Introduction

Picture this: a creamy, luxurious pasta dish, infused with the delicate flavors of salmon, kissed with a hint of lemon, and finished with a flourish of fresh herbs. This, my friends, is Marry Me Salmon Pasta – a dish so delectable, it’s been known to inspire declarations of love at first bite. In this blog post, we’ll explore the irresistible charm of Marry Me Salmon Pasta, its origins, and how you can recreate this culinary romance in your own kitchen.

Alright, let’s be honest… Marry Me this and that is really just Tuscan Salmon, Chicken etc with a new name lol. Welcome to the internet, where old will become new again. Either way, I’m not complaining.. because whatever you want to call it… it’s delicious!

At the heart of Marry Me Salmon Pasta is, of course, the salmon – tender, flaky, and full of flavor. The salmon is seared for color and finished in the oven, while the same skillet is used for a creamy sauce infused with garlic, shallots, white wine, and a touch of lemon zest, which adds brightness and freshness to the dish. The sauce is then tossed with cooked pasta – preferably a long, ribbon-like variety such as fettuccine or linguine – and finished with a generous sprinkling of fresh herbs such as parsley or dill.

Begin by seasoning your salmon filets with your preferred seasoning blend – today I am using my All Purpose and Lemon Bae but feel free to use things like salt, pepper, garlic, onion, and cajun seasoning

Dice your shallot, garlic, and sundried tomatoes and set aside until later for the sauce.

For the salmon, we are going to sear it in a hot skillet and baste it with butter the way the good lord intended, lol. Finish the salmon in a 400 degree oven until it hits your desired internal temp (for me that’s about 130-135 degrees)

In the same skillet, add the shallot, garlic, and sun-dried tomatoes. Cook until tender (about 2-3 minutes) and then add in the spinach.

After the spinach cooks down, add pasta water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and mix in the heavy cream. Mix to combine and start to incorporate the parmesan cheese. Season to taste and add in the pasta.

Plate the pasta and then salmon filet on top. Garnish with parmesan and parsley and enjoy.
