  6. Add peas and smoked salmon to the shallots. Stir.
  7. Add Alfredo sauce to the mix. Simmer until mixture comes together, on medium-low heat for a few minutes.
  8. 9.Turn off heat and add the mixed herbs. Set sauce aside.
  9. Preheat large sautée pan with 2 tbsp olive oil on medium heat.
  10. Coat salmon with salt and olive oil. Place in preheated pan and increase heat to high.
  11. Cook for 3 minutes. Turn over and cook for an additional 3 minutes
