How to Make the creamy Tuscan salmon recipe?

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the salmon filets on both sides with salt and pepper, and sear in the hot pan, flesh-side down first, for 5 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. Once salmon filets are cooked, remove from the pan and set aside.

2. In the same pan, melt the butter in the remaining cooking juices leftover. Add in the garlic and fry until fragrant (about one minute). Add onion and stir fry until translucent. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and fry for 1-2 minutes so they release their flavors. Finally, pour in the vegetable broth, and allow the sauce to reduce down slightly. 

3. Reduce heat to low, add the heavy cream, and bring to a gentle simmer while stirring occasionally. Season the cream sauce with salt and pepper to your taste.

4. Add in the baby spinach and allow to wilt in the sauce, and add in the parmesan cheese. Allow the cream sauce to simmer for a further minute until the cheese melts through. 

5. Add the grilled salmon filets back into the pan; sprinkle with the parsley, and spoon the sauce over each filet. Serve the creamy Tuscan salmon over steamed veg or cauliflower rice for Keto dieters or rice or pasta for non-Keto. Enjoy! ❤️

Best tips for the Tuscan salmon recipe

This Tuscan salmon recipe is so easy, quick to cook, and ready in under 20 minutes or less! Crispy and flaky salmon is smothered in a creamy garlic butter spinach and sun-dried tomato sauce. The creamy garlic sauce is restaurant-quality and keeps the salmon fillets tender and moist on the inside.

  • The key to obtaining a perfectly creamy sauce is to gently simmer the sauce to avoid separating and curdling
  • For more flavor, you can add a dash of white wine instead of using only vegetable broth.
  • Feel free to substitute vegetable broth with chicken broth or water.
  • If you don’t have salmon available, substitute salmon for trout, cod, or even tilapia.

How to cook salmon?

  • Use either skin-on or skinless salmon fillets. We like skin-on fillets because it guarantees the second round of searing won’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • To allow the salmon flesh to crisp up evenly while cooking, bring the salmon fillets at room temperature and pat dry with paper towels. This also helps to prevent sticking in the pan.
  • Season salmon just before cooking to avoid drawing out the moisture and end up with dry salmon. 
  • Make sure your pan is nice and hot before adding your fillets in. Sear your salmon fillets flesh-side down first (skin-side up) until nicely golden and crispy for 3-4 minutes each side, depending on the thickness. If the fillets are extra-thick, cook a little longer, reducing the heat to medium or medium-low, so you don’t burn the outside while the inside is still undercooked.

What to serve with the Tuscan Salmon

This salmon recipe is super easy and goes with lots of possibilities when it comes to choosing a side dish. Some of the best options for this salmon recipe are:

  • Steamed/roasted veggies are a low carb favorite ( zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice, asparagus, broccoli, etc…)
  • Mashed potatoes
  • White or brown rice
  • Pasta

How to Store the Cooked Salmon

The leftover salmon will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Store the leftover Tuscan salmon in an airtight container. You can also freeze the fish in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

Is salmon healthy?

Salmon is a real superfood: It contains omega-3 fatty acids, best known for its heart health benefits. Eating salmon or other fatty fish such as trout, mackerel, and herring helps protect your heart!

    Delicious. Lots of expensive ingredients.

  • Leslie Caffey

    2024-02-26 11:23:43

    This has become a favorite in our home. I have used this fantastic sauce on salmon, cod and chicken and I can imagine it would be equally delicious over shrimp. It's the kind of thing you want to pick up the plate and lick it all off! Just fabulous, easy and satisfying.

  • Kristie

    2024-02-20 19:34:00

    I’ve been making this for a few years now - it’s so good! I bake the salmon in the oven while I make the sauce to get everything done a little quicker. I use a can of coconut milk instead of half-and-half to keep it dairy-free, and serve it over sautéed cauliflower rice.

    Made this tonight for my husband and he said it was the best meal I’ve ever made ❤️

    I made this and my family left none behind. I added a tbsp of sugar just because and it was awesome. My husband raved about it. My picky 3yr old didn't want to try but when she did, she was in love. I did the salmon. 3 minutes then 2 minutes on the other side. It was nice and buttery. I served this with roasted sweet potatoes mixed with russet potatoes, sauteed asparagus and steamed broccoli.

