Directions

1. Lightly season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. In a large non stick pan on medium heat, sear salmon fillets in 2 tablespoons oil, 2 – 3 minutes on each side. Remove salmon from the pan and set aside.

2. In the same skillet add 2 tablespoons oil reserved from the sun-dried tomatoes jar, saute onion, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, paprika, red chili pepper flakes and dried basil for 1 minute until garlic fragrant.

3. Add vegetable stock to deglaze the skillet and bring to a gentle simmer. Add half and half to the skillet and stir until a creamy sauce forms. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

4. Add salmon back to the skillet and reheat for a few minutes. Sprinkle with fresh basil and serve over pasta, rice or bulgur. Enjoy!
