Belongs to LC1231 Cajun Salmon Pasta 

This Cajun Salmon Pasta was a pretty quick recipe to put together and was a rousing success in our house for one of our picky eaters who isn’t a big fan of salmon. It had just enough spice and adding the milk certainly gave it a richer texture.

This was also a recipe that we recommend for those who are on a getting lean diet, especially if you make your choice of whole wheat as we did.

Fitness and health experts tout the benefits of salmon as being low in calories and saturated fat while being high in protein and omega-3 essential fatty acids. For those looking to get leaner or just healthier it is also recommended that you consume fish twice a week. This is a delicious way to do so!

This recipe is a bit high in calories and carbohydrates and is best on a cheat day or after a workout. This meal is a good source of protein, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6 and B12 while also being an excellent source of Vitamin C, Manganesse and Selenium.
