Creamy Garlic Butter Tuscan Shrimp over Salmon and Quinoa

About 2.5 years ago, I came across this Creamy Garlic Butter Tuscan Shrimp recipe on Pinterest and it has been my favorite meal to cook ever since! Shortly after that, I decided to try it with Salmon for my boyfriend and I’s first anniversary (I also found this recipe on Pinterest). I had each recipe over rice or noodles, but I preferred the rice. This meal is definitely a fan favorite, especially of Courtney B. and my boyfriend.  This time I made it, I decided to switch it up though and combine the two recipes. It wasn’t hard  to do at all. I cooked the salmon first and put it over quinoa (YUMMY!), and then followed the shrimp recipe.

After I completed the entire recipe, I poured the sauce over the salmon. I have not tried making it with the optional white wine yet, because the recipe amazes me without it, but I will include that addition in the future. I also like to add mushrooms in when I’m frying the onion. I highly recommend this! Try it out and let me know how you like it. If you are a seafood and alfredo lover, I promise you will not be disappointed! Also, let me know if you add any additional ingredients that you think makes it taste better!
