Creamy Garlic Butter Salmon with Parmesan and Mâche

© 2023 |

© 2023 |

Pan-seared salmon fillets in the buttery, garlicky tomato-and-mâche cream sauce with freshly grated 30-month Parmigiano Reggiano is wonderfully rich and packed with flavours. Serve the dish with some warm homemade crusty bread to soak up every last drop of deliciousness. Mâche, aka lamb's lettuce or cornsalad, has long spoon-shaped dark leaves and a distinctive, tangy flavour. It is used raw in salads as well as served as a vegetable. You can use baby spinach instead.

  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 4 x 125 g Salmon fillets, patted dry with paper towels
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 5 Garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 300 g Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 100 ml Homemade broth
  • 150 g Heavy cream
  • 100 g Mâche (or baby spinach)
  • 30 g Freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 2 tbsp Chopped dill (or flat parsley)
  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper on both sides. Rub in. When oil is shimmering but not smoking, add salmon, skin side up, and cook until deeply golden, 4-5 minutes. Flip over and cook 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and add butter. When butter has melted, stir in minced garlic and cook until fragrant, 30-45 seconds. Add halved cherry tomatoes and cook until tomatoes are beginning to burst.
  3. Add the homemade broth and heavy cream. Stir them in. Season with salt and pepper. Turn the heat to medium-low and stir in mâche, then grated Parmesan.
  4. Return salmon fillets to skillet and spoon over sauce. Simmer until salmon is cooked through, about 1-2 minutes more. Garnish with chopped dill and serve immediately.

...I love salmon and this looks great.

Lowcarb team member 2/2/23 22:58

A lovely recipe suggestion.
I know Mâche as 'lambs lettuce' but I think I'd use some baby spinach.

All the best Jan

Bill teases me about ordering salmon every time we go to a restaurant! So I'm always up for a new delicious recipe---he'll like this, too!

I love salmon, this looks delicious.

Anne in the kitchen 3/2/23 05:15

This has TheHub written all over it. I am bookmarking it to make later. I think I might still have some salmon filets in the freezer.

Eva Taylor 3/2/23 07:45

That salmon looks delicious. I wouldn’t have thought that mache would have enough structure to withstand being heated through but it definitely does! I love mache, it’s not as popular in Canada but is very popular in Europe (we had it last in Vienna). Lovely dish.

roentare 3/2/23 08:04

This looks too good to eat!

Lola Martínez 3/2/23 08:10

El salmón es uno de los pescados que consumo, nos gusta más que la carne, así que todas las recetas en que sea protagonista me van muy bien. Tu receta es sabrosa y sencilla, igual que las de mi cocina, así que me quedo con ella.

Margaret D 3/2/23 10:53

I'm a salmon lover, and this is a good recipe, looks very tasty.

DEZMOND 3/2/23 14:28

Have not heard of mache before!

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 3/2/23 14:34

Thanks for explaining what mache is. I haven't seen it over here in the UK before, however I would probably be able to get it in a specialist grocers or deli, I must investigate!

That lovely healthy salmon combined with a really rich and very calorie heavy sauce :) Delicious!!

It looks great too!

speedy70 3/2/23 17:37

Ottima preparazione con il salmone, grazie!!!!

David 3/2/23 22:01

Angie, I'd never heard of mache before so I learned something new. The salmon looks delicious and the presentation is over the top! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Hannah 4/2/23 01:00

Such an elegant and yet simple dish! I can imagine loving this with tofu to soak in all that sauce.

Grace 4/2/23 09:02

Balvinder 5/2/23 01:30

Angie, this really is amazing. I bake salmon a lot but never made the creamy sauce. Yes, I do cook chicken that way.

Chef Mimi 6/2/23 00:25

That is a beautiful presentation! I just learned what mache is last year. It’s also called corn salad here, so when I saw a recipe for tomato and corn salad, I couldn’t figure out where the corn was!!! Live and learn!

foodtravelandwine 6/2/23 02:04

I love salmon!...this salmon is so creative, elegant, tasty and full of nutrients....I will title it "Angie's salmon!!"......Abrazotes, Marcela

Happy Retiree's Kitchen 6/2/23 10:23

This looks perfect for a Winter's meal. We love salmon and with that sauce it would be incredible.

Marcelle 8/2/23 15:39

Oh Angie, I already know we will love this dish! Gorgeous pictures in this post (as always!!). It's been way too long since I've cooked salmon, now I know just how I will prepare it! I'll definitely be sopping up that sauce with some crusty bread! Yum!
