Seared Salmon and Lemon Butter Pasta

Morsels of Life - Seared Salmon and Lemon Butter Pasta - Level up your usual pasta with some lemon herb whipped butter and spinach. Top it off with freshly seared salmon. It's easier than you think!

Salmon's one of those meals I can throw together quickly. And it's one I often fall back on when making seafood. Pasta's also a favorite around here. We like carbs. Lots of them! Plus, compound butter's a great way to easily fancy up a meal. No need to let everyone know how easy it is to make!

So instead of doing the usual and keeping salmon, pasta, and compound butter in separate recipes, I thought - why not combine the power of all three? When their powers combine, you get a scrumptious seared salmon and lemon herb whipped butter pasta!

What's your favorite way to level up a meal?
