How To Make Creamy Lemon White Wine Pasta with Blackened Salmon
Note: Full list of ingredients, their amounts, and instructions can be found in the recipe card below.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Mix the blackening seasonings together. Coat the salmon fillets in a thin layer of olive oil then coat the tops and sides with the blackening seasoning mixture.
Place the fillets on a foil-lined baking sheet with the skin side down.
Bake the salmon for about 10 to 12 minutes or until pink and flaky. Do not overbake!
At the same time, boil the pasta according to the package directions.
Meanwhile, melt butter over medium heat. Then, sauté minced garlic until softened, about 2 minutes.
Add the white wine and lemon juice and simmer for 1 minute.
Next, add the chicken broth, heavy cream, salt, and pepper and gently simmer for another 5 minutes until it has thickened.
Toss the pasta in the cream sauce.
Remove the skin from the salmon. It should easily peel away.
Serve the pasta topped with the salmon, extra lemon wedges, and some chopped parsley.
Storage & Reheating
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Reheating cream-based pasta can be tricky. If you reheat it in the microwave, the sauce will separate. It still tastes good but it loses its creaminess.
The best way to reheat creamy pasta is on the stove with some extra cream or even a splash of milk. Just add the pasta, salmon, and a splash of cream or milk to the pan and heat over medium-low just until it's all heated through.
