How to cook the Salmon


First off, make sure you are using a high quality, fresh salmon filet for the best flavor. For this recipe, you’ll need to cook the salmon prior to adding it to the pasta. The best way to do this is to bake it at 450°F for about 12 minutes. Baking it will give it the flakey texture we want for this dish and it will not make it too crispy like pan or air frying would. We want the salmon to be soft, juicy and tender.

How to make the Cream Sauce


We make the cream sauce in a large skillet on the stovetop. Start by making a roux with butter, flour and cream, that will give us the thick, creamy base for the sauce. Stir the garlic into the cream sauce and then thin it out with some vegetable or seafood stalk. Bring the sauce to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. At this point the sauce should be thick enough that it coats the back of a spoon, but not so thick that it will not easily coat the fettuccine. Season with salt and pepper. After you have added everything to the pasta, as a last step you will add fresh lemon juice to give it a nice kick of citrus that pairs nicely with the salmon.

Putting it all together


Once your cream sauce is ready, it’s time to add in the cooked fettuccine. Use tongs to add the fettuccine into the sauce and toss to coat evenly. Next add in the spinach, artichoke, salmon and capers, toss again so everything is coated evenly. Once the spinach is cooked and the artichokes are warmed the dish is ready! Serve immediately for the creamiest results! Make it a meal with a simple green salad and some fresh bread on the side!
