    Celebrate Pasta Month with these 6 Sensational Seafood Pasta Recipes

    Skip the parm and load up on wild Alaskan seafood with these sensational seafood pasta recipes.

    Creamy Salmon Pasta with Spinach and Herbs

    This quick and easy salmon pasta recipe uses ground salmon burger, but the same amount of skinless salmon fillet, cut into small pieces, will work nicely. Farfalle–bowtie pasta–is great here because it captures all of the yummy sauce in the nooks and crannies. Penne, orecchiette, or rotini would be a perfect substitute.

    Linguine with Shrimp Fra Diavolo

    Fra Diavolo means “brother devil” in Italian and, as the name suggests, is a spicy, fiery-red sauce redolent of garlic and lots of crushed red pepper. Typically served with seafood, wild Alaskan spot shrimp, with their natural sweetness is a perfect match. The flavors are so rich and complex, there’s no need for cheese. (Please don’t!)

    Creamy One-Pot Crab Pasta

    How can something so simple and quick—with fewer than 10 ingredients—be so yummy? The trick is to cook the angel hair pasta in seafood stock which imparts flavor from the inside out, making this dish truly greater than the sum of its parts. Check out this seafood stock recipe and use up the crab shells.

    Greek Orzo with Salmon, Feta, and Spinach

    This Greek-inspired recipe is the perfect mash-up of spanakopita (spinach pie) and pasta salad. Sautéed ground salmon burger is tossed with orzo, spinach, feta, olives, tomatoes, and dill for a delicious and nutritious all-in-one meal. It works equally well with flaked leftover salmon, chopped salmon fillet, or even halibut burger.

    Seafood Pasta with Artichokes, Olives and Capers

    This simple seafood pasta recipe combines all the great flavors of the Mediterranean — olives, artichokes, capers, and lemon — with orecchiete (little ears in Italian) and is as perfect for al fresco dining in the summer as it is for a cozy wintertime dinner in front of the fireplace.
