Cajun Salmon Alfredo Pasta

I made this shortly before I went on holiday to Spain and I loved it. I am getting much better at making a white sauce and this feels quite decadent!

Cajun Salmon Alfredo Pasta (from The Weary Chef)
(Serves 4)

250g dried pasta
4 salmon fillets
Cajun seasoning
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp garlic powder
pinch cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
500ml milk
30g Parmesan cheese
1 spring onion, sliced

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Sprinkle the cajun seasoning over the salmon fillets and bake in the oven for 15 mins.

Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook according to packet instructions.

While the pasta and fish cook, melt the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the flour, and whisk until a smooth paste is formed. Add the milk gradually, whisking in between additions.

Add the garlic powder, cayenne, salt and pepper, and stir. Continue cooking and stirring until the sauce thickens. Add the cheese to the sauce and reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir until the cheese is melted.

When the fish is cooked, flake into about 2 in pieces. Add the fish, pasta and spring onion to the sauce, and stir very gently to combine. Serve.
