Salmon Rasta Pasta

As some of you may know, I am currently working on a Seafood Ebook. Originally, this recipe was going to be featured in it, but I decided that the Glam Kitchen Gang needed a new, lit pasta dish. What exactly makes this “Rasta”, well because this dish is made with Jamaican jerk seasoning , coconut milk , fresh veggies and thyme which infuses soooooo much flavor. I’ve seen this dish on so many restaurant and chef IG pages and I decided to take a stab at it. As usual, let me know what you think and don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or comments! Enjoy !

Glam Kitchen Tips

  4. Hi can you tell me about how much jerk seasoning you’re using? I plan to make this tonight

  5. Greetings,

    Is it possible to Substitute the Parmesan cheese for something else, for someone who doesn’t eat cheese?

  6. I wouldn’t substitute it with anything else sorry ❤️ I will definitely think of adding non cheese pasta sauces as one recipe in the future
