Salmon in Cream

Salmon in cream.I wanted to share this simple, but delicious recipe which Danya’s mom taught me a couple of months ago1. A great thing about this recipe is that it takes very little time to cook, so it’s easily doable on a work day evening. Another good thing is that fish in cream somehow tastes less fishy than for example its grilled variety, which is a big plus for a girl whose husband is not a fish fan. )

Anyhow. You’ll need:
  • Boneless salmon fillet, 1-1.5 pounds
  • Half-and-half or heavy cream, 1-2 cups
  • Butter, 2-3 tablespoons
  • Garlic, 2-4 cloves
  • Fresh Basil
  • Fresh Dill
  • Capers (optional)
  • Red Caviar (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper

Melt butter in a pan, add cream and wait until it starts boiling. Add finely chopped or pressed garlic, chopped basil and dill, cubed salmon, salt, pepper and bring to a boil again. Then cover the pan, reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 12 minutes. Add capers, simmer for another minute or two – and it is ready! ) Serve with pasta and a salad (I made a simple salad of finely chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and dill with salt and a splash of vinegar). Decorate with red caviar.
