Spaghetti and smoked salmon tossed with a simple basil cream sauce.Wild Alaska Smoked Salmon Pasta – So Easy, So Tasty

Boaters, Try This Recipe: Wild Alaska Smoked Salmon Pasta. This dish is one of our simplest to date- so simple in fact, that we can give you the recipe in one sentence: boil the pasta, puree the sauce ingredients, reduce the sauce ingredients and coat the pasta and smoked salmon in the sauce. All of this takes about 10 minutes.

By reducing cream and milk with cheese it creates a rich, creamy sauce that coats each strand of noodle without any added flour or butter; by pureeing basil into the sauce, it gives the sauce a gorgeous green hue and pesto-like flavor without adding any effort. The sauce then gets tossed together with the noodles and salmon, coating each strand of pasta, while gently cooking the salmon with the residual heat. You’ve gotta try it!

11 ounces dried spaghetti
1.5 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano
1.5 ounces basil
