Creamy Tuscan Salmon



Salmon (4)
Salt and Pepper
Olive Oil (2tsp)
Butter (2tsp)
(6) cloves of garlic finely chopped (I just do 3 scoops from a jar if I don’t have fresh garlic)
Yellow Onion (1) small and diced
Half and Half (1 3/4 cups)
Baby spinach (3 cups)
Parmesan (1 cup)
Parsley (1 tbsp.)
Cornstarch (1 tsp) + water (1 tbsp.) mixture if you need to thicken the sauce

*Rice or Pasta as base*

Can add in:
dry white wine (1/3 cup)
sun dried tomatoes
& a personal favorite: balsamic after plated


1. Season salmon. Heat the oil in large pan over medium-high heat and sear salmon for about 5 minutes on each side (or until you are happy with it *I like my salmon a tiny bit crispy so I go a little longer)

2. Remove salmon from pan and set aside covered by tin foil

3. Melt the butter in the same pan – add in the garlic by itself for about one minute then add onion to fry + wine + sun dried tomatoes (if using)

4. Turn the heat to low and add the half and half. Bring to a simmer – stirring occasionally.

5. Add spinach leaves – wilt then add parmesan cheese. Allow to melt then add the cornstarch mixture if you need a thicker sauce

6. Add salmon back into the pan. Sprinkle parsley on top and top with balsamic if you’d like!

7. Serve over pasta or rice and enjoy!

a little messy on the plate but delicious!

This is an easy meal for Calihan also since he loves pasta, salmon, and cheese! I just add a fruit to the mix and it’s a nice dinner for him as well!
