Did your stomach growl when you looked at this succulent salmon? We get it! This easy Tuscan salmon recipe has a creamy sauce flavored with Parmesan, garlic, tomatoes and spinach. What more do you need? So simple and so good!

Cuisine: Mediterranean
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 22 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 - 6 salmon fillets
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped fine
  • 1/3 cup vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (halved) or 1 jar (5 ounces) sundried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups baby spinach, packed
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan

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.
