Pasta with Salmon & Creamy Blue Cheese Sauce | recipe on MarlaMeridith.com

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.

 Garlic Salt

1

Cook pasta according to package directions. Add a splash of olive oil to a large frying pan. Season salmon with some garlic salt, smoked paprika & pepper. Pan sear salmon over medium high heat until cooked about 80%, about 6-8 minutes flipping one time (it should be really pink in the center.) Remove salmon from the pan, take the skin off and roughly chop or flake the fish with a fork.

2

Heat the same pan over medium heat add the sour cream & blue cheese. Cook for a few minutes until creamy, stirring a few times with a silicone spatula. Gently fold in the chopped salmon to make the sauce. Add the pasta to the pan. Season to taste and serve with chopped cilantro or parsley.

I used a spinach/chive pasta that went really well with this sauce. Feel free to experiment with your favorite pasta.
