Creamy Tuscan Salmon

Creamy Tuscan Salmon with Spinach and Dried Tomato I’m taking you to Italy with this succulent express dish of salmon steaks with Parmesan sauce that can be prepared in no time for a delicious and tasty lunch or dinner! This comforting dish perfectly matches rice pilaf, tagliatelle pasta, penne, or just a good baguette of sourdough bread.

A craving for fish, here is a quick and easy recipe to make, especially for the evening when you have a long busy day, or you are out of ideas. Italian style salmon in a frying pan, fish fillets that melt in the mouth with a creamy parmesan sauce, candied cherry tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach for health, shallots, garlic, basil, and a touch of oregano to flavor it all.

Besides being a delicious dish, simple to prepare, it is cooked in a single pan (one pan) without taking out all the dishes! Very practical when you don’t have enough time! For this salmon dish, I use good pure olive oil, and I add the oil of dried tomatoes to give more flavor. Butter can also be used. This dish can also be prepared with chicken breast, which is just as delicious!
