Reviews for Creamy Salmon Linguine
"I used all the ingredients but not necessarily in the order the suggest and a little more garlic. I also added a 1/2 cup of wine and mushrooms. . It was so amazingly delicious.!"
"I used 3 garlic cloves & a bit more lemon juice. Also a dash of cayenne pepper when cooking the salmon.Definitely a simple and delicious dish that I will make again soon."
"I made Creamy Salmon Linguine for dinner last night, but with a couple of substitutions. Instead of the broccoli I used about a cup and a half of frozen peas....I added them to the cream sauce prior to adding the salmon flakes. I also used 4 cloves of garlic and added about 1 1/2 tsps. of Dill.....delicious!!!!"
