I’m lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest, where we have really wonderful local smoked salmon.

Mine comes from Northern Fish Products from my hometown of Tacoma, Washington.  I had intended to enjoy the smoked salmon on top of some of my Blue Rose Dairy goat cheese on crackers, but instead used all the goat cheese for stuffed chicken breasts.

Alas, the salmon has found a new home in one of my favorite dishes: Smoked Salmon Pasta.  I’ve had a similar dish at Bahama Breeze and was inspired to try it at home.

Okay, so this is not super diet-friendly, but it’s filling so you don’t have to eat a giant bowl of it (but you can if you want to).

Tips:

The nutmeg adds a rich flavor to the cream sauce.  Start with 1/2 tsp., and add more to increase the warm nutmeg flavor.

I like to keep my salmon pretty chunky in the pasta, so you can enjoy the texture of the smoked salmon.

Remember, when you add the salmon to the sauce, you don’t want to cook it.  Just warm it through.  The salmon is already cooked by being smoked.

Yes, you are a lucky girl to be living in the NW! Fresh Salmon in the land-locked Midwest is hard to come by so when I’m lucky enough to find it, I partake – and I don’t give a hoot about any ol’ diet . . . at least until I’ve cleaned my plate!

I took a big mouthful and this was was a tasty satisfying dish. The smoked salmon had a wonderful taste and the sauce stuck to the noodles!
