Creamy Garlic Salmon and Shrimp is one of my all-time favorite weeknight meals. Made with tons of garlic, spinach, and cream in under 30 minutes!
Probably the easiest creamy garlic salmon and shrimp recipe you’ll ever make! Restaurant quality meal that also happens to be my all-time favorite salmon recipe.
Whether you’re on the lookout for a quick and simple meal or a meal that will impress your entire family, this is the recipe you want to try! I love serving this creamy salmon and shrimp over jasmine rice or creamy mashed potatoes.
Although some fettuccine would be marvelous as well! Go ahead and add as many veggies as you’d like. Mushrooms, green peas, and zucchini would make great additions.
