Ingredients

  • 8 oz. pasta of choice
  • 4 salmon filets skinless
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt/pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta according to directions, drain, and set aside.
  • Season the salmon filets with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Cook the salmon filets with 1 Tbsp of the oil over medium heat for about 4-6 minutes on each side (or until it feels firm to the touch and is fully cooked).
  • While the salmon is cooking, whisk together the almond milk, garlic powder, and salt/pepper (to taste) in a mixing bowl until smooth.
  • Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add in the almond flour and whisk to create a paste.
  • Add in the almond milk mixture and whisk, bringing to a simmer.
  • Continue to simmer and whisk continously for about 7-10 minutes as the sauce heats up, reduces, and thickens.
  • Remove from heat and let the sauce sit for about 3 minutes.
  • Add in the pasta and stir, coating it evenly in the creamy sauce.
  • Cut the salmon into small pieces and lightly mix it into the pasta and sauce.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • If the sauce is too thin, add in 2 Tbsp of almond flour at a time up to 1/4 cup to thicken while it is still simmering.
