Thank you for stopping by to see this delicious Blackened Salmon Pasta Alfredo.

This Blackened Salmon Pasta Alfredo is the perfect combination of spiciness with the blackened seasoning with the creamy homemade Alfredo.

I added sliced zucchini to make this an easy one-skillet recipe.



Salmon Is Good For You

Lately, I have become a huge blackened salmon fan.  I have always known that it was good for you, and it is great for your brain, but had no idea of the other benefits.  Salmon is not only good for your brain but your heart, hair, skin, cholesterol, and so much more.  It is a fantastic source of Omega-3.

Because I knew Salmon was good for me, I ate it but did not love it.  It was just O.K.  I did not love it because most of the time, in my opinion, salmon is bland.  Since I have been blackening my salmon, it is kicked up and so delicious.  Blackened salmon is now one of my favorite things to eat.  I love it so much I have used it in several recipes lately including this Blackened Salmon Pasta recipe.

Serve Blacken Salmon With Creamy Pasta

As you could imagine, this creamy homemade Alfredo is amazing by itself, but the combination of blackened salmon with the creamy pasta is fantastic.  To make this meal a one-skillet complete recipe, I added sliced zucchini.  It is easy to make, and you do not need to add anything else except for some bread to sop up every bit of this terrific dish.

    Your ingredients calls for 1-1/2 cups whipping cream and 1-1/2 cups half and half, but the instructions doesn’t say when to add the half and half. Waiting to hear from you before trying this recipe 🙂
