What’s the serving size?
What do I need?
2 tbsp olive oil
700 g salmon fillets
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tbsp butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cups baby spinach
½ cup cream
¼ cup Parmesan, grated
2 tbsp finely chopped basil leaves
2 tbsp finely chopped flat leaf parsley
How do I make it?
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
Pat salmon with paper towel to remove excess moisture, then season with salt and pepper. Add to pan skin-side up and cook for 4 minutes, then flip and cook for a further 4 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate.
Reduce heat to medium and melt butter in the pan. Add garlic, and cook for 1 minute, then add cherry tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes, or until the tomatoes are starting to split. Add spinach and cook until it starts to wilt. Pour in cream, stir and then add Parmesan, basil and parsley. Bring to a simmer, then drop the heat to low and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly.
Add salmon back to the pan and cook until the salmon is heated through.
