These delicious well-seasoned salmon fillets are soft and juicy on the inside with amazing crisp edges. The meaty goodness is then smothered in a tasty garlic butter spinach and sun-dried tomato cream sauce to make an incredible dish.

The best part, the recipe is very easy, quick, and simple. If you are more adventurous, you can add a little white wine to the sauce for more flavor instead of the vegetable broth.
