WHY YOU SHOULD TRY THIS CREAMY SALMON RECIPE

As if the photo is convincing enough, here are a few more reasons to try this salmon with roasted potatoes recipe:

  • Flavor: This salmon dish is incredibly flavorful. The richness of the creamy sun-dried tomato sauce, the savory salmon, and the crispiness of roasted potatoes is a taste experience you won’t want to miss.
  • Versatility: This recipe can be adapted to suit your preferences. You can customize the ingredients and add extra veggies or spices to make it your own. Substitute the salmon with chicken, shrimp or even tofu.
  • Nutrition: Notably, this dish is very indulgent. However, the salmon is a fantastic source of Omega-3 fatty acids and protein, while the potatoes offer essential carbohydrates. The inclusion of spinach and sun-dried tomatoes adds extra vitamins and antioxidants.
  • Comfort Food: It’s the ultimate seafood comfort food. Creamy, hearty, and satisfying, this dish is perfect for warming up on a chilly evening or enjoying a cozy meal at home.

TIPS ON MAKING THE BEST CREAMY SUN-DRIED TOMATO SALMON WITH ROASTED POTATOES

Here are some essential tips to ensure your Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Salmon with Roasted Potatoes turns out perfectly:

  • Quality Ingredients: Start with high-quality ingredients. Choose fresh salmon, good-quality sun-dried tomatoes, fresh baby spinach and freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for the best flavors
  • Even Potato Cubes: Cut the potato cubes uniformly, to ensure an even roast. Do this to guarantee crispy, golden-brown potatoes all around.
  • Season Well: Don’t skimp on seasoning. Season the potatoes generously with salt, pepper, and the other spices mentioned in the recipe for maximum flavor. Add a touch of crushed red pepper for heat if you desire.
  • Hot Pan for Salmon: When searing the salmon, make sure the pan is hot before adding the fish. This helps in achieving a nice sear and prevents sticking.
  • Don’t Overcook Salmon: Salmon cooks quickly, so be vigilant. Overcooked salmon can become dry and lose its tenderness. Remove it from the pan when it’s still slightly translucent in the center, as it will continue cooking once off the heat.
  • Slowly Thicken the Sauce: When adding the heavy cream, allow it to simmer and thicken slowly. Stirring constantly helps prevent lumps and ensures a smooth sauce.
  • Adjust Consistency: If the sun-dried tomato sauce becomes too thick, you can adjust the consistency by adding a bit more chicken stock or cream. Conversely, if it’s too thin, let it simmer a bit longer to thicken.
  • Taste and Adjust: Always taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning to your liking.

HOW TO SERVE AND STORE CREAMY SUN-DRIED TOMATO SALMON

Serve this Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Salmon with Roasted Potatoes alone, with steamed vegetables, a side salad, and/or crusty bread to soak up the delectable sauce.

If you have leftover salmon, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Reheat gently on the stove, or in a 350° oven for 8-10 minutes.

  4. Stir to coat.
  5. In a single layer, place the potatoes on a baking sheet. Bake until crispy and golden brown.
  6. While the potatoes are roasting, cut the salmon into bites.
  7. Add to the same bowl you used to prep the potatoes.
  8. Pour in a teaspoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
