I have a very exciting recipe for you today. If you are a salmon lover, as I am, you’re going to really enjoy this dish. It consists of salmon with a cream sauce that includes spinach and sun-dried tomatoes. It’s tasty and exciting and I think you’ll just love it.
This dish is relatively simple to put together and it’s creative in its process. The ingredients needed are easy to find too. From salmon and heavy cream to sun-dried tomatoes and fresh spinach, it’s all right there in the supermarket. In my opinion, the best part of this recipe is that the flavors are truly infused together. The cream sauce is so tasty because the tomatoes and a few other ingredients are added before the cream is simmered. The spinach adds some great texture and overall, I think this dish is a win.
4 6-Ounce Pieces of Salmon, Skinless
Ground Black Pepper
1/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Butter
1/2 Cup Dry White Wine
2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic, Minced
1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 Cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Oil
1 Cup Heavy Cream
1 Cup Baby Spinach, Coarsely Chopped
I’d like to thank Natasha over at Salt & Lavender for this wonderful recipe. She put this entire thing together and I’m proud to try it out. As I mentioned earlier, this one was awesome.
Coat & Warm the Salmon
Create a mixture of 1/4 cup of flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper and spread that mixture on a plate. Then, place each piece of salmon on the plate, one at a time, in an effort to coat the salmon as best you can with the mixture. Then, warm a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil and butter to the skillet. Once the butter melts, go ahead and add the salmon to the skillet as well.
Cook the salmon for three minutes per side and after that time, take the semi-cooked salmon out of the pan and set aside on a nearby plate.
Make the Sauce
In the now empty skillet, add the wine, lemon juice, garlic, red pepper flakes, sun-dried tomatoes, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Swirl these ingredients around in the pan for two minutes and then add in the cream. Continue to swirl this mixture for another two minutes.
Add the Spinach & Salmon
Reduce the heat on your stove top to medium-low. Then, add the spinach to the skillet and mix everything together for about 30 seconds.
After that, add the salmon back to the skillet and let it cook through for a few more minutes. This shouldn’t take more than three or four minutes to finish things up.
Plate & Serve
Divide the salmon among plates and scoop some sauce up to place over each piece. Then serve and enjoy!
