Mum gave this a 9.5 out of 10 and that’s the sort of person I want to cook for. The sauce is so damn good. Since I posted it on my instagram the feedback has been incredible, one you definitely need to make.
Tuscan Salmon (recipe serves 3):
✔️3 salmon fillets
✔️2 tsp olive oil
✔️2 tbsp butter
✔️5 cloves garlic, finely diced
✔️1 onion, diced
✔️150ml vegetable stock
✔️150g jarred sun-dried tomato in oil, drained of oil and roughly chopped
✔️300ml double cream
✔️Salt and pepper
✔️3 handfuls baby spinach
✔️1 handful grated Parmesan (maybe more to taste)
✔️1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season the salmon on both sides with salt and pepper, and sear in the hot pan for circa 5 mins on each side then remove from the pan and set aside.
In the same pan, melt the butter and add the garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add in the onion and stir for another few minutes until the onions are softening, then add the sun-dried tomatoes and fry for 1-2 minutes more. Then pour in the vegetable stock, and allow the sauce to reduce down slightly.
Reduce heat to low, add the cream and bring to a low simmer, stirring every so often. Season the sauce with salt and pepper. Add in the spinach and allow to wilt then add in the parmesan. Allow the creamy sauce to simmer for a further minute until the cheese melts through.
Add the salmon back in to the pan to warm back up; sprinkle with the parsley and then get ready to serve.
We had ours with roasted new potatoes (my fave) and green beans.