    It Love this recipe. I get my sun dried tomatoes from Trader Joe’s. It’s so good

  • Rachel

    2023-07-30 20:41:22

    Great recipe and sauce for multiple proteins, but in no way shape or form did this take 20 minutes. The salmon, veggies, waiting for the stock to heat up and reduce, pan to heat down, cold cream to slowly simmer, cheese to melt.. not just 20 minutes

  • CarolAnne

    2023-05-30 00:37:23

    Fantastic recipe! My husband, lifelong fisherman and connoisseur of all things fish, says this is the best salmon he’s ever eaten. Score!

    This recipe was DELICIOUS! Everyone in the family loved it...I'm curious @eatwell101 can this be prep and frozen to pop in the oven for a quick go to meal?

  • Tara

    2023-01-20 15:32:10

    The first time I made this, I made as written. My husband and I both thought that the recipe was good, but that using salmon - was just too ‘fishy’. Salmon has so much flavor on its own, and then adding all the additional flavors- was a bit much. So I now make this recipe using red snapper. I also reduce the amount of cream and Parmesan to taste.

  • Karen

    2023-01-06 18:26:54

    Let me start by saying that I have NEVER left a review on a recipe. But this one I couldn't resist. Just started keto this week and went online to look for a few recipes. As hubby and I both love salmon, decided to try this one. OMG... It was absolutely delicious! Served it over cauliflower rice which paired excellent with the creamy sauce. Hubby (who's almost 80) said it was the best fish meal he has EVER eaten. Definitely a keeper and can't wait to serve it to company. Thank you!!!

  • Tracey

    2022-12-15 22:59:11

    I hate salmon. Hate the taste.. but trying to eat right. I made this tonight and Lord Jesus... this was absolutely excellent. My son (17) that thinks he is the greatest food critic known to man scarfed this up like a man facing death row awaiting his last favorite meal. He gave it a 12... first thing above a 9 he's ever given me. He wants me to fix this every week. This was really good. I followed the directions to the t as all reviews should go by. If you alter something you aren't reviewing the recipe are ya? Very lovely recipe and very easy..

  • Kisses

    2022-12-07 19:01:51

    The best! It turned out great and It was so easy to cook. I didn’t add any broth, since I didn’t have any available, and didn’t add water either as a substitute. I added the heavy cream and parmesan as the bae of the sauce instead. It tasted great, my family loved it and even asked me to make it again next time.

  • Nancy

    2022-11-08 20:35:28

    Great recipe! I added some Cajun seasoning to the salmon before searing and some red pepper flakes to the sauce. I served it over linguine and we loved it! Will definitely make this again!

    The Tuscan Salmon dish was so delicious my family just loved it, it truly deserves a "Blue Ribbon." Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful tasty dish.

  • Sonja

    2022-10-16 09:45:38

    I made this last night with mahi mahi vs salmon since my husband doesn’t like salmon! It is soooooo tasty! We used zoodles and cooked them In the sauce before adding the fish back in and added fresh basil!!!! I highly recommend this dish! Would be great w shrimp too!!! Thanks for an incredible recipe!!!

  • Tina

    2022-09-03 12:54:02

    Really nice. Salmon stuck a little and i used sundried tom paste as didnt have the real toms in oil but it was sooooo nice. The skin went all crispy which added texture to the sauce. Will definately make again loved it.

  • Aisha

    2022-08-22 19:49:15

    Delicious ang quick. I almost followed the recipe to the 'T', which is very rare for me. Only changes I made was to skin and cube the salmon into large bite size pieces because the seafood deli guy cut the salmon awkwardly. I didn't have fresh garlic on hand so I used minced and pureed from the jar. I will make a again and again.

  • Rachelle

    2022-08-13 22:27:41

    I don’t leave reviews much, but this recipe was AMAZING. My husband kept thanking me for making such a great meal. The recipe was straight forward and easy to follow. I’m so proud of myself lol thank you for creating this recipe and sharing. The sun dried tomatoes made this so scrumptious. I can’t wait to make for our next dinner party!

  • Suzanne

    2022-07-06 22:35:44

    So delicious and easy to make. My whole family said this was the best salmon they ever had. Score! And the sauce was amazing. Mixed with the salmon and cauliflower rice... I thought I was eating real rice. So delicious!! Do yourself a favor and make this. You won't regret it!

  • Andreas P

    2022-07-05 21:33:13

    Best. Salmon. Period. I just made this and it was so delicious!! It doubles very well, paired it with garlic herb jasmine rice and roasted asparagus and lemon juice. Make this tonight and be in bliss.

