Is there anything better than a really great pasta dish? The kind you order at your favorite Italian fine dining establishment?

Salmon with Creamy Tuscan Sauce and lobster ravioli on a plate.

I can’t think of one. Which is why I created this mouth-watering Creamy Tuscan Salmon dish with Lobster Ravioli that you can make at home. (Yep! I heard angels singing too! Salmon AND Lobster Ravioli together… Say What?!!)

There’s something so wonderful and relaxing about sitting down to a dish that you savor. Where all the components and elements mingle in your mouth in one heavenly experience. 

I’ve always made Salmon one way. Grilled with butter and seasoning. It’s simple, quick, and how my family discovered they liked Salmon, even though they’re not fish fans! But when it’s cold and snowy outside you don’t exactly want to grill on the back porch. 

That meant coming up with a dish that could be made on the stove top! I searched and tweaked a few I found floating around out there and this is what I whipped up! An absolutely amazing dish you’re sure to enjoy if you’re a Salmon lover.

How To Make Salmon in Cream Sauce with Ravioli

NOTE: If you’re making Lobster Ravioli to go along with this dish, which I purchase at Costco, however it can be found at other retail stores… you’ll want to start a large pot boiling with 8–10 cups of water.

This dish starts with 21–24 ounces of Salmon Fillets, skin on or off. However, if there are just two of you, you can just use two fillets, or about 16 ounces of Salmon. 

Cut your Salmon into individual fillets about 2–3 inches wide. Rinse and pat dry on a paper towel. Season with Salt & Pepper to taste, and with a sprinkle of garlic powder.

Salmon Fillets rinsed and on a paper towel seasoned with salt and pepper.

Heat 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear in hot skillet, flesh side down first if you’re using salmon with the skin still on. If using skinless Salmon like I did, place the Salmon with the bottom down.

The salmon is done on one side when the flesh changes color halfway through the fish. You can see from the photo below the fish as it is changing color from the bottom up. About 5 minutes per side.

Once the Salmon is cooked with beautiful golden crusty edges, remove the fillets from the pan and set aside on a plate.

Melt 3 Tablespoons of butter in the same skillet. Sautè 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds) and you’re beginning to drool!  (As you can see my patience in waiting for the butter to melt was not happening on photo shoot day! I was hungry…can ya blame a girl?)

Pour in 1/2 cup dry white wine or broth. I know not everyone likes to cook with wine. However, let me just say this…nothing, and I do mean NOTHING, can come close to recreating the amazing flavor that wine can in a sauce. Especially a creamy garlic white sauce like this dish has.

Allow the mixture to reduce to half while scraping any bits off of the bottom of the pan.

Reduce the heat to low-medium. Slowly add 1 1/2 cups heavy cream.

Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer while stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.

NOTE: This is about the time you want to add the Ravioli to the boiling water and cook per package instructions.

Add 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan Cheese. Stir the cheese into the sauce and allow it to continue to gently simmer for a minute or more until the cheese melts and the sauce thickens.

Add the cooked salmon back into the pan, add the cooked and drained Lobster ravioli into the pan,  sprinkle the dish with freshly chopped parsley. Taste the sauce and adjust with salt and pepper if necessary. I found it perfect as is…but you may want a little more “kick”!

Every single bite of this dish is lusciously wicked! The Salmon is flaky, tender and moist. The flavor is subtle. The delicate Tuscan buttery white wine sauce is amazing. Add freshly cooked Lobster Ravioli Pasta, and you’ll impress yourself and your guests with your cooking talents! (Take that Julia and Martha!)

Why can't I find the 4 reviews?

Hi Erich! I'm not sure why? I'm looking into it with my technical team to see why those reviews are not available for viewing? They should be, I'm wondering if it's part of the new privacy act every state and country seems to be implementing. I'll get back to you as soon as I have a resolution. They should be available for viewing. Sorry. Norine
