Recipe Notes

  • Try this recipe with boneless chicken breasts or thighs instead of salmon.
  • For some a little spice, add some crushed red pepper flakes.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add the salmon and cook until golden on both sides and almost cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.
  2. Melt the butter in the skillet. Cook the garlic for 30 seconds. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir in the grape tomatoes or sundried tomatoes and cook about 3 minutes. Pour in the broth and bring to a gentle simmer.
  3. Turn the heat to medium-low and add the cream. Add the spinach and cook until it wilts, about 2 minutes. Add the Parmesan cheese and cook about 2 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Put the salmon back into the pan. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes more or until cooked through.

So glad you enjoyed this recipe, ACE Holdings ! It is so good.
This looks awesome. I've been trying to get family members to eat salmon but they all feel the taste is too "fishy". However a great sauce makes all the difference. Nice to find one that isnt sweet like teriyakis or bbq sauce
Elisa Schmitz
Agreed. The right sauce makes everything better, Tex . Let us know how everyone likes it!