  • Nasha

    2022-07-05 02:34:59

    Wouldnt bother to leave reviews HOWEVER. THIS WAS SO GOOD AND SO EASY TO MAKE. i didnt really follow the measurements accurately as I only did 1 filet of salmon, and didnt have vege broth( replaced it with chicken stock + water) and no sundried tomatoes ( cut halves of cherry tomato truss) instead. i also used thickened cream instead of heavy cream. fantastic recipe. easy. no regrets. pls try!!!! thank me later.

  • Nicky Thompson

    2022-02-15 22:56:09

    Usually make this recipe with chicken, but I thought I'd try it with salmon. My picky 17 year old practically licked the plate. He kept saying how good it was. We ate it over wheat linguine noodles. I didn't add tomatoes because I just didn't have any. Everything else I followed to the T and it was just perfect. 10 out of 10...recipe a keeper.

  • Kendra

    2022-02-06 20:21:44

    So good. I used chicken and chicken broth instead of vegetable broth as I don't eat seafood. 10/10 on flavor. I think next time I would use a little less garlic (maybe 4 cloves instead of 5).

  • Kim T

    2022-01-30 19:18:31

    Fantastic! Made home made garlic knots and served with cauliflower rice. Needed to up the seatings a bit for my taste but it was quick and simple

  • Bob linner

    2022-01-28 18:59:31

    Great. Added red pepper flakes mushrooms and artichoke hearts.

  • chisssssyyyyy

    2022-01-25 22:03:57

    Quick and easy! I subbed milk for heavy cream because that was what I had on hand. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. It turned out delicious!! I served over couscous and there were no leftovers.

  • DyAnna

    2022-01-23 16:35:42

    OMG. Made this last fall but added sliced kalamata olives and a small amt of chardonnay and reduced the fat by using 1/2 and 1/2 instead of the cream. Served it with asparagus. Ridiculously good. I am making it today for some family and they are going to flip. Serving it with garlic butter rice and Asparagus and brocollini. This recipe is so damn good.

  • Boryana

    2022-01-10 18:04:43

    Could've been a little better. Flavor 10/10, but I totally prefer to bake the salmon than cooking in a pan as it traps all the moisture inside preventing the salmon from drying (15min on 450F). Cooked 2 fillets in the pan and 2 in the oven and the oven ones were superior. Also if you don't like the sun-dried tomatoes you could use cherry tomatoes- it's just as great. I skipped the parsley as parsley isn't really made for fish in my eyes.

  • Steven

    2022-01-06 11:44:00

    OMG!!! This recipe is the BOMB!!! Its absolutely delicious! This is my new Go to for salmon

  • Fiona

    2021-12-24 20:29:33

    So delicious!!! I just made this for Christmas Eve dinner for my family, exactly following the recipe. It was fantastic!! Everyone loved it! We served it with basmati rice and green beans. It was perfect. I will definitely make again and highly recommend.

  • Rhiannon

    2021-12-23 18:43:25

    Absolutely amazing. My new salmon recipe. I followed exactly but added a bit of Adobe seasoning to the sauce. I can't rave enough about this recipe.

  • Lisa

    2021-12-05 23:58:43

    DELICIOUS!!! I used Roman cheese as shredded Parmesan was not available. Amazing! I seasoned the salmon with a few turns of my salt and pepper mill. Amazing! I used regular spinach that I cut into smaller pieces. Amazing! As the heavy cream (I used heavy whipping cream) was simmering, I seasoned it with a few turns from my salt and pepper mill. Amazing! This dish is my new “I have someone coming over for dinner what shall I cook?!” dish. I told my mother to cook this for her husband. I said it is so good he will divorce you just to remarry you again. It’s that good.

  • Melissa

    2021-11-21 18:49:21

    I tweaked my own version based on the reviews and I got a DEFINITE thumbs up.. I didn't add the white wine this time nor the parsley I added extra garlic a extra couple of tablespoons of broth I also added 1/4 of red and yellow bell peppers when I added the onion Before cooking the salmon I also sprinkled onsome lemon pepper seasoning and mrs dash tomato basil seasoning Last change was I added extra spinach and it didn't change sauce at all

  • Amanda

    2021-11-10 19:45:51

    This recipe is super simple and super yummy!!

