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.
How do you make Alfredo sauce?
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 or half and half – you just need a little extra butter to make it thick.
