I loved how clean and simple this dish is. The directions are good, BUT they should say to start the water for the noodles first because they will take the longest (getting the water to boil). Then everything else will fall into place. LOVED the pecans. So glad I made this!
I am freshly out of college, so I am not an expert chef. I am looking for new meal ideas and this one looked really fun. This recipe was a slight challenge for me (I couldn't quite get my timing right). I personally wasn't a huge fan of the dijon sauce, a little extra sweetness would have satisfied my taste buds a little more.
My variations from the recipe :
I cooked my salmon for about 2.5 minutes per side, I would recommend this for a fish lover.
The grocery store I went to was out of lemons, so I bought oranges, this worked very well on salmon, not sure how I liked it in the dijon sauce.
I added too much water to the asparagus which resulted in my overcooking the veggies. It made them very mushy, which worked out well enough I guess.
My noodles were a little dry, next time I will add more butter, or maybe an alfredo sauce.
Overall, this recipe was very fun and satisfying.
This receipe was as good as it sounded. The onlything I would change is to use a less butter. I didn't have any angel hair pasta, so I used penne. I also didn't have fresh lemons so I used bottled lemon juice. My husband is not a huge fan of fish, but with each mouthful he complimented the meal. I will definitely use this receipe again, for guests.
Very good-my husband enjoyed it. To make this lower in fat and calories, I baked the salmon.
AMAZING! I added one clove of garlic to the pasta. Satued it in a bit of butter then added to the pasta and sprinkled with herbs. SO GOOD. I would cut down on the fat a bit by using part olive oil and a bit of butter in the pasta and less butter in the asparagus as well. This dish may even be great with poached salmon rather than fried.
This was simply divine. The only thing I was missing was the glass of wine. I was concerned that the pasta was going to be too dry, but it wasn't. The mustard sauce is fantastic. Almost like a mock hollandaise sauce with a mustard flavor. I just wished there was more of it! I would have loved to have drizzled some over the asparagus.
A grown up tasting dish that even my kids loved. This was fantastic.
Amazing! All the flavours together were sooo good. I'll make more sauce next time.
