Salmon Florentine- dairy free, low carb

Beth Bollinger of Nest Wellness
Salmon Florentine is dairy free, and low carb and is easy enough for everyday, but fancy enough for company. This nutritious, dairy free and low carb meal comes together in under 30 minutes with just a handful of ingredients. I included this recipe in my Winter Detox recently and it was a group favorite along with my Easy, One Pot Sausage and White Bean Soup. Even if you have never cooked salmon before, this is an easy, tasty dish to master and one to include in your recipe rotation.

  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or sliced
  • ¼ cup shallots chopped
  • 8 crimini mushrooms
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 ¾ cups canned coconut milk
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 12 ounces wild caught salmon skinless
  • 2 cups baby spinach


  • Add the olive oil, garlic and shallots to a large skillet and saute until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Next add the mushrooms and continue to saute until the mushrooms are browned, about 5-7 minutes. Add the lemon juice to the pan to deglaze.
  • Add the coconut milk, thyme, sea salt and pepper. Stir well and bring the sauce to a gentle simmer. Add the salmon, nestling the pieces into the sauce. Cover and cook for five minutes or until salmon is cooked to your desired doneness.
  • Add the spinach to the sauce and cook for a few minutes, until wilted. Divide evenly between bowls and enjoy!


Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container for up to 2 days. 
For more flavor, add capers to the sauce as it cooks.
Serving ideas: serve over cauliflower rice, quinoa, barley or rice. Garnish with chopped parsley, dill and sliced almonds!
