After being away to Las Vegas for almost a week, it was so good to come home to my lovely family. To make it up to them, today, I decided to treat them with a delicious dinner. I cooked my creamy salmon which I served over a bed of corn and red bell pepper. The salmon was moist, tender and crispy at once, and delicious.
As much as I enjoyed that wonderful treat from work in Las Vegas, eating dinner with my family is what brings me the most joy.
Marjie’s Creamy Garlic Salmon
2 lbs Salmon
1 cup reduced fat cream
1 cup parmesan cheese
½ cup white wine
1Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2Tbsp unsalted butter
4 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground mustard
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
2Tbsp chopped parsley
In a large skillet, heat the extra virgin olive oil over medium heat. Slice the salmon and season with salt, pepper, lemon zest, ground mustard, and garlic powder.
Sear in the skillet about 3minutes on each side. Once cooked, remove from the skillet and set aside.
Melt the butter in the same skillet. Sauté the garlic for about 30 seconds. Pour in the white wine and let it reduce. Add the cream and bring to a gentle boil while stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. Add the parmesan cheese and allow the sauce to gently simmer until it thickens.
Add the salmon back into the skillet, sprinkle with parsley and add the lemon juice.
I served the salmon over my sauté corn and red bell pepper.
For my sautéed corn, in a non-stick skillet, I simply heated 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over moderately high heat until it’s hot but not smoking.
I added the corn and diced red pepper which I stirred, until tender but still crunchy for about 2 minutes. I added some red pepper flakes and cooked for about 1 more minute. Then I seasoned with salt and pepper to taste.
I really love salmon and your recipe looks absolutely amazing and delicious. I will definitely try it this week !
It was delicious, Elena!
It was so delicious, the whole family enjoyed it.
This sounds like a really tasty dish. I don’t eat salmon often so any inspiration is welcome. I’d love to try this.
Try and let me know, Melanie!
I love salmon and either grill mine or roast it. I’ll try this in a sauce with modifications as I don’t take dairy or cheese.
Just like you, Kemi, we all love salmon in my house.
Many people will hate me for not liking salmon but this combination might just make it work for me.
That’s okay, my best friend does not eat seafood and ice cream, which are the stuff that I can’t live without.
This sounds really lovely, I am not a salmon eater but my family are and would love this x
Try to surprise them by making it for them, Samantha!
Some crunchy corn with creamy garlic salmon? Oh my! Looks so delicious..garlic never disappoints!
Salmon is my bestie. For real though, I am obsessed and eat it every single day. This recipe looks friggin’ DELICIOUS to me (DUH)… And I want to just eat ALL of that salmon, RIGHT now!! 😀
Small world, Gigi, we share the same bestie, Salmon, lol, This one was a hit and was gone so quick that I could not believe it.
Havent had salmon in a really long time. Definitely trying out your recipe for this yummy Creamy Garlic Salmon ?

Not a week goes by where we don’t have salmon. Love this new way to make it. Gotta try it!
Same here, Nicole!

It was super delicious, Daphne!
I love salmon. I will definitely try this recipe this week . Thank you for sharing Marje.
Wow, this sounds delicious! I love everything about it! Well, I prefer Tilapia over salmon, but that’s an easy switch. We like seafood recipes in the summer, so will be trying this out soon.
To me, seafood is the best. Coincidentally, today, I am making a grilled Tilapia!
I am not much into cooked fish, I like raw better. I give this recipe to my mom as she loves cooked salmon.
Hope she likes it, Aisasami!
Salmon is one of my all time favorite meals. I have to give this one a try.
Same for me, Kristen!
I love salmon – and this looks delicious! I love that you serve it over corn and red peppers. It looks delicious!
I was going for the color and felt like the corn and pepper would be perfect.
