Easy Salmon Piccata Recipe: This Salmon Recipe With a Creamy Caper Sauce Is Ready in 15 Minutes

We love chicken piccata, but sometimes you need a little fish in your life. Serve this flavor-packed salmon piccata recipe with your favorite vegetable and a crisp salad

Cuisine: Mediterranean 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill 
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons capers

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and cook salmon about 3 to 4 minutes on the first side, then flip and continue to cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 more minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add the garlic to the pan and cook about 30 seconds. 
  3. Mix a couple tablespoons of the chicken broth with the cornstarch to make a slurry. Add the remaining chicken broth to the pan and reduce by half. Then add the slurry and cook until thick, about 1 minute. 
  4. Add the cream, butter, dill, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of the zest and capers. Heat through. Return salmon to the pan. Serve.
