I wanted to post another cocktail recipe today. But since I posted one on Wednesday I figured you probably need somethin’ to eat. Y’all like pasta a whole lot and I came up with fine medley of carbs meets salmon & creamy blue cheese.
Let’t take a look…
Isn’t there some rule somewhere that seafood should not be pared with cheese?
I tend to disagree. Try this salmon with blue cheese sauce and you will too.
Do you like cilantro? I love it. Add a handful to this recipe for extra fresh flavor.
If you don’t dig it add some flat leaf Italian parsley. All’s good….they look the same but sure do have very different flavor.
What you got with this dish is comfort food mixed with a splash of gourmet flavors.
This pasta is perfect for family meals and al fresco parties. Enjoy it with some Skinny Strawberry Lime Punch.
It comes together quickly and the ingredients are super easy to find. Energy packed salmon balances out the heavier pasta really nicely.
Whip this up over the weekend or for those busy weeknight meals ~ make some extra for lunch too while your at it. Serve hot or chilled like a pasta salad.

Beautiful salmon fillet. This tasty pasta dish looks wonderful.
Thanks so much Rosa!
What a perfect pasta! LOVE!
I like the sound of the blue cheese and salmon combo!
this pasta looks fantastic Marla!
Yes, I always hear from Italian friends that is a big no-no to pair seafood with cheese, but sometimes I just can’t resist. This sounds like something I could happily eat at least once a week.
Thanks Dara! Resistance is futile eh?!
This dish looks so yummy. I have just successfully turned my man into a salmon eater so perhaps he will like this pasta. I know I would!
Hopefully you can try it soon!
This looks seriously amazing! Pasta and seafood are perfect together! Yum!
Always, right??!! Glad you think so too!
Blue cheese and salmon sounds wonderful, I bet smoked salmon will go great with blue cheese, too. I happen to have lots of really good smoked FRESH salmon in my refrigerator directly from Seattle seafood market. And thanks for linking to my recipe!
Yum! I bet you get awesome salmon in Seattle. I always hear about your amazing markets and yet I have never been. Someday 🙂
When i was at Big Potluck last week, I had the most incredible blue cheese on crackers. It seriously hit the spot. Your sauce sounds heavenly and gorgeous meal!
Thanks Averie!! Gosh I bet that potluck was a blast….with Ii coulda been there 🙂
I just made a salmon/pasta casserole that is so similar to this!
I think EVERYTHING should be paired with cheese! 🙂 Great-looking dish, Marla.
I usually add only shrimp with pasta but this does sound gourmet. And now that you mentioned about the cheese and fish pairing, I remember reading it somewhere. As long as the food taste good, who cares about all those rules 😉
Exactly how I like to do things when it comes to cooking. If it tastes great…forget about “the rules.” Shrimp & pasta are always a great combo!
Sounds very tasty to me! I’m running through my spouse’s favorites before he leaves, and we just polished off my salmon and artichoke dip. I think there’s room in the line up for another salmon dish.
Wonderfully styled photos.
Thanks Kirsten! Your salmon & artichoke dip sounds awesome!
What a lovely pasta dish! I love blue cheese and the salmon and pasta sound wonderful.
Thanks Maureen…hopefully you can try it soon 🙂
Looks delicious! Making me SO hungry!
I’ve never combined any fish with cheese and it’s not something usual in our cuisine, but I trust your taste, I must give it a try!
Salmon is one of my favorite fishes. I have got to try it with blue cheese – another one of my favorites, Marla! I love everything about this pasta dish. I must try salmon with blue cheese!
You can’t go wrong with salmon. I need to try putting some in my pasta. Looks yum!
Ok, I have each ingredient and I’m already cooking pasta. Thank you for tonight dinner 🙂
We had it and it was delicious. I love the addition of blue cheese and cilantro adds a good taste. Thank you for sharing 🙂
Hi Marta! So glad you tried my recipe & had great success!!! Thanks for stopping by again 🙂
You can never have to many great recipes for cocktails… or pasta! We’d be fast friends 🙂 This dish is just oozing with wonderful flavors!
Oh, this looks delicious 🙂 my husband would definitely eat this up!
Looks so delicious and beautiful!! xxoo, Andrea
I know it’s rule and all…but I love cheese with my seafood. Of course, I love cheese with pretty much anything
Yum! That looks sensational! Will be putting this on my to-make list. Thanks for sharing.
This salmon fillet look absolutely incredible! I can wait until I have some time to experiment myself! 🙂
Love the flavors in this… looks delicious!
I know of a few Mexican dishes where fish is paired with cheese, and they’re WONDERFUL. But I’ve always been a rebel. This looks delicious!
Not true that seafood doesn’t work with cheese….http://castellocheeseusa.com/recipe/smoked-salmon-and-spinach-risotto/
This looks so good. I might have to copy you and use the green linguine!
