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.

Photo Description:

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.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
