Tuscan Butter Salmon

Mike says that this is the best salmon dish that he has ever eaten.  Delicious salmon with creamy, cheesy tomato and spinach.  Definitely worth trying!








4 6 oz salmon fillets

1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes

3 cloves garlic

1/4 cup herbs (basil & parsley)

1 lemon wedge

Black pepper, freshly ground

Kosher salt

2 tablespoons olive oil, extra virgin

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese


How to Make It

In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat oil.  Season salmon all over with salt & pepper.  When oil is shimmering but not smoking add salmon skin side up and cook until deeply golden, about 6 minutes.  Flip over and cook 2 minutes more.  Transfer to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium and add butter.  When butter has melted stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add cherry tomatoes and season with salt & pepper.  Cook until tomatoes are beginning to burst and then add spinach and cook until spinach is beginning to wilt.

Stir in heavy cream, parmesan and herbs and bring mixture to a simmer.  Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.

Return salmon back to skillet and spoon over sauce.  Simmer until salmon is cooked through, about 3 minutes more.

Garnish with more herbs and squeeze lemon on top before serving.

This recipe is from Delish and is certainly delicious!