  • Sarah

    2021-11-02 10:59:53

    Absolutely insane dish. Read some previous comments and took the advice of adding some white wine, hitting the salmon with some lemon, and adding extra garlic- WOW!!! This is the dish that made my boyfriend want to marry me!!! Thank you!

  • Genevieve

    2021-09-27 21:34:23

    Fantastic!!! My only “complaint “ is it takes longer than described. Also let salmon come to room temperature as directed and drain roasted red peppers thoroughly to get that crispy texture!!!

  • Julie

    2021-09-25 19:07:55

    Absolutely delicious!! None of the sauce will go to waste.

  • Alyssa

    2021-09-22 10:38:59

    This sauce is very delicious but incredibly rich. Maybe I'm just not used to eating such heavy foods (Alfredo is too much for me). I'll make again but probably use whole milk or half and half instead of the heavy cream. Otherwise a delicious dish!

  • Vicky

    2021-09-19 21:31:00

    What a lovely recipe. I didn't have sun dried tomatoes, so I used a half of a pint of cherry tomatoes. I only used 1/2 an onion. I added a bag of prepared deli shrimp and lobster pasta to simmer with the salmon. There was more than enough sauce left to add pasta. So glad that I did, it was splendid. Thank you for this recipe. I will try shrimp, bext.

  • Helen

    2021-08-23 11:34:52

    DELICIOUS. My husband made this for our supper saturday night on the grill. I am not a fan of eating fish but this was amazing. Defiantly will ask him to make it again.

    2021-06-25 22:29:47

    super easy and yummy recipe! my fam gave it a thumbs up! as the salmon was resting, i hit them up with some fresh lemon juice. also, i used a little white wine along with broth. and i used 1 1/2 cups combo of half and half and cream and still there was a lot of sauce. i served it over angel hair pasta.

  • Lucy

    2021-05-15 22:06:58

    I made this for a friend, and she said it’s the best salmon she’s ever had. She insisted on having the recipe. I loved it too. Easy to make and served it all from the same pan. My only suggested tweaks: 8 oz of sun-dried tomatoes (this is where all the flavor comes from), 1 cup Parmesan, and avocado oil instead of olive oil (higher heat tolerance = better crust on salmon). Really terrific dish!

  • Dr. J'LYNN

    2021-05-12 18:34:09

    This is the most delicious cream sauce ever! I served it over brown rice, my husband couldn't get enough...

    It was ok. Kind of bland.

  • Nancy

    2021-05-11 18:37:36

    So I have a board here titled “Tried Tested and True” and this made it into that board. My gawd it was fairly easy with fairly simple on hand ingredients. Was FABULOUS. Used some fairly inexpensive salmon from the store but was still amazing. Made it just like the recipe said except the 2tbsp oil used to cook the fish I used the oil from my sun dried tomatoes that my friend made for me. Thanx for this nice delicious restaurant quality meal.

  • Jessalyn

    2021-04-27 19:53:06

    This recipe was AMAZING. I didn’t have any sun dried tomatoes so I just did the recipe as normal but added in some spaghetti/ tomato sauce. I savoured every bite. I also added in some broccoli in the same step as the onion and vegetable stock. So good. Will definitely make this recipe again.

  • Lauren

    2021-04-24 14:05:31

    Made this recipe tonight for a family of 4, instead of pan frying the salmon, I oven baked it instead as I made 6 fillets. I followed this recipe for the sauce to the T, tasted at every added ingredient and honestly the final sauce is absolutely to die for. I cooked the garlic in extra virgin olive oil (without adding butter) but the same ingredients and amounts throughout. There was plenty of sauce and it was super filling aswell, I served with cauliflower rice for myself and chips for the family as I am following the keto diet. This will definitely keep me full until tomorrow. Highly highly recommended! Thank you for this recipe!x

  • Esperanza Mañas

    2021-04-19 16:54:54

    I would use less heavy cream, white wine instead of vegetable broth and omit the parmesan. Can’t wait to try it.

  • K

    2021-04-08 15:46:08

    This recipe was a knock-out and so delish! I used fresh grape tomatoes in place of sundried and used half and half instead of the heavy cream. So, so, so good!

  • Jo-Ann

    2021-03-30 18:08:59

    I love this recipe. It is absolutely delicious and is something my entire family will eat. The first time I made it, my husband called it a “home run.” I make it at least once a month now because it’s pretty easy and it’s something I feel good about feeding toy family.

