- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 21 oz (600 g) salmon filets skin on or off
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 6 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
- 1 1/2 cups reduced fat cream
- 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
- Juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon
1- Heat oil a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season salmon with salt, pepper and garlic powder all over. Sear in the hot pan, flesh-side down first, for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Once cooked, remove from the pan and set aside.
2- Melt the butter in the same skillet. Sauté garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Pour in the white wine or broth; allow to reduce to half while scraping any bits off of the bottom of the pan.
3- Reduce heat to low-medium heat, add the cream and bring to a gentle simmer, while stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
4- Add the parmesan cheese and allow sauce to gently simmer for a further minute or so until the cheese melts and sauce thickens.
5- Add the salmon back into the pan, sprinkle with parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice. Taste test sauce and adjust salt and pepper, if needed.
