Leftover Salmon Pasta

Leftover Salmon Pasta

You can transform leftover salmon into a pasta dish that is so good that you will want to make leftovers on purpose. If you don't have enough leftover salmon to serve the pasta as a main dish, serve a small plate of pasta along with 2-3 simple dishes to create a satisfying meal.  Click here for a menu idea.

Leftover salmon with lemon and thyme

Heavy whipping cream


1. Cut up the leftover salmon and add it to a frying pan along with any leftover juice

2. Add some heavy whipping cream. Just enough to create a sauce.

3. Warm the ingredients over medium heat and toss with pasta. 

You can add additional fresh thyme, parsley, a splash of white wine, lemon juice, or a pat or two of butter as variations. 


If the salmon is fresh, and your family doesn't care to eat the same thing two days in a row, you can serve this dish two days later.  

Many recipes I share have guidelines rather than exact measurements since I often cook "au pif" as we say in France, meaning by feel.
Your intuition is the magic touch to make something amazing. So read between the lines and make it yours   Write to me anytime if you have questions.
