What You'll Need
  1. To make the Spicy Tuscan Salmon: If your wanting to accompany this dish with some pasta. Then make sure you start by cooking that first, and once it’s cooked strain and set aside.
  2. Start by cooking the salmon, add 1 tbsp of oil from the jar of sun-dried tomatoes into the frying pan. Saute the salmon on medium-low heat flesh side down for 8 minutes. Flip over and saute for another 2 minutes or until the salmon looks cooked all the way through. Once cooked throughout remove from the pan and set aside for later.
  3. In the same pan, add the crushed garlic and chopped up sun-dried tomatoes. Simmer on medium to low heat for 2 minutes before adding in all the spices, milk, sour cream and parmesan cheese. Next add in the washed spinach, and allow it to wilt before adding back in the cooked salmon fillets.
  4. Bring the pan to low heat, and simmer everything together uncovered for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow it to sit off the element to thicken up for a few minutes before serving.

Are we sure the quantities are correct? That’s an awful lot of Parmesan for 2 and the milk plus the liquid from the spinach makes for a lot of liquid!
