Linguine is an elegant and classic pasta noodle that originated from Italy. It’s become such a staple pasta noodle that most have some stored in their kitchen. Now, there are tons of recipes you can make with this iconic pasta. One of the popular ingredients people love to enjoy it with are seafood, from shrimp to mussels, and–of course–salmon. Our recipe uses this protein-rich fish as its main topping, but we also have Linguine Fini with Shrimp, Olives and Pepperoncini Recipe which uses shrimp. And don’t forget our Mussels, White Wine and Garlic Over Pasta Recipe which creatively uses delicious mussels. But our recipe for today will combine the rich taste of smoked salmon with homemade creamy, butter garlic sauce. Its chunky tomato and parmesan cheese toppings also add a varied texture and taste that complements the dish well.

Our Linguine with Smoked Salmon is a mouthwatering feast fit for kings! If you already have some smoked salmon stored in the fridge, then this recipe is perfect. White sauce and seafood go together well. And there’s nothing like the taste of salmon swimming in butter, garlic, and creamy white pasta sauce!

Commonly Asked Questions

Is smoked salmon cooked or raw?

It depends on whether you have hot or cold smoked salmon. The former is already cooked because it’s been smoked at hot temperatures high enough to cook the salmon all the way through. On the other hand, the latter is cured in salt and smoked at lower temperatures, making it raw. Both also have different shelf-lives: cold smoked salmon’s is shorter because harmful bacteria can grow on it when stored too long. Meanwhile, hot smoked salmon lasts longer and doesn’t need to be stored in the fridge or freezer, as long as it’s not taken out of its packaging. So do be careful when selecting your smoked salmon because most smoked salmon is cold smoked.

What can I use as a substitute for salmon?

For this recipe, we used smoked salmon because of its distinct taste and texture. However, you can use seared tuna steak or garlic butter shrimp as substitutes. Both will give you that deep, umami flavor usually found in smoked salmon.



This linguine recipe of ours is no doubt an interesting way to serve smoked salmon you may have stored in your fridge. It’s perfect for lunch or dinners with loved ones. Oh, and did we already mention that its rich and creamy sauce goes perfectly with a glass (or two) of white wine?
