  • Pan sear the salmon by placing skin side down and turn to medium low heat.  Let it cook for about 7 minutes and then flip the salmon over and cook for an additional 3 minutes until it is barely pink in the center.  Set aside on a plate.
  • Add minced garlic to your pan and cook for a minute and then add the heavy cream, chicken broth, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese.  Whisk in the cornstarch and let simmer for 1-2 minutes.  Add spinach and sun-dried tomatoes and let simmer until spinach starts to wilt.  Add the salmon back to the pan.

How do I tell if salmon is cooked fully?

The meat is cooked with the fat liquifies and runs out.  Cook the salmon further only to get the degree of doneness that you desire.  When flakes separate easily but the meat is translucent, its rare but edible.

What is tuscan style food?

It is a blend of garlic, Italian style herbs, and can include spinach and sun dried tomatoes.  It is great served as a pasta dish.
