How To make Salmon Alfredo
Start with slicing the salmon into cubes. Toss them in cajun seasoning. You will need to cook the pasta separately before adding them to the sauce. Make sure salmon is cooked through. At this stage, you can also shred the fish if you like.
Now, we will make the basic alfredo sauce. Start with sauteing some onions and garlic in butter, and fry until soft and translucent. Stir in cream and sprinkle with oregano. Don’t forget to season with salt and pepper. Add some pasta water if needed. Let this mixture simmer for about 5-6 minutes. Add in a generous amount of grated parmesan and chopped parsley leaves. Give this a quick stir. Finally, add salmon and pasta. Toss.
For the final garnish, add a generous amount of parmesan and parsley.
