Easy Creamy Lemony Salmon Pasta Recipe

Posted on

Quick pasta recipes are my go to, and when I post them on Instagram, everyone is always asking me for a recipe, and I rarely have one. Mostly because I am looking at our fridge and pantry, and trying to figure out a meal that’s simple, has some green, and uses up what I have.

Serves: 2 SERVINGS

A quick and easy pasta recipe you can whip up with six ingredients!

  • ½ pound spaghetti or any pasta
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ bag spinach, or whatever greens you have
  • half a can evaporated milk
  • ½ lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 piece seared salmon, chunked into large pieces
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • grated cheese, to your liking


  1. Boil a pot of water with salt and cook pasta al dente.
  2. While pasta cooks, in a sauté pan over high heat, melt butter and toss the spinach until it wilts.
  3. Add milk, lemon juice and zest, and salt and pepper. Season to taste.
  4. Add in cooked pasta and salmon, and a splash of the hot pasta water.
  5. Swirl until everything is combined, top with cheese and enjoy!
