with a little olive oil and italian seasoning). Also added some toasted almond slivers (very nice addition!). I would have preferred pine nuts but did not have any. Otherwise, followed the recipe and we were pleased. My husband doesn't like fish so I put very little salmon in his bowl. He actually added more fish! I couldn't believe it."
"This recipe really does taste like something you would order at a good restaurant. It was very easy to make. The only thing I would change is to maybe add a little white wine to the sauce. The blen..." See mored of oregano, capers, & smoked salmon was wonderful. I used fresh oregano from my herb garden & it was perfect. I also used bow tie pasta instead of fettuccine. It was very pretty & would be great to serve to company with a salad & crescent rolls."
