Salmon Alfredo

In this post, I present to you a delightful pasta Alfredo recipe that deviates from the traditional ingredients of heavy cream and butter.
Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time15 minutes
Total Time30 minutes
Servings: 3 people


  • 100 g spaghetti (uncooked weight)
  • 300 salmon fillets, cut into rounds
  • 30 g Parmesan cheese
  • 2 medium-sized zucchinis (approximately 300g each)
  • 1 ½ cups skimmed milk
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Prepare the zucchini noodles using a spiralizer. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use a vegetable peeler to create thin strips resembling spaghetti. Set the zucchini noodles aside.
  • Cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions
  • In a shallow dish, marinate the salmon rounds with crushed garlic, a pinch of salt and pepper. Let them sit for a few minutes to absorb the flavors.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Place the marinated salmon rounds in the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned and cooked to your desired doneness. Remove the salmon from the skillet and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the zucchini noodles and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Remove the zucchini from the skillet and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the skimmed milk and cornstarch until well combined and no lumps remain. Lower the heat to medium and pour the milk mixture into the skillet. Stir continuously until the sauce thickens, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the Parmesan cheese to the sauce and stir until melted and well incorporated.
  • Return the cooked spaghetti, sautéed zucchini, and seared salmon to the skillet with the sauce. Gently toss everything together until well coated.
  • Cook for an additional minute, allowing the ingredients to heat through and the flavors to meld together. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve the Salmon Alfredo Pasta immediately, garnished with additional Parmesan cheese if desired.
  • Enjoy your guilt-free and delicious Salmon Alfredo Pasta!
