Salmon and Broccoli Linguine Recipe

Salmon and Broccoli Linguine Recipe

This salmon and broccoli linguine dish can be on your table within just twenty minutes, full of the fresh flavours of salmon, lemon, broccoli and dill. This recipe is the perfect mid-week meal, filling hungry tummies fast!

Here is what you will need to make this quick and easy pasta dish.

Linguine pasta, shallots, lemon, dill, garlic, cream, olive oil, broccoli and salmon.

I just love cooking with hot smoked salmon – it is absolutely delicious. You can buy it for about $8 or so in the cold food section where you would buy the thinly sliced smoked salmon. It is dearer than tinned salmon, but still fairly inexpensive when you consider the cost of meat for a family meal.

You can also substitute a 415g tin of red salmon or even tuna for the hot smoked salmon if you prefer.

Cook the linguine in a big pot of salted boiling water as per packet directions. Add the broccoli florets to the pasta for the last three minutes of cooking time, then drain and reserve 1/3 cup of the cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, in a big frying pan add the shallots, lemon rind and garlic and fry until fragrant. Add the cream and some lemon juice and bring to a simmer. Then add the salmon, dill, reserved cooking liquid and pasta mixture and toss to combine.

Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately with extra chopped fresh dill.

My kids loved this meal, which wasn’t surprising because they love most pasta dishes. We’ll definitely be making it again soon, it was just so easy!
