  • ▢4 ounces of uncooked pasta
  • ▢1/2 pound fresh salmon
  • ▢Flour for dredging
  • ▢1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ▢1 tablespoon butter
  • ▢1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ▢2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes
  • ▢3 cloves garlic minced
  • ▢3/4 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • ▢1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ▢1/2 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • ▢Fresh basil, torn to taste (optional)
  • ▢Freshly grated parmesan cheese to taste (optional)
  • ▢Salt & pepper to taste


  • Boil a large, salted pot of water for the pasta. Cook it al dente according to package directions. When the pasta is about 10 minutes away from being done, start the sauce.
  • Lightly season the salmon with salt & pepper and then coat it in flour.
  • Add the oil and butter to a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the salmon for 2 minutes/side. 
  • Take the fish out of the pan and set it aside. Reduce the stove’s heat to medium.
  • Add the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and Dijon mustard to the pan. Cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. 
  • Add the cream, lemon juice, and Cajun seasoning to the pan. Stir until the sauce is smooth.
  • Add the salmon back into the pan and break it up using your spoon. Let it cook for a few more minutes until it’s cooked through and the sauce has thickened up a bit. Add some fresh basil in the last minute or two of cooking if using. 
  • Drain the pasta and toss it with the sauce. Serve with freshly grated parmesan if desired. 


  • I used sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and drained the oil before adding them to the pan.
  • You can stretch this to 4 people if you double the pasta and serve the dish with a side.
