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.


  1. This sounds like a really tasty dish. I don’t eat salmon often so any inspiration is welcome. I’d love to try this.

  2. 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.

    • That’s okay, my best friend does not eat seafood and ice cream, which are the stuff that I can’t live without.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Wow! Looking at your dish makes me hungry.. This would be a healthier option, I was actually looking for a fish viands that I can make this weekend. Thanks so much for the idea.

  6. Can’t wait to make this. This salmon over sautéed corn and red peppers looks delicious. Just that fresh kinda meal I was looking for. Thanks Margi!

  7. Salmon is not my favourite.. but it is my hubby’s favourite! So what wouldn’t do a loving wife for her man?! right? Your recipe sounds awesome and looks very tasty. I’m going to give it a try I’m sure my sweatheart will love it!
