If you are new to making easy fish recipes, you will agree that there is nothing hard about this one. In fact, it is a perfect recipe for you to make if you have not made many fish recipes before. There are not that many ingredients and salmon is not difficult to work with. Check the fish for pin-bones before you begin and pick them out with your fingers. Most salmon filets are bone-free but it is always a good idea to check, just to make sure.
If you are in a rush or you prefer it, you can use smoked salmon in this recipe instead of fresh salmon. If you are inclined to do that, you just need to cut the salmon into strips and stir it into the linguine when you add the baby spinach. One small package of smoked salmon should be plenty.
This simple recipe is open to adaptation. Perhaps you fancy adding some black olives and cherry tomatoes to the mixture or even some broccoli or mushrooms. This easy salmon recipe features red onion, lemon, spinach, fennel seed and more. The flavor is complex yet well-balanced and it is quick and easy to put together. The chicken broth gives this meal a creamy texture without the need for extra cream.
- 1 lb salmon filets, in 2 inch pieces
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon fennel seed
- 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil

Chicken broth is a good alternative to cream if you want to make a low-fat meal, since it gives the dish creaminess without upping the fat content too much. The combination of baby spinach, salmon, linguine, lemon and more gives this salmon linguine recipe a gourmet flavor and it is colorful too. You can see from the picture how the shaved parmesan and fresh parsley finish the dish off perfectly and you can imagine how much more colorful it would be if you were to add some halved cherry tomatoes and black olives to it, but it’s up to you whether or not you wish to add extra ingredients.
