Garlic Salmon Linguine Tips

How else can you eat canned pink salmon?

Because it’s so convenient and versatile, you can eat canned pink salmon in so many ways.

How do you spice up canned salmon?

Because of its mild flavor, it's easy to spice up canned salmon. Mix in some finely chopped onion, red or green pepper, a dash or two of hot sauce, or, if you're something of a heat-seeker, maybe even some finely chopped jalapeno pepper. Pair it or mix into some spicy kimchi, a health-food superstar!. Salmon also pairs excellently with a variety of herbs: dill, fennel, tarragon, parsley and thyme to name a few.

How much linguine do I need per person?

Count on serving 2 ounces of linguine per person. We have a “trick” for easily measuring out this amount: Consider the diameter of a quarter, then stand a handful of linguine on-end, vertically, in your fist that looks about that size. That's one serving! And check out some other helpful tips about measuring pasta perfectly every time. Research contributed by Mark Neufang, Taste of Home Culinary Assistant
