Creamy Salmon Piccata

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings



  1. Season salmon fillets evenly with salt and pepper. Add flour to a shallow dish; dredge the salmon in the flour to evenly coat. Shake off excess.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and then salmon; sauté 4 minutes on each side or until just cooked to your liking. Peel any skin off of salmon, if needed. Transfer salmon to a warm plate and cover with foil to keep warm; set aside.
  3. Add butter to skillet and once melted add garlic and sauté about 20 seconds.
  4. Pour in 1 cup chicken broth and let simmer until broth is reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Meanwhile in a small bowl whisk together remaining 1/3 cup broth with cornstarch.
  5. While whisking pour cornstarch mixture into reduced broth mixture. Cook and stir until thickened, about 1 minute.
  6. Stir in cream and lemon juice. Remove from heat, return salmon to skillet.
  7. Spoon sauce over salmon. Serve over Alessi pasta and sprinkle with capers and parsley. Serve immediately.
