Tuscan Butter Salmon
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 (6-oz) Seafood Producers Co-op salmon fillets, patted dry with paper towels
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tbsp. butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
2 cups baby spinach
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/4 cup chopped herbs (such as basil and parsley), plus more for garnish
Lemon wedges, for serving (optional)
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Season salmon with salt and pepper.
When oil is shimmering but not smoking, add salmon skin side up and cook until deeply golden, about 6 minutes.
Flip over and cook 2 more minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Reduce heat to medium and add butter. When butter has melted, stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add cherry tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook until tomatoes are beginning to burst.
Add spinach and cook until spinach begins to wilt.
Stir in heavy cream, Parmesan, and herbs and bring mixture to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.
Return salmon back to skillet and spoon over sauce. Simmer until salmon is cooked through, about 3 minutes more.
Garnish with more herbs and squeeze lemon on top before serving.
