Easy Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Salmon Recipe: In this healthy dinner recipe, a jar of sun-dried tomatoes does double duty: the tasty oil they come in is used to sauté the shallots, and the tomatoes themselves add a great flavor to the creamy sauce. Plus, the salmon is cooked just right, so this easy 20-minute weeknight meal can’t go wrong.

Easy Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Salmon Recipe



  • 1 ¼ pounds salmon
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • ½ cup slivered oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, plus 1 tablespoon oil from the jar
  • ½ cup finely chopped shallots
  • ⅓ cup dry white wine
  • ⅓ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice



  • Arrange rack in upper third of oven. Preheat broiler to high. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet, skin-side down. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Broil, rotating the pan from front to back once, until the salmon is opaque in the center, 8 to 12 minutes. Cut into 4 portions.


  • Meanwhile, heat sun-dried tomato oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sun-dried tomatoes and shallots; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Increase heat to high and add wine and broth. Cook until the liquid has mostly evaporated, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and stir in cream and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper; simmer for 2 minutes. Serve the salmon topped with the sauce and parsley and with the rice on the side.
