Creamy tuscan salmon is a delicious dinner that comes together in 30 minutes or less. Pan-seared salmon fillets cooked in a creamy sun-dried tomato sauce made with coconut milk and parmesan.
If you’re ever in the mood for a hearty, home cooked meal, this salmon recipe is for you. This dish is packed with flavor, so rich and creamy, and truly elevates weeknight dinners.
The salmon is first seared to get that perfect crust, then cooked in a creamy sauce made from coconut milk, sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan and a few other ingredients.
My ideal dinner would be to serve this salmon with fresh, warm bread and a side salad. The sauce is light enough for a summer meal, and made all in one pan! I love using my stainless steel saute pan for this recipe.
Creamy Tuscan Salmon Sauce
I made the tuscan sauce using canned coconut milk to help keep this dish lighter, but heavy cream is typically used and can be substituted instead.
The sweetness of the coconut milk pair so well with the savory parmesan and sun-dried tomatoes, but doesn’t leave an overpowering coconut flavor.
This one-pan meals comes together in just about 30 minutes, and is the perfect weeknight dinner. The seared salmon filets stay tender on the inside, with perfectly crisp edges.
Serve this with your favorite sides, like pasta or roasted vegetables, and enjoy!
