  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon, leek, onion, and garlic, and fry until fragrant, about 2 minutes. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream, sour cream, and cornstarch; stir into the skillet. Stir in the lemon zest, pepper, and paprika. Cook, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes, until sauce is thickened and salmon flakes easily with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add fettuccine and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and toss with the salmon sauce. Top with Parmesan cheese to serve.

This was just ok for us...second salmon recipe that I have tried in a row that disappointed us. I followed this recipe exactly and didn't change a thing. The sauce was too thick and it didn't ...

I has great potential, but as written it was not that great. The lemon gave it a weird taste! I would either cut it way down or omit it completely. The sauce was too thick with "stuff". I had to...

My husband has sworn off shrimp linguine, so this was a great substitute "fish with pasta" meal. I added some chopped asparagus to the skillet in the first step, along with some mushrooms. I al...

I had some leftover grilled salmon, but I used all the rest of the ingredients and it was just awesome. Now I can't wait to try it with fresh salmon. I also added fresh parsley and it gave it ...

I loved this recipe, and my three year old liked it as well. The only reason it didn't get five stars is because my husband didn't care for it. I used lemon pepper instead of the lemon and pep...