  • A-Mitch

    2021-03-10 14:21:56

    I liked this recipe a lot - the sauce does the salmon so much justice! I served it with pasta last night, but next time I think I'll use buttered rice.

  • Janet

    2021-03-09 23:14:46

    Delicious!! I switched it up a little bit to make it even healthier by omitting the butter and only using olive oil and instead of a cream sauce I did a white wine reduction. I had some fresh mushrooms so I toss those in with the onions and garlic. I had a frozen salmon fillet and some fresh spinach so this was just the perfect recipe I was looking for and I will definitely make it again.

  • Joelle

    2021-03-03 06:38:49

    Wow! delicious...even my kids enjoyed it! I substituted chicken for my husband :)And I doubled the sauce part of the recipe so I would have leftovers. Great recipe

  • Roberta

    2021-02-27 15:09:49

    This recipe was so delicious. Hubby and I both loved how different it is from most of my other recipes. I used a splash of white wine and increased my broth as some had cooked away, otherwise I stuck to the recipe. Will definitely make again.

  • LP

    2021-02-21 20:34:16

    My husband AND children 18 and 16 all agree this is the best meal I have ever made! We used very fresh salmon and it was amazing! I doubled the recipe because we have a family of 6 and I needed to save some for the others when they get home. Delicious!! The sun dried tomatoes bring out so much flavor.

    what non dairy alternative can be used for the cream?

    2021-02-20 20:55:53

    2021-02-15 22:41:15

    This recipe was delicious!! My husband said it was one of the best meals he's ever had. I used 4 sockeye salmon fillets which worked well with the amount of sauce in the recipe. I used regular cream instead of heavy cream which worked out well also and I would recommend cutting up the sun dried tomatoes before cooking them. Great recipe!!

    I’m going to make, but reduce several items to make it keto friendly. Like less tomato, onion, broth, spinach. Should be more keto friendly.

    This was delicious the first time around. But the second time around, I added mushrooms and capers. Made it even better.

    This was amazing. When I was adding the meal to track it, it seems like the nutrition numbers are way off. To get that much protein, it seems like you would need 13oz or so of salmon per serving, and that alone would give you about 47g of fat. That’s before everything else is added in. I’m coming up with 115g of fat total per serving if you use enough salmon to get 90g protein per serving. Sorry for all the numbers, but I’m new to keto, and trying to make sure if my macros. Can someone explain where I could be messing up?

    This dish was amazing! I don’t like to cook salmon because I feel like it’s always very fishy tasting however there was nothing like that at all. The sauce is amazing and we were licking our dishes clean!

    I made this for dinner last night. Wow! Not only was it absolutely delicious but the presentation was so elegant that I ended up dimming the lights and setting the table with candles with soft music playing in the background. It was as though we were having a gourmet dinner at a fine restaurant. My husband absolutely loved it! This recipe is a keeper for sure!

    This is absolutely delicious! And easy to make. I used chicken broth in place of veggie broth, and used half n half. I put in twice as much chicken broth, half of the half-n-half, and a lot of spinach, the sauce is just devine, goes very well with salmon over rice. 5 stars

    This was amazing. The left over sauce I’m freezing to use in a future dish.

    This was delicious! I added soft shell crab to top it off. Next time, I plan to add mushrooms and capers.

    This was delicious and very easy to make. Tasted like something I had at a nice restaurant. I made with cauliflower fried rice. 5 stars.

    I was quite pleased with my final product. I poured my sauce over some penne pasta with salmon on top and served it with cheesy garlic toast.

    Made this tonight after an afternoon drive. Fast, easy, and most important full of flavor. Had no dried tomatoes so I used roasted peppers in oil - just dried them well before cutting them up and adding to the pan. Served over broad noodles. No leftovers from this dish. BEST SALMON RECIPE EVER.

    This recipe is FABULOUS! I am a very tenured cook, and this is- by far- the best salmon recipe I’ve ever made. My 17 year old daughter actually asked to learn how to “make this recipe so she knows how to make a recipe like this.” I can’t underscore how big a statement this is from my non-cooking child! The rest of the family said restaurant-quality (like the other reviews) so you know it’s true. Served with a melange of roasted veggies and a quinoa-lentil bed. Yum!!!!!! Plenty of sauce. Perfect! Thank you for this one!!! My only change was deglazing with a bit of dry vermouth before the stock and using prepared, jarred garlic.

