Expert Tips

Salmon is available either cold- or hot-smoked. Cold-smoking produces silky lox and Nova salmon while hot-smoking produces a firmer texture. Use hot-smoked salmon in this recipe.

Use dry fettuccine or linguine instead of fresh; use 8 ounces and cook it according to package directions.

Try sugar snap peas in place of the asparagus. Cook the peas for 2 to 3 minutes before adding the salmon and alfredo sauce.

Complete the meal with crusty dinner rolls and lemon-flavored sparkling water.
