How To Make:

To prepare this dish, the first step is to cook the pasta according to the package instructions. While the pasta is cooking, the salmon and shrimp can be seasoned with salt, pepper, and any other desired spices and then cooked in a pan until fully cooked and slightly crispy on the outside.

Once the pasta is cooked and drained, the alfredo sauce can be prepared by melting butter in a saucepan and then adding cream, garlic, and parmesan cheese until the mixture is thick and creamy. The cooked salmon and shrimp can then be added to the sauce and mixed in with the pasta.

The finished dish can be garnished with fresh parsley and grated parmesan cheese for an extra touch of flavor and presentation. This dish is sure to impress anyone who tries it with its rich and flavorful combination of seafood, pasta, and creamy Alfredo sauce.

Tips and Variations:


Cook the salmon and shrimp separately before adding them to the pasta to ensure they are cooked properly.

Use fresh ingredients for the best flavor, such as fresh garlic and herbs.

Use heavy cream to create a creamy Alfredo sauce, but don't let it boil as it can cause the sauce to separate.

Cook the pasta until it is al dente (firm to the bite) to ensure it has the right texture.

Lemon juice can be added to brighten the flavors.


Use different types of pasta, such as linguine or fettuccine, for a different texture.

Add vegetables like spinach or broccoli to the dish for some added nutrition.

Use a different type of seafood, such as scallops or crab, instead of salmon and shrimp.

For a little heat, add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes.

Use a different type of cheese, such as parmesan or asiago, for a slightly different flavor.

For a healthier twist, use Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream to create a lighter sauce.
