Free advice

Since you are going to shred the salmon, there is no need buying neat slices. Supermarkets often sell the trimmings; they’ll do just fine for you pasta.

This is a dish that covers a whole meal. You might have a starter if you are really hungry and courageous. Serving meat or fish afterwards is simply excessive.

Butterfly-pasta has nice texture, and gives the name to the dish. It can be replaced by other ‘short ‘ pasta types. Thus becoming ‘pasta al salmone’.

But: stick to salmon

It would be wild to change the main ingredient. Apart from having to change the name of the dish, you’ end up with a different taste, texture and color. Feel free to experiment, but don’t say I agreed.
