Penne al Salmone


Salmon, Heavy Cream, Parmesan, Penne, White Wine, Butter, Garlic, & Seasonings

Step 1

Cook your penne pasta according to package instructions. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Generously salt the pasta water, add your pasta, and cook until al dente. Drain and set aside.

Step 2

Sear the salmon for about 5 minutes per side. Flip the salmon once a golden crust has formed on the flesh side of the salmon.

Step 3

Heat the butter over medium to low heat. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 4

Add the dry white wine and bring to a simmer.

Step 5

Once simmering, pour in the heavy cream. Let the heavy cream come up to a gentle simmer over low heat.

Step 6

Add all of the shredded parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy.

Step 7

Turn off the heat and stir in the dried oregano, salt, and pepper.

Toss the cooked pasta into the cream sauce. Transfer the pasta to 4-6 serving bowls (or one large serving bowl). Top each serving of pasta with a portion of seared salmon and fresh basil. Serve and enjoy!
