Pasta night with grilled salmon fettuccine
November 8, 2016
So we had another of those highly anticipated pasta nights. This time, it was pasta night with grilled salmon fettuccine and whoever created this amazing pasta (was it me?), thank you, you’re a genius! Because if shrimp scampi pasta is the new love in town, salmon fettuccine is definitely an unforgettable old flame.
We’ve been eating a lot of salmon lately. We buy a huge salmon fillet and technically it’s big enough for 3 or 4 meals. So it’s like we always have salmon sitting around and it’s really convenient for lazy nights and most importantly, there are no bones to contend with.
We heart salmon so much that it doesn’t even make sense any more to go outside for a couple of mouthfuls of salmon (?) which might or might not keep a cat full for, oh, about 10 minutes tops. C’mon!
At any rate, here comes our big ol’ dinner portion grilled to perfection with the moistness still intact. Oooh man, I wanna eat up this photo like right now! *droolzzz*
Sometimes it’s nice to pretend we’re at a fancy restaurant. “I’d like to have the grilled salmon with fettuccine please!” and have it served with my signature fettuccine in a red wine-red sauce with mushrooms and tomatoes. That red wine definitely ups the ante on flavor, I tell ya.
Yup, I could literally eat this every day. Not even kiddin’! Confession: sometimes we do this twice a week *breaks out into evil laugh*! After all, pasta is supposed to be good for you, maybe even better than your regular noodles but don’t look at me, I’m a die-hard carb freak either way. I just can’t help myself!