    This is a very yummy recipe, café quality for sure... easy to modify to suit your taste and works beautifully with salmon and other fish, as well as with fresh chicken tenderloins.

    This is such an amazing recipe! I have made it several times, and it always turns out delicious. Sometimes I swap out the sun-dried tomatoes for roasted red peppers, but it's delicious either way. It's a restaurant-quality entree!

    I added half a cup of Fresh shredded Romano cheese in addition to the Parmesan cheese and it made the sauce so thick and creamy!! There was so much sauce I added a package of gluten free linguine and tossed everything together and it made such a difference! I’ll never look at Olive Garden the same way again, if you haven’t tried this recipe, you are truly missing out. You’ll never go back, I promise!

    Loved it ! This receipt was easy and tasty! I added a few extra seasoning to give sauce more flavor but I enjoyed making it and eating it 🤤

    Wow, made this last night. It was amazing. So simple to do and incredibly tasty. I'm on a very low carb (not keto) diet to reduce my blood sugar count so I served this with steamed broccoli and baby carrots.

  • Tina

    2020-12-13 19:03:54

    This was SO good!! And super simple! I left a little of the oil from the tomatoes, and really let the chicken broth cook down. I ended up with a sauce so thick I wasn’t sure it was going to work out! But then the spinach wilted and it was PERFECT! I will will DEFINITELY make this again!

  • Robyn

    Totally awesome, like totally awesome recipe I cooked it for my spouse Nora and she is sold. I added a sardine sauce to up the flavour it complimented the tomato aspic for dessert.

    Well...I cheated on the sauce...I actually used "jarred garlic Alfredo, put minced garlic and sun-dried tomatoes and a "splash of white wine, tad of real butter...Simmered about 15 minutes before adding "FRESH baby spinach....Once ready I poured over the salon fillet, and used "extra to pour on top of rice(of choice) that I cooked with sliced green onions(whole green onion! Too die for! My veggie of choice was baby fresh asparagus(which also was yummy with the sauce or just REAL butter and minced garlic as a side.There are "so many good "jarred Alfredo sauces on the shelves that make fish or chicken breast fancy dinners easy! "Depending on "what you are making, just adding a "pinch or real butter, or a little "cream cheese /parmesian too) to these "jarred sauces will "Put them OVER the top in texture and flavor boost!

    Great recipe. To make it thicker, just add more cheese. I altered it a little and it turned out great. Can wait to try this sauce with a pasta.

  • Belinda

    I made this for lunch, substituting 2T of Tomato paste for the sun-dried and served it over fresh tagliatelle pasta. It was delicious! I also used crème fraîche instead of liquid cream and a Knoor vegetable bouillon "blob" instead of the liquid stock which meant I didn't need to reduce the sauce and it was lovely, thick and creamy. I'll definitely make this again with the sun-dried tomatoes!

    I made this last night for my boyfriend and I and we loved it. It definitely didn't look as pretty but you know that happens. Anyway, I deliberately followed instructions but kept some of the sun-dried tomato oil in the jar to pour into the sauce just for more flavoring. In addition, I added Trader Joes' red wine vinegar at different points throughout. First when sauteeing the onions, then with the vegetable broth, then at the end as a final step before submerging the salmon. Also, this changed how I will cook my salmon. I've never done flesh down first and feel like it made a huge difference. I will cook again, but with some time in between as it isn't the best for my diet, ha. (p.s. heavy cream)

    I didn't have Salmon so I use some Long Cod that we had in the freezer. Added basil to the sauce and was amazing. My wife who loves seafood says that she would choose it for her last meal.

  • Freddie

    Made this and it was absolutely delicious, had it with a creamy cheesy layered potatoes as the base and paired with a South Australian Shiraz, the flavours felt like a royal meal

    The Best and Simple and Delicious recipe 👍🏾. Will make again, again, and again. This is definitely a KEEPER.

    I was looking for ideas to use some frozen salmon I bought. I added mushrooms and crushed red pepper. I add mushrooms to almost everything. I served it over cauliflower rice. Turned out so good! The flavors are amazing. This will now be my go to salmon recipe unless I am smoking it on the pit. I’ve got extra sauce so I may cook up the other two fillets for dinner tomorrow.

  • Candice

    I made this recipe tonight. It’s delicious but my one gripe is the sauce is a little more watery than I would like. Any way to make it thicker?
