Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Salmon

November 10, 2021

Savory salmon in a rich, creamy sauce comes together quickly thanks to some flavor-packed ingredients. We love to serve this with crusty bread to soak up the incredible sauce, but this would be delicious served over noodles, as well.
2 Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato SalmonHeat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved oil and heat until shimmering. Season both sides of the salmon fillets with salt and pepper, then place in skillet, skin side up. Fry for 5 to 7 minutes, until golden brown. Flip fillets, cover, and continue to cook for about 5 more minutes, until cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Add the onion and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until translucent. Add garlic and sun-dried tomatoes; cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Stir in the broth and salt and cook for 2 minutes, scraping the bottom of the skillet, until broth is slightly reduced. Stir in the cream and bring to a simmer. Add the Parmesan, then reduce heat to medium-low, stirring until cheese is melted. Stir in the spinach and parsley.
