This Creamy Tuscan Salmon is a rich and satisfying seafood dinner ready in under 30 minutes!
This recipe is one of those that everyone will think you spent an eternity preparing. No one will ever know it takes all of 20-something minutes to throw together.
Before this, the last time I cooked salmon was when I made this delicious Maple Glazed Salmon. The piece I purchased was HUGE so I had enough left over (that I had frozen) for another meal. I adapted this recipe from my Creamy Tuscan Shrimp and Scallops (have you tried it yet?!)
What to serve with Creamy Tuscan Salmon:
I love it over pasta, but also enjoy it with a garden salad. Don’t forget the crusty French bread for all of that creamy Tuscan sauce!
