Food Hussy Recipe: Salmon & Mushroom Alfredo

Sometimes you look in the fridge and think - what the hell am I going to have for dinner??? This is exacerbated when you're cooking for one. Many times it ends in tortilla chips and salsa for dinner - but tonight was different! 

I had mushrooms, cooked linguine and leftover salmon. I'd made one big piece of salmon for dinner the night before and thought - oh I'll figure out what to do with it. And I did!

 I also had Parmesan cheese and cream in the fridge - so I decided to wing some alfredo! I've never really had alfredo on salmon but I like both so what the hell!

I sauteed the mushrooms in butter first - then added the cream. I'm not even completely sure on the amounts - it depends on how many people you're making it for - but I'd say for one it was 1/3-1/2 cup.

 I let that cook for a bit and then added 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese. Stir & simmer - it thickened up quick. I used salted butter so didn't even really need to add salt. While this was simmering - I reheated the pasta and salmon in the microwave for a couple of minutes.

And voila - ten minutes and dinner was served! It was delicious! Salmon - especially reheated can be a little dry - so it was great to have a sauce for it. And I'm a sucker for mushrooms - can't go wrong there. There's no real mystery to Alfredo - it's very simple - and if you don't have cream - you can use milk - you just need a little extra butter to make it thick.
