  • 1 lb fresh salmon skin on
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes in oil drained and roughly chopped
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning herbs
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup parmesan grated


  • Place a cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil.
  • Cut salmon into 2 or 3 pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  • Once the oil is hot, add salmon to the pan and cook on both sides for about 2-3 minutes. The salmon should still be slightly pink in the center.
  • Remove salmon from pan and transfer to a plate, cover with foil. Set aside.
  • Add diced onion to the same pan and cook for 1 minute stirring from time to time. Add minced garlic and chopped sun dried tomatoes. Stir and cook for another minute.
  • Add fresh spinach, stir and cook for 1 minute and add salt, pepper, dried basil and Italian seasoning herbs. Stir and toss until the spinach is wilted.
  • Add heavy cream, stir to combine and cook for a few minutes, until the cream just slightly starts to simmer.
  • Reduce heat to low-medium.
  • Add grated parmesan cheese and stir until the cheese is fully melted. Taste and adjust the sauce for salt and pepper.
  • Add the salmon back to the pan, skin side down, scoop and pour some of the sauce on top of the salmon and cook it in the sauce for about 3-5 minutes, or until heated through. Baste the salmon from time to time.
  • Serve immediately.
