Quick & Easy Creamy Salmon, Asparagus & Baby Peas Pasta

I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy (not to mention healthy) weeknight dinners and I’m thrilled to say one of my favourite dishes just got a whole lot easier thanks to a fab new product. Sealord has just released two new frozen salmon products that I can keep in my freezer and have on hand for whenever I need. Because they’re snap frozen they maintain all the same health benefits (think Omega 3) of fresh salmon but are far more convenient. 

So when the peeps at Sealord invited me to try their new Frozen Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon I decided to whip up our family favourite to see how it measures up. Atlantic salmon has a delicate, mild flavour and is not quite as rich as other types of salmon on the market so it’s a great choice for families. The salmon pieces are skinless and boneless and can be thawed easily by tossing (in their plastic packaging) into a bowl of cold water for 30 minutes. The fillets come with the skin on (as you’d expect) and can be cooked from frozen. Too easy! 

It’s safe to say I’m a huge fan of this tasty new product and will definitely be keeping a few boxes on standby in the freezer from now on.   So if you’d like to give this new salmon a whirl then here’s my favourite pasta dish that not only looks and tastes amazing but is totally goof-proof too.

Enjoy!
