How to make it:

  1. Prepare all your ingredients

    - Peel 2 bulbs garlic
    - cut foil big enough to wrap or line and cover the ingredients
    - line your baking sheet with foil and throw in the garlic and drizzle with olive oil
    - Make sure it is sealed to avoid burning or overcooking
    - place in oven and roast for 20 mins unopened, 10 mins opened
  3. Cook your pasta in boiling water for 7-9 mins (check the label of the pasta of choice as this may vary depending on what you will use). Drain your pasta and set aside. Make sure to also set aside at least a cup of pasta water.
  4. Build your cream sauce in a pasta pot

  7. In a separate pan, sear your salmon for about 4 mins (skin side up),
  8. Assemble everything by tossing your pasta in the sauce, place the salmon on top
