Ingredients

  • 8 ounces of linguine pasta
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Start by cooking the linguine pasta according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper, then add them to the skillet, skin-side down. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Remove the salmon from the skillet and set it aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium-low, then add the heavy cream, lemon zest, and lemon juice to the skillet. Stir to combine and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Return the cooked salmon to the skillet, breaking it into smaller pieces with a fork. Add chopped dill and stir gently to combine.
  6. Finally, add the cooked linguine pasta to the skillet and toss everything together until the pasta is coated in the creamy lemon dill sauce.
  7. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.
  8. Serve hot, garnished with extra dill and a slice of lemon for an extra burst of freshness.
