I loved this pasta! It was good and easy to make. I did make several substitutions though. I used angel hair pasta, instead of the tri-colored pasta assortment (honestly, I don't even know wh...

Just wonderful! I really wish this site would let you do half stars. As my wife and I give this recipe a 4.5. My only additions to the recipe was a Tbl. more of EVOO, a pinch more salt, and a...

Yummmmm!!!!! Everyone in my family loved this salad, even sister, and my boyfriend that hate seafood and salmon, Loved It. My boyfriend just loved it, not only did he get seconds, he got thirds.

This recipe was everything I wanted it to be: quick, simple, healthy, delicious, and easily adaptable! I smoked the salmon myself and it still only took 30-40 minutes to put everything together....

Can you say YUM. My husband and my 2 year old loved this dish. Very very tasty. Will make again.

I liked this recipe but you must be careful who you serve it to. Fish does not appeal to everyone especially most children.

this was a good quick, tasty meal. I had leftover shrimp and smoked salmon and this made a good meal of them. I substituted basil for the tarragon. I would make this again.

This is easy and so tasty! I had all of the ingredients in the house except the shrimp, but will make it again with it!

i did not use the tarragon because i did not have any on hand. also i used penne noodles and did not use exactly 3 tablespoons of curry was delicious and will be eating it again soon.!
